Strange Sights

One of my favorite things to do in the morning is go for a walk around the campground. There's always something that will peak my interest. Iíve been doing this for 10 years and I always enjoy seeing unique RVs or unique campsite items.

This past trip was no different. I came across some tent campers that had a rather unusual ďthingĒ on the roof of their van. When I first saw it I thought it was some weird type of light for the campsite, but as I got closer I thought it might be a homemade TV antenna. The campers werenít outside and I didnít want to knock on their tent flap so I never did find out exactly what it was.

What do you think it is, a light, a TV antenna, or something else?

You are so right. Not that is weird.

My money is on "homemade" TV antenna for a TV in the van. The bucket might cover a motor to rotate the wing elements.

TV antenna gets my vote too. Truly a conversation piece.

On second thought, after rewading the 'pet peave' thread yesterday, I think it's some kind of electronic device that wards off barking dogs, dogs that poop on your site, kids that are loud & unruley, people that walk thru your site, drunks after 2AM, kids with RC cars, etc.

I think you're right, it's an ARCZ, (anti-respectful camper zapper). OC N T FAB N CHASSIS shop are in the final stages of making the tooling. Production to start in the near future.

I'll guess it could be a Wi-Fi or cell phone antenna. maybe a booster under that bucket.

Elvis calling home?
