No it's to the right. There were several awnings lost this weekend though. They went to bed and left their stuff exposed.

Guess you can tell I'm kinda bored. Too wet to do much here.

Wonder if this is a DIY or factory tent with shell supports?

You might be a Redneck if...

I think that's kinda cool except the door and the a/c insulation job.

Wow, doesn't that look like an accident waiting to happen? (And they actually got license plates??)

I can't remember what the requirements are for "home built" trailers to get plates, but it's not much. And half the time the guys doing "trailer inspections" don't even get out of their chair to look at them.

I'd be most concerned that his hitch welding job looks like his insulation job.

Looking closely I think that "insulation" around the A/C unit is actually an orange extension cord wrapped around it for storage...

It is better to have too much truck than to have too much trailer.

I think that is the prototype for the new 5th wheels... they can be towed from either end just depends on your TV setup
Happy Trails

For some reason, I get the impression this is a portable office.

I saw this last week in Bull Shoals-White River State Park. Somebody didn't tie down their screen room before a storm.

Wow! Perhaps OK for the young folks. We older RVers no longer have buffalo bladders and can not make it through the night without an onboard head. Just saying.

Limped in here and replaced truck windshield and did some temp repairs to slow leaks on the way to Michigan. It was tore up!


And that is one of the main reasons we no longer have an Airstream in our driveway.

That front a/c unit just looks odd to me. Wonder which way the water runs off. Also, how tall is it?

By the time he puts all of that pin weight onto that truck, the AC height won't be an issue!!
