Seen at the fishing docks in Homer, AK last summer. Owner had pictures posted in window of the burned up hulk he had purchased and then rebuilt, using mostly wood.

I've seen the same rig (it has to be) at Melvern Lake (Eisenhour State Park). If I see it again this fall, I'll grab a picture!

Well......it’ll probably never rust......but it could suffer Dutch Elm disease someday.

Sunseeker, I'm out at Clinton all the time. I volunteer out there and that is one hell of a rig. They stay out there year round and I laugh my ass off every time I drive by it. Next time you're out that way look me up, I'm in campground one just north of the camp host in a Cedar Creek

We couldn’t resist - we masked up ‘Muk-Luk’ at our campsite here in the UP of Michigan.
Awesome reactions

Dblr, roger. This is the first time in 41 years that we haven’t taken a trip with a trailer that belonged to us. We had to cancel 2 reservations because of the COVID. We were supposed to be out west for the summer and then another trip in September. Have fun and stay safe.

Looks like he can drop the hatches in front and roll out the canons.

This was in the site next to us when we set up at Lake Shetek State Park at Currie, MN. He started it this morning to hook up. I think most the other campers were watching when we heard the power. Then we heard the air brakes. Everyone was watching then.Click image for larger version

Palazzo Diesel pusher with Case license plate on front, 10K GVW Sure Track car hauler with a full on 4x4 crew cab F-150 Lariat and Case license plate on the front. I'm guessing a mega farmer from the Midwest who made his fortune driving a Case tractor.Attachment 236954Click image for larger version

Things you see in an RV Park

Well I wish him luck!!! I owned a Palazzo for a couple yr. Just a POS.
Motor & transmission & frame just fine. As for the rest of it THOR just threw some junk on top of the frame!!

Now the Case part is just fine. And the Ford part ok too.

I saw a Prevost with the toad driven behind pull out of our cg Sunday morning. It was the first I've ever seen in the cg. That thing was huge, he had to swing it side to side to clear the trees where other class A's don't have a problem.

Not an RV park but a Forest Service campground.
