Couple across from my current site spent part of this afternoon putting that clear packing tape on the inside of their class A's windshield. Seems a bird impacted them just about dead center of the glass. They are hoping a tech shows up tomorrow to do a replacement,

If I had been driving when that happened, I would be pulling over immediately to get into clean pants...

That would be this National Park: https://www.nps.gov/asis/index.htm A very nice place to camp as long as the wind is coming off the ocean, if it is off the land the green head flies will eat you alive. The ponies come up and steal any food you leave outside the rv.

Not in a rv park but this picture has been out there for a while
it is a 52' fifth wheel made by weekend warrior who makes some of the biggest toy haulers

Wow. Take a look at that luxury fifth wheel trailer up there. I always thought this picture was shopped until now.
Just found out more about this fifth wheel! It’s not photoshopped. It’s one of two very large 5th wheel toy haulers Weekend Warrior built that were this big. Toterhome toy hauler luxury.
Many people out there use fifth wheel trailers, and there’s lots of interest in the RV community in big ones with lots of features and amenities, but what is the limit?
The owner of one of the toy haulers was the owner of the company, and CEO, from what I have read. I mean the owner-and-CEO of Weekend Warrior fifth wheels (and I think they do motor homes as well).
For the owner I guess it makes sense to have such a big toterhome trailer — a bit of marketing probably doesn’t hurt.

FWIW: Assateague has two camping areas, one is a Maryland state park the other is the federal one. Both are on the North end of the island. The South end is federal only and has no camping. Both the north and south have wild ponies BUT, they are totally different herds. The northern ponies are owned by the state of Maryland, the southern ponies are owned by the Chincoteague fire department. It is the southern herd that is involved in the pony penning channel swim.

Not in an RV park, but it was an expected surprise for us on our grandson's 13th birthday. Haven't seen one of these in this area for a very long time.

Maybe he cut off the left front of the trailer so he can at least run on a NASCAR Track.

That hitch is about halfway between the center line of the axles and the tailgate. AND the truck is not squatting.

I agonized how to hitch a 5'er up to the Excursion. Here is the answer.

Honestly, it looks like a F750 or F850 with a F350 body on it. See those all the time around here. I bet that wouldn't squat a millimeter under that 5'ers pin weight.

For those that can't imagine or have ever seen one here is what they look like. This is an 03 F650. No, not mine. I personally think they are useless.
