Spending all my time here on FRF over in the 5th wheel area. You guys over here in the tent trailer forum will get a kick out of this.............
As a kid, our family had this for a tow vehicle 1968 Olds Delmont 88. Fast car, full heavy duty frames back then. Plenty of power and brakes for towing a tent trailer.
The RV was a Bethany popup tent trailer with only 1 slide out. Dad bought an add on kit and installed it himself as we needed more room as family grew. Yup an old school salmon colored rig. Early 60's is my guess.
No electric cord. Just 12 volt battery and 1 propane tank for heat and oven. Might of had a fridge but I doubt it.
Anyway, see those stabilizer legs that pop down in the back.....Dad took the ol Bethany off of the car hitch AND forgot to put the stabilzer legs down. You know the stress of family vacation with kids. Well mom has the table set, dinner cooking on the stove, and then all hell broke loose.
Us kids decided we should ALL try out the new slide out on the rear side of the trailer. Too much weight and the poor Bethany popped a wheelie. Stuff went flying everywere including hot liquids on the stove.
Dad said that's it, you kids are too big and old for tent trailer camping. We are selling the trailer when we get back home. Mom said......wait for it, wait for it........Did somebody forget to put the stabilizer legs down? Now you get to help me clean up the mess. You kids go outside and
True story and that was the end of my RV camping!!!
