Things you see in an RV Park

All I can say is: “those things are not near as heavy as they look”. If they were he wouldn’t be pulling with a pickup.

Possibly moving them without power plants in them ??

According to their website the Sherp ATV weighs about 3,000 pounds dry...each. And they have a CCC of 2,200 pounds. Website Here Even empty if I was towing two of them I'd be rethinking that hitch set up....

Google is your friend.

SHERPs appear to be russian-built ATVs:

MMMMMMMMM Goes to show... people will buy anything

The Sherp cost is about the same between the pickup and the Pro. The Pro starts about $125,000 because of netting, Molly strapping, and demand for the Pro model in vast very cold environments like the Canadian oil fields. The other consideration is a trailer to transport the Sherp ATV since it is not street legal

I'd be surprised if that isn't a custom paint job or body wrap.

We have a custom painter in town doing all the chopped hot rods and rat rods and that exact kind of paint job is the new fad.

Well everyone said the less you retract them the more stability you get right.

It's not. Better off extending them fully than block them.

The process to paint the rust like that is actually simple, yet involved. Sand through the paint where you want the rust, to bare metal. Then pour vinegar over it to expedite the rust process. In a couple days you get the rusty look. Rinse off vinegar, dry, and clear coat to stop the rusting process and seal it. That mustang though I'm thinking may be a vinyl wrap.

I thought for a long time that it made sense to block the stabilizers up and extend them as little as possible. But it's true that the camper is more stable when they are extended a lot. Seems counter-intuitive, but it's true. I always use a 1-1/2" block because I read that if you happen to drive off with the stabilizers down, you stand less chance of damaging them this way. I can't imagine forgetting them but I have done some things....
