It was nice of someone to go ahead and pull out the crime scene tape for them

I wanted to know more about the RV rafts in Arkansas.

This RV is here at the Goshen rally. I keep expecting to see Darth Vader emerge from this black unit.

From Bremen, IN..........campground we stopped at one night on way to Land O' Goshen.

I'm pretty sure this is permanent! LOL

Campers on both sides of him as far as you can see. I'm across the street from him. A few were obviously permanent, but he took it to a whole nother level. If they raise the monthly rent to a million dollars a month, he's stuck!

Looks like there could be an entire meth lab in the front room. Look at the squat on the Chevy's rear tires. I don't understand how the front stabs could still be attached.

The salesman was right, it is half ton towable! And, "you should be fine without WDH"

Park models aren't typically meant to travel around in but they do have wheels. It doesn't happen often but I have seen them moved from site to site and from CG to CG.

Although squatting for sure, it isn't as bad as the trailer pitch makes it appear. Gotta think the draw bar is still way low... even with a WD.

I have a little cargo trailer about the same size for my motorcycle sans the pink flamingo and bicycle.

At a local state park this weekend. Sunday morning, time to go to the dump station.
Another TT pulled in just in front of us so I took the next lane over.
A couple of red flags went off in my head:
1. Awning had been trashed by an afternoon storm. Could happen to any of us so I didn't think much about it.
2. Temporary tags on the TT. . .from the date on the tag, this had to be their first trip in their new to them TT.

As I proceed to dump, I hear a gushing sound behind me. Turn around to see sewage spewing out of the trailer onto the ground.

No cursing, and really not even too shaken up by it. The couple got it stopped, got the hose connected, and proceeded to dump and clean up.

I did hear the wife say to husband "You mean they didn't have the valve closed????". To which he replied "No, and I don't think the tank was emptied either. . ."

Unfortunate for them, but they seemed to handle it in stride and I think they seemed like the kind of people who will have a good laugh about it someday soon.

Lesson to me: don't get so freaking agitated when things don't go exactly as planned. Life is too short.
