So......like he doesn’t have sewer pipe shorter than the 50’ version?

Did anyone else see the orange stands are not really under his left rear jack?

Yeah, I saw it. The jack is not quite half on the orange stands. I haven’t talked to him since I saw it.

That doesn't look to bad at all. If you get out camping it still beats not doing anything at all.

Don’t have to wonder what he retired from I’m guessing.

I shudder to think what kind of mileage it gets, though.

Looks like they carry enough of their own water to float their boat!

This is one of 14 limos the Big Texan steak house has. They all have the horns and picked us up and delivered us back for the price of tips. Great place to visit in Amarillo.

Oh... I dunno bout that.

I was a Firefighter (volunteer) for 14 year and I can assure you that chicks dig the big red truck.

Nothing more American than Driving a main-line pumper in a 4th of July parade, Huge US flags flying from the extended floodlight poles, a genuine Dalmatian dog in the hose bed and 7 or so extremely lovely young ladies crowded in the cab.

A very good memory.

Tim

Maybe the driver isn't looking for the company of woman. Maybe she is looking for something else.

Not technically at a RV park, this was at the spring race at Phoenix International Raceway in 2017.

Friday afternoon I was sitting in my camping chair watching people arrive and I saw this trailer with something like 8+ people riding on the rear bumper. What the heck- are they that drunk already?

So I grabbed a beer and went over to see what was up - this could be an interesting party!

At this point I need to say that we had a c-class built on an F450 chassis. I had no clue about CCCs or anything like that, although I think I would have been hard pressed to overload it considering the space available.

Anyway, I walk up and the guy is lost - completely dumbfounded. He said he was coming in on the interstate, hit a little "whoop" in the road - you know, where the suspension momentarily unloads and then "lands" again loading the suspension heavily - and suddenly the trailer was dragging.

I remember the guy screaming into the phone at the dealer/manufacturer or whoever about the thing being a lemon and what a POS it was.

I went back to our camping/parking spot and watched as they unloaded 20-some-odd coolers of beer, food and ice and several more 30 packs of beer and miscellaneous camping supplies: tents, chairs, etc.

Again, at the time I knew nothing about weight capacities of trucks or trailers. I couldn't tell you what series or brand truck he had or even if it was tail-dragging.

Now, after joining this site, I understand the importance of weight capacities and the seriousness of obeying the limits.

In the first photo below, note how the propane tanks have hit the front of the trailer. The second pic shows a close-up of the buckled frame.

I guess it could have been a manufacturer defect, but after seeing what they pulled out of the trailer, I would put my money on it being … "just a little over weight">
