I saw a similar set up one time and I got to talking to the guy that owned it. Once you know the story, it makes perfect sense...

He delivered fresh fruit to local businesses. The genny/air con setup would allow him to keep the back cool enough for the fruit, as the A/C in the van wasn't nowhere near enough. The van was way more nimble and usable than a big reefer truck.

I thought it was genius, in a red-neck sort of way. you can even see some fruit boxes on the bumper by the genny.

Lol. I think that might be his outside storage.

Pine Hills RV Park, PEI, Canada

If someone has any opinions or knows anything about this trailer I'd appreciate hearing them. It was seen just a few days ago as I camped in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Obviously a seasonal and you can see "Command Centre" written on the side. There is also a URL but it's not fully visible.

I should of asked at the sign in desk about it. Reminds me of a caboose on a train, something long obsolete.

No photo....today I was driving home on the highway. Passed a guy in a pickup towing a 25-foot bumper pull. He had two bicycles on the back, clamped to the flimsy bumper. They had about 18 to 24 inches of play. Guessing he'll lose them sooner rather than later. And NO weight distributing hitch! He was weaving all over the road.

Looks like a Keystone Outback loft toyhauler. Couple of model numbers were 27L and 27T I believe.

Coming to a state park near you. It's a palomino but at the end of the job is not the time to buy a RV unless you have another job lined up.

I don't like the looks of the center of gravity on this trailer.

I've saw several of these out West. The ones I've looked at always had the vehicle on the bottom & boat or toys on top ??

That would certainly lower the center of gravity!

How do you know that the foam board hasn't increased the curb appeal?
