Oh, I forgot to mention that the trailer was still hooked up to the truck.

It was a single guy and it looked like he parked the high tire on a little hill. I sure as heck wouldn't be able to keep my trailer like that, I'm not happy if it isn't level.

Maybe he borrowed it?

I'm probably the odd man out here, but I kind of like it. I mean, the shade is not really my favorite, but I like the idea of something other than TAN. I feel like campers and RV's have been stuck in the 70's and 80's for quite some time now. Those God awful swirls and flares they insist on incorporating into the graphics of most every unit. I do like the newer white/grey color schemes, but they still insist on adding ridiculous graphics every time. Don't even get me started on what they do to the interiors of these things. I know they don't like to spend any money on anything at the manufacturer, but it seems like MAYBE they could hire a designer/stylist with some actual training.

This weekend I saw an older TT with a 10-12" external water filter screwed in directly to the inlet on the side of the unit with the hose connected straight out from the end of it. So much leverage on that fitting.

And it was not leaking one bit. Quite surprised actually.

Surprisingly, he doesn't have a power take-off shaft so he can have 6wd when towing.

I use those gamco filters. I connect to my inlet diverter valve with a brass 90 fitting. The flange of the 90 degree elbow rests on the docking station housing with zero weight or deflection of the diverter valve.

Well......if thatís now a camper unit, he better not light up those red lights all over the exterior. Thatís definitely illegal no matter where you live.

He might even get in trouble for looking too much like real emergency vehicle.

Just sayiní

Saw one of those on the way home from work yesterday. Graphics on the side said "Dr Drywall" for all your emergency Drywall Needs.

On the other hand, he might be quite popular with the “leave your outside lights on all night” folks.

Might depend on the state. Some states used to prohibit "display or use" of certain color lights, meaning you couldn't have a red or blue lens showing whether it was lit or not. I know CT and ME had that language. CT volunteer firefighters had to put covers over their blue lights when traveling in ME (which uses red for volunteers) and vice versa. I got stopped in ME for this. In fact, there were companies that sold custom light covers for exactly that reason. Not sure if those statutes are still on the books, but most modern LED lights have clear lenses regardless of whatever color they display when illuminated, so it's becoming a moot point.

Antique/collector emergency vehicles are typically exempt from the colored light laws as long as the lights aren't used while traveling on a public road.
