Why the geez?... My mission with the post wasn't to fool anyone with optical illusions of camera angles nor show my ineptness at being able to hold a camera/phone level. Obviously you couldn't take it as such.

If you look at the photo from the rear, there is a wooden fence around the breaker box for that row of sites. The fence boards are vertical. The slide on the R/V in question is nowhere near parallel with the boards and my entire reason for including that shot. There's also a permanent building in the background you could have referenced if you chose to.

It seems the link for the front shot no longer works, I'll try to repost.

Something I hadn't thought of... you could be right.

Maybe the owners of the RV camp purposely erected the wooden fence on a slant to make owners of adjoining trailers dizzy.

Maybe the un-levelness gives the the correct angle of the sun to reflect the reflux?

You’d be surprised at what people blame on spell check as if spell check altered a word AFTER they hit submit.

Or possibly dropped off too much, I was somewhere that I needed to use a platform step to set the legs on as the legs would not reach the ground.

My steps are a weird height, Factory fold out was a two step that seemed really high and were not the same height between the two. Replaced it with a 3 step fold in the door set up but it barely works on level ground. I use a couple of 2x12 to raise the trailer even on flat ground to make sure the door will close. However, I raise both sides equally.

Maybe his flux capacitor needs to be at an angle in order to alleviate the acid reflux.

I do it all the time because I rarely proof read and I use Swype to 'type' so I don't always get the word I wanted but the one the phone thinks I wanted

I wonder if they (and their off kilter neighbor) are hoping on opening a tourist attraction? Something like this:

Quite possible!
We have some places like that here in PA.
Gravity Hill, where you drive halfway up the hill, put your vehicle in neutral and it will roll UPHILL!

I think DougW hit the nail on the head though with the steps/door wouldn't open idea.

They've moved to what the park refers to as a luxury site this morning with a blacktop pad and paver patio.

The R/V is level now.
I'll have to try and get a photo. (or maybe not!)

I was wondering if maybe the inside of their trailer was built that far off level from the frame, and they were level on the inside!

Neither camper in original picture took in consideration the effect of the slide when out on being level. It’s level before slide is in but dips due to slide out. My brother has Three slides and he says he has to level with one bubble up to account for dip once the slide is out.
