When you don't have a tow vehicle....

Before & After

Backstory: Severely chemically addled older (?) couple was evicted from the park for some reason or another. Guess they couldn't move the thing. I jump started their ratty old escalade at least 10 times over the last few weeks to help them out. Kinda sad, but I can't really argue with parks that enforce an age or condition limit. Everything else here is in pretty decent shape.

Odd little trailer....

Reminds me of our cg seasonal neighbors 8 years ago. TT was an older model with wood clapboard siding and 2 manual slideouts. It looked real nice from both inside and out. Because of health reasons they decided they couldn't continue being seasonals. The TT had sat on the same site for 18yrs and didn't fair well when it was pulled off the site. CG owner had to use a skidloader to clean it up.

I'm sorry but I'd argue a bit with the age thing. The condition thing is ok as long as there are set standards.

I've seen older campers in better condition than ones 5-6 yrs old. As an owner of what is now a 10 yr old camper it's a little frustrating if you're an honest individual.

I've never been kicked out of a park but I've questioned if they're going to allow us.

My camper is in overall good condition. It's bright white and the decals are faded and cracking a bit in places. It's in no immediate danger of falling apart though and I'd put it up against anything in the 5-10 yr old range.

So I’ve heard the term “parking lot maintenance “ but I’ve never seen a whole rear end dropped out at a campground. 😳

Maybe it's a modern "sculpture?"

Seen at a campground near me just this weekend... the infamous Mandy Harvey (the deaf singer from AGT) along with some other incredibly talented musicians playing from Wed night until Sunday night to some interesting people around an 'Irish' coffee pot ... check out my post in 2019 sites for more info (& join us any time for some coffee!)

Not sure what they were up to, but on our trip to Texas a year ago in January, there was a guy running his welder in a CG in north Kentucky. Too cold for me to be working outside.
