Actually, when it gets windy you’d have to put the awning in and you’d lose the protection for the roof of the slideout. I like that Rockwood and some other brands put awnings on some models’ front slideouts. That way you can have the topper to protect the slideout roof full time and put out the awning on the slide weather permitting.

Yep they probably take it to the red neck yacht club and mud park in Punta Gorda as often as they can. Google it but don't let the thread get off track

Don't know about tonnage but it has Seating for four but not crew nor extended cab.

Short bed, about two ft. Put a 5er hitch there but still no short turning radius. Highway speed limited but I bet it would climb a brick wall.

DISCLAIMER: Not in an RV park and not sure if its an elaborate joke:

Sent to me by a friend. Presented without comment, except that the attached trailer must ride real smooth-like with all that torsional springiness in the hitch

Maybe he pulls his kids around on a toboggan. I've seen some rich people come up with stupid ideas, makes you wonder how they lived long enough to make the money.

It is at least 15-19 years old! Lucky it didn't rust apart yet.

Exactly one of the reasons we passed on a Newmar upgrade from our Forester.

No slide topper on curb side living area slide and awning was supposed to take its place.

When I asked what about bad weather when you bring in the awning they said just bring the slide in.

Kind of defeated the whole purpose of having 4 slides.

Truck pulling fifth wheel and flat towing a smart car. I actually know of another fellow who is flat towing a Jeep behind his setup but I never got to see it all hitched up.

And, then there’s this. This is the noon lineup for check-in for first-come/first-serve sites. They don’t allow you to arrive before noon so everyone stages at nearby parking lots and flood the park at noon.

What you can’t see is the 1/2 mile road to the gate is also filled with RVs.

Personally, last week we hung out in the Walmart parking lot until 1pm and took a left-over site. No rush, no waiting, and we got shopping and lunch out of the way!

I just checked Redwoods WEB site and found this:"WELDED HITCH RECEIVER

FIT's integrated hitch receiver can haul 3,000 pounds of additional cargo (300 lb. tongue capacity)."
