With that said... I have never seen such a thing. It's like a vehicular mullet. My friend says its a "Centurion Conversion" and says they are rare as hens teeth.

It can be yours for a cool $20K

Wow, a Ford version of the Suburban!

There was a much nicer version in the late 80's early 90's on the bronco platform. It was also an after market conversion.Click image for larger version

Is that off March Ln? That's close to the turn around basin. Great fishing in there for striper and bass

Yes, at the west end of March Lane. There were three large ships this morning. Good fishing for sure.

In an RV Park in Grants, NM

Obviously home built but the owner has named it a "Squarestream"


The hoist on the back is operated by a boat trailer winch and it's used to lift his handicaped wife into the back. She stands on it, he cranks the winch, she's lifted.

All built on a Ford Ranger pickup.

That's awesome. I noticed the wheel chair but not the winch.

I posted this to Facebook on the Learn to RV page, but thought I'd share it here. Check out this DIY tripod:

Not all that unusual, but I haven't seen this anywhere else so it was a first for me. Golf carts seemed pretty popular at Forest Lake RV & Campground.

That's awesome. I bought extra heavy duty ramps for when I can take mine.

Not long ago, I posted pics of goofy driving in a park - where a trailer tow-er went the wrong direction on a one-way road and turned too short — dropped his/her road side tires into the ditch off the end of the culvert.
Here are more.

This guy couldn’t just drive up the paved road from the left of this pic and back his boat off the road to the right. He HAD to turn left and drive across grass and half way across an empty site. He drove through hauled in sand and left these tracks. A lady pulling a much larger boat backed in “correctly” a little further down.

This unexplained activity occurred in the utility area between two parallel sites. How? Why would you subject your oil pan to the concrete sewer dump apron?

Here someone drove off the road and took out 2 “hard to see” marker posts and an invisible water spigot. The camp host had to reset the posts.

You just get all the best people watching don't you. Maybe the middle picture they were due for an oil change and figured hey I have a waste drain right here.

Goes to show....ya can’t fix stupid, cuz its so fun to watch! But, have an adult beverage and laugh! And turn em in if ya can!

This past summer, a guy in Colorado National Monument drove over the campsite pole maneuvering his rig “just so”, with his new Ram 3500 dually 4x4. Post was hugely imbedded in concrete. Lifted the whole front end off the ground! Did damage to his bumper, grille, wind dam, and tie-rod ends, punctured his oil pan (well, something left a bunch of oily stuff behind.....)

Too bad, no pictures.

No Dump Station? No Problem!

We'll just pull up alongside the curb and pull the valve handle. After all, the gutter is designed to drain liquids, isn't it?



This pic was taken in the RV parking area at the Wildhorse Casino near Pendleton, OR. Toilet paper and all.

Almost like how the tour bus driver for the Dave Mathews Band did in Chicago. Dumped the bus tanks while on the grated deck of a bridge. Too bad for the tour boat going under the bridge though.

Why are people such pigs? Maybe the offenders should have their home addresses published with the suggestion that everyone dump their RV's in front of their homes.
