That bridge was 11 ft 5 inches. It was on the Facebook earlier. Hopefully insured for replacement cost.

Yeah, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

If the DW told him "I don't think you should go under that bridge" he will be regretting it for decades.

That's a mid-1960s mobile home, not a travel trailer.

It really does not matter pretty cool to see what is still around. Many of the older mobile homes were very similar to the travel trailers. Esp in the 50's and early 60's.

Close, Scrapper. I googled it. It's a Heisler. Used to be an old Climax loco in operation somewhere in SE Wisconsin.

Things you see in an RV Park

I intended my repair rule as a joke. But at the rally you can get items fixed by FR. I think over the years what they will fix has changed. So for 2018 it could well be different than 2017.

You can read thru the Rally thread and see comments on items that people thanked FR for repairing.
