Curios to what year that one is, because I don't recall GM offering them with the square headlights, although that one looks like the headlights might be a modification from the old dual-round style

Tim, I've been watching this site/unit for almost a week so I could ask the owner some questions and I haven't seen a person there yet.

See I am a freak. I would just laugh, take pics for FRF and go on. I am sure they had some reason. Maybe reverse went out on the way and they are gonna circle around. Maybe in a hurry to no.2 or maybe just a rookie.

Yes, things you DON'T WANT to see in an RV park. Pretty sad.

That was a quote from the guy running the 2 wheel drive chevy up a slope of 15% that was soaked.

The truck towing it out was 1500 chevy.

We have done that before when camping with friends. We cleared it and got the OK from the campground when we booked it.

And you brought long enough cord and hose and didn't tell the neighbor first come first served. Then didn't steal cords from nice people.

And then deny it! (Or is it "and then didn't deny it?" - This is getting confusing! )

After first denying they took anything and me telling them I would report it stolen (with witnesses) and making their name public on all the message boards, they mailed the items to me. Cost them $35 extra dollars.

Narcissism is on the rise among campers!
That's why i don't loan crap unless i am watching it being used.

Nope, brought all the extra cords, stinky slinkies and hoses. As a matter of fact, as we were camping with friends I even gave him a set of depth micrometers that were actually mine and didn't take anything from them.

As far as the lying thief mentioned earlier, lets just say my opinion of such people is very low.

I could never do that to a dog. Someone should dress the owner like that.
