If it was him, he would start the Jeep, put it in 4W low and drive em both right out. No cops, no tow truck, no problem.

Yah, wasn't me. It's a Newmar. Not 100% sure but I think He backed into and maybe over the hydrant. The water coming out of the hydrant created a huge sink hole and after a while, the RV went wheels up. What a dope. This happened on the Cape yesterday.

Good idea but it takes a pretty big saw to cut through a 1ft concrete block at fishing bridge. It would work in several of the sites I have been to with PVC though.

That's got to be the fastest way I know to fill a holding tank......and a coach!

I would not want to have to explain that to my insurance company.

Nice ! I have not seen a used one in private use for years. There were many in personal use in the 1960s and 70s, Not sure that I could get the DW to sleep in one though.

Though it sure would be interesting to listen in. Proverbial fly on the wall, so to speak.

We were on the way to our dealer where we would eventually purchase our Grey Wolf, this was sitting just outside the entrance. We almost turned around.
