Dump related...

I don't know why it struck me as odd that the 3rd party dump service emptied their tank at the dump station:

And then there was this blue boy turd wagon. Again- just struck me odd... to have it that far in the air:

I didn't realize they made a 2-wheel towable.

Hi,

Just found the picture...

This class A put out a huge pyre of smoke as it went up in flames at Rock Cut State Park, IL a couple of years ago. Nobody injured, thankfully.

FWIW.

My parents have a couple of these. They've had them for probably 30+ years.

They are tow-able in the fact that you can tie a string around the handle and attach it to a hitch ball. Which, if you look at the picture closely, is exactly what they did.

Something I saw driving through Dayton Ohio on I-75 south. I saw 3 class A diesel pushers, each towing a pickup toad with a golf cart in the bed of each. They had themselves a convoy!

Did not get a picture.. But saw a double trailer for the first time ever cruising by me.. I was shocked they made it here from OH (not allowed here).

This just pulled up next to me in a campground in Traverse City, MI.

To be fair, he disconnected it in a site 2 spots over, and then pulled the MH in next to me in the other spot. So maybe he was just pulling the RPod over here from a local spot for a friend. But it did raise my eyebrows.
