You need a better camera, there's some sort of blue blobs on the lens that block out much of the subject being photographed.

TT rider

The person riding in it must not have seen a TT blown apart in wreck!

Riding in a trailer is illegal in California. Riding in a truck camper is legal.

One thing that irks me to no end, and can make a fender bender deadly where instead they would have nothing but maybe a bruise, and leaves the driver 100% liable are those that allow their passenger to sit with their feet on the dash or out the window. Hell even a fast stop can cause injuries. The seat belt becomes deadly it can break the passengers neck, strangle them, or even decapitate them. and if that doesn't happen, their back will be broken when they are periscoped under the dash and their knees go behind their heads, as well as what the airbag can do.



Back to the topic at hand

According to Michigan laws, there are no statutes stating whether a passenger can or cannot ride in a trailer, but if they do, the driver is 100% liable for any injuries that occur.

article from 2017
Quote:
Michigan Law does not prohibit riding in a camper; however, in accordance with MCL 257.710(e) (seatbelt law), children under the age of 16 would be prohibited from doing so if there were passenger seats available in the vehicle towing the camper.

Reviewing 257.710e, no mention of trailers. Doing a search of 257 has no mentions of passengers in travel trailers.

Lucille Ball and Demi Arnez did a movie I believe it was called the longest trailer. It is very funny she gets in the back and tries to cook dinner. It is very funny.
I guess if it is legal in some states and not others would have to stop in the ones that aren’t and jump in the truck. LoL

I worry very little about what others do in their vehicles that may be dangerous to THEM. Only worry about what might be dangerous to ME.

I am not part of the crowd that thinks everyone should be "bubble-wrapped". I learned a long time ago that people will do stupid things no matter how many times they're told it isn't wise or how many laws make it illegal.

Best reference I could find: https://www.tripsavvy.com/passengers-in-campers-504228

Says Yes to Michigan (to coin a phrase).

I disagree, there should be no laws to protect you from yourself.

Should it be done, probably not. How many people that think it is a bad idea will be forced to do it if it is allowed. None.

So let Darwin sort it out. Works for me. Let the dumb ones who survive suffer the rest of their life thinking how stupid it was to do what they did.

I tend to agree however--------

Sometimes people that survive spend the rest of their life being cared for by "taxpayers". Even those who are only injured and recover in a few months put a burden on the healthcare system with many being un/under insured.

The costs of their care is spread among all the others that have the means to pay for their care in the hospital.

So true, which circles back to my original statement, sometimes you have to keep the stupid from doing stupid things, or we all wind up paying for their stupidity. Really fits with the OP.

That's like saying a 6yo orphan with a brain tumor or cancer has to pay for their own healthcare.

Riding in trailers is not legal in most places because the Rail Roads got the laws passed when the Bus companies were looking at adding trailers to buses to increase passenger capacity and the RRs did not want the extra competition.

Not at all. But someone does, usually through incheased medical expenses to all.

Sometimes charity covers the cost but not always.
