This what happens when the hookups are on the wrong side and a long way away. Hope they don't need to get out in a hurry.

Can't tell from the relatively closeup shot you took, but it looks to me like the hookups are where they're supposed to be, but that they made a conscious decision to pull in the wrong way. They may have been with another camper and wanted them to face each other?

Can't see it. Looks like if he'd backed into the site he's in, as you'd expect, he'd be set up properly for the pedestal that we can see.

I was assuming the table is on a gravel area where it's supposed to be. (It looked to me like the gravel under the table is a finer size than the gravel under the TT.)

That's what it looks like to me too. They're also still hitched up. Maybe they aren't comfortable backing up a trailer?

Looks to me like he drove in head first, TV is in the bushes, and the picnic table belongs to the site where the photographer is standing. I would have to actually see the parks layout to be sure though.

Nope, the table belongs to their campsite. She, yes a female, is very adapt at backing up the RV. The campsite just set up backward. They are camping at New River State
Park in NC.

#1101, If it was me; I would have moved the picnic table and backed in there ... sure, utilities would still be on the wrong side, but my TV would be free. I doubt my rig would allow me to pull in head first. Or back into where the hybrid is and walk around to the picnic table. Anything but how they did it.

There was a rally here. Haven't seen many of this style. Most had GMC on there grills.

Is that 4, 5 or 6 air conditioners?!

Thoughts the same thing. I know one had four I believe. The other looked like storage bins but I am not familiar with those RVs. The first ones I ever seen that would run. Don't know if I got picture but one had seven things on top with no slide outs. Curious but not nosey enough to go over after working 70 hours that week.

I know someone who has one. It's a 100 mph plus RV.... and built like a tank. All aluminum riveted skin and a full ladder frame. All air ride (4 corners) Heavy duty brakes and everything inside to pleas a king..or queen.

It's the forerunner to a Prevost.

I have an F250 with the camper package. I scale out at 1,000 lbs under front GAWR. My front GAWR is 5,200 lbs and I weigh 4,240 lbs.

Yup. The pedestal they are plugged into is right where it is supposed to be. Back in and it is right there.

The picnic table is sitting in the next door spot.

Campers move things around and don't put them back. The portable table may be in the wrong spot... which is easy to fix, but the pedestal is in the right spot.

I have to agree. Every time I go back and look I find something else. Like a tool box on the roof.
There is a lot going on there.
