Blue bird bus converted to a camper. The brown door is their main door and you can open only the top.

The third picture is of a camper that must have left their awning out during the storm we had overnight, it ripped off an arm on it. Click image for larger version

Well Ive noticed those on golf carts occasionally but never on an RV. Might be more useful if RV were in a storage lot I guess.

On our last trip, guy parked a small Airstream next to us in San Antonio and put one of these on.

It at least makes more sense on a trailer. Especially since most trailer hitch locks are more superficial than effective. I agree though, probably not needed in an actual RV park, but would be justified in a storage lot.

Correct. This just seems like a waste of money to me. He is in an RV resort with other fellow RVírs at $70 bucks a night. He had to have just bought it. That was the first thing he put on when he was setting up.

I can see using one of these if you have a boat trailer or a cargo trailer that you donít want stolen, but on a Motorhome? Thatís just stupid.

Maybe the park owner put the "boot" on the tire because MH owner has overstayed and owes money for extra nights.

Is that just PVC pipe and nylon screen? Our cat wants to be outside pretty bad but isnít leash trained.

I tried the leash but then he hid from me for a day or two.

Sigh, I'm days away from owning a pair of kittens. Don't want to give up RVing and wouldn't mind giving them some "outside" time. This might very well be in my future.

Waste of money huh? Oh sure.
This from a guy who has luggage compartment doors in his Berk that are big enough to carry his old Dynamax as a spare unit.

Yes, it appears to be PVC, nylon hail screen, zip ties, some wood/plastic slats, maybe a carpet square or two and for the "WIN" a big tote for an outdoor litter.box.

Things you see in an RV Park

Thatís quite a long Airstream, but more importantly an unusual towing vehicle. That thing has storage compartments in every direction. The side you canít see is just like the one you can see. More compartments in the back including a large center one with what looks like a roll-top desk type cover. It must hold a ton of ďstuffĒ! P.S.: itís an Isuzu NPR with what appears to be a utility service type upfit. Click image for larger version
