The down side was, it was hot during the summer and lacked adequate A/C venting, and it was tall and cumbersome to pull. Could have benefitted from bigger axles and tires.

When we say we're "glamping", they would be considered "glunting" when they hit the woods.

They could walk away from that show today and not feel one twinge financially.

Doesn't hurt that Willie and Jase "married money" as well.

In all sincerity those are some fine "down home folks" that haven't let fame or fortune go to their heads.

For years there was a mobile home sales lot just outside Hattiesburg, MS that had a two story model on display out front.

Not a good idea, IMO, in an area so prone to tornados.
