I like seeing the old ones out and about. It looks like that one still hits the road.

I am judging from afar.... That doesn't look very heavy duty from this distance.

It was running down across the road and into the lake. Lots of toilet paper and it smelled, it was not gray tank even though that would be bad also. It was an older MH so maybe it only had one tank. We walked up to the office and informed the manager and she gave us a sarcasic "they souldn't be doing that should they?" They absolutely didn't care and this MH continued to dump on the ground all weekend. Here is a picture of the aftermath, there were actual ruts in the ground from their dumping and they would occasionally pick up some of the TP but as you can see, not all. Unbelievable!

I'm sure the Illinois State Health Dept would not allow a park, Privately owned or not, to let something like that get by and would no doubt levy some hefty fines if they knew.

Definitely no motor. They had to make it light enough to pull behind their VW.

A travel trailer / class c hybrid.

I'd be willing to bet they removed more than just the engine.

It is at Ocean Lakes beside the I section Bathhouse. They are at that location often.

Aside from the above comments....complain to manager/approach owner/health department....I'm left wondering who in their right mind thinks that this is acceptable to begin with?

I like the nice job they did on the front wheel wells. Even better is leaving the headlights & wipers intact...
