I love that explanation.

Maybe the cause is simply gravity?

Oh wait, there is no gravity. The earth Sucks.

Trust me, the camper was nowhere close level before any slides were deployed. I watched them pull in/set up.

With that said, I too need to level a HALF bubble off to compensate for my two large slides on one side and only one on the other.

That camper would have been 4-5 ticks of the bubble off.

At the Tampa RV show this week I saw many new motorhomes at least that far off-level with the slides deployed and the jacks up.

One salesperson said he was getting seasick watching one motorhome rock back and forth as people moved around inside.

I've seen that/experienced that too.

Motorhomes often have a higher center of gravity (frame) and the chassis suspension is sprung a bit differently than a trailer.

I have LevelMate Pro in my trailer. 1/2" too low on passenger side makes mine level after pushing the slide out. Then I lower the stabilizers. The trailers in the photo look way more than 1/2" off level to me.

It's not a matter of "can you tow it?" it's more like "do you want to pay for it?"

I took a look for models up for sale used. Highest price I saw was $21k for a "highly modified" unit. Write up on them indicates people seldom sell them used. Common price for 4 units was in the $10k-$12K range. Article I read said there were even full timer owners!
Big issue, if you want a new one, plan on waiting for over a year!

We have an Oliver molded fiberglass trailer on order now and will be towing it with our dually. It'll look funny, but the truck's paid for and the weight police will never bother us!

It's cute but I think you'd get more space with a travel trailer.

Dont have pics but saw someone at Jekyll Island state park riding in their golf cart walking their dog. And at Assateague state park I saw a wild horse turn on the water spigot at the dump station and then drink from it. Talk about adapting to your surrounding.

Maybe they don’t need more space? Haven’t seen the truck yet. For some of us less is more.

Did it turn the water off after it was done?

Maybe management should put an auto-shutoff valve on it with a foot pedal for the horses.

Came into the CG today just to dump. Also they needed fresh water so I let them use an unreserved site to fill up. They were going to use the dump station! They were from MI, a family, a couple of kids, and two dogs.

Skoolies are quite popular in my neck of the woods. They are cheap to obtain as well as maintain. You can get them at DRMO as well as school district spot bid sales. The ones that I've seen are beautiful inside after renovations.

I recently stopped in an RV park that specifically "banned" Schoolies as well as converted cargo trailers, horse trailers, and even converted "box trucks".

Wouldn't let anything in without an RVIA sticker on it.

Can't let the lowlifes in.

Snobbery?
