Yes that is a possibility and all things being relative, a better situation than living under a bridge. Although I imagine the amount of gas to run it would be expensive, perhaps still more affordable than paying heat as you said.

And Turbs, I had the exact same thought, 'What does the sign on the door say?" I tried to make the image bigger to see if I could read it and no such luck!

Looks like thay brought everything with them so they won't have to go back. Can't say I blame them looking at temps up their way. I would move further South but Florida is already to crowded for me.

I did read the sign and it was a warning that the premises were under constant video surveillance and was equipped with a recording device.
I personally don't know anyone that would rob the place but you can't be to carefully.
Weezer my thoughts were the same as yours and that's why I refrained from making fun of the rig. It was one of the strangest collection of stuff I've seen I a while and can't imagine WallMart allowing this to sit at their parking lot entrance for long. It wasn't there last week.

Ah! Thanks for letting us know what the sign said, now that's one less thing that'll be running through my head wondering about!

The pics make for an interesting story so I suppose I'll still be wondering what the story is I have an active imagination and could come up with quite a few story lines.

We stopped close to it and took pictures. I thought someone would come out but they didn't. The windows were open and I'm not shy but really didn't want to knock on the door. I have to head that way tomorrow so I'll see if it's still their. It makes the Breaking Bad Motorhome look like a Prevost.

Oh wouldn't that be something. I'll keep a look out but I think we are safe. The Walmart is 30 miles away and I don't think it can make it that far.

Yikes!!!

I have tried to fathom what force was placed where to cause the left rear damage. It is like it is drooping and tearing. Only thing I can assume is the leftward roll is related - is must have gone over something big on that side at speed.

A somewhat worrisome fact is that the trailer only has one safety chain.

Again.... Yikes!!!
