4) 5th wheel to gooseneck adaptors are generally frowned upon for RV type trailers.
5) safety chains not crossed (but might be a state thing... Some states require it, some not)
6) of course, with a 5th wheel, you do not need a WDH.

I can't imagine this ending in any way except tragically.

Not in a campground, but thought this was pretty cool.

Not KOA but DOA (dead on arrival) and check out the rear rack.

Seen out and away from any campground. Good thing it wasn't parallel parking.

Is it just me or does this TV operator need some trailering lessons? He came from the left (the road is One Way to the left so he was going against the grain) and dragged the left tires of his trailer through a fairly deep ditch barely missing the street sign. His trailerís rear end cut out a chunk of asphalt.

WOW! From the looks of that culvert pipe it appears that others have taken the shortcut as well!

If that doesn't discourage tail gating, nothing will!

Looks like the rear tire carried all the weight while the front tire was in the air. Then the front tire carried the weight while the rear tire was in the air!
I didn’t get to see it happen.

I sure hope I never have to put my fw in that situation.

Since that road is one way, the park didn’t expect anyone to make that left turn that has an angle much less than 90 degrees. ... but many have!

Is there a better way if you go further ahead?

Yes, they want you to make a short loop and come in from what is the right side in the first pic. Then one merely bears a little right at that ďYĒ.

Need a "like" button similar to Facebook. I'd take a picture of a FB thumbs up but it probably would appear sideways

Air bnb is like a hotel room but is is ran by the person who owns the property. Some people buy houses just for it. Or put a camper on your property and rent it.
