Where was this. Need to check and see if my brother was in the vicinity. He can't back his 5er to save his life

The Rover is a wanna be and the Jeep was for real.

The great machine in these photos was obviously a cool dirt machine. Mad Max style.

I only know I need one....
The problem with the Jeep is the driver would be completely under water if taken to it designed limits!

I'm assuming his insurance will cover the campground damage, as well as his camper's damage. Hope so.

The last campground I was at posted on their info sheet you receive at check in the cost of replacing the power pedestal along with the cost to replace the water hydrant. It may have been on the sheet in the past, but this was in bold lettering. Never really thought about it, but I guess it could be a problem.

Toyota T-100 pulling a triple axle 5th Wheel...no problem...except every time he tried to stop, the truck locked it's front brakes up. In the first picture he is in the process of running a red light because the trailer pushed him right out into the intersection when he tried to stop. It didn't look like he had any trailer brake activity at all. I saw him several times because we were taking different roads but headed in the same general direction.

Priceless... The first pic shows the left butt end of the TV diving down on a right hand turn and the second shows no tire clearance in the fenders. Very well thought out plan that fella had. LOL...

I have a brother in law who thinks he an expert at backing his travel trailer into any site. I mean any site. It's always the same routing. He swings out away from the site but never swings in towards it first. Then he puts it in revers and guns it to show everyone how he can get in there with just one shot. Never happens. He always gets crooked beyond recognition and everybody starts telling him what to do from all sides so by the time he hears three people talking he is even more crooked. I just site back and watch.

Funny thing is though.......there this place called Amazon where you can pretty much buy anything you want. I found a bullhorn with a battery operated megaphone. I always make sure we are there before him and as soon as he pulls in, out comes the bullhorn. "Everybody gather around, Jim's gonna back in with only one try watch carefully or you'll miss it and it just goes on and on until he finally can't take it anymore and gets out of his truck and wraps the bullhorn around my neck. But it is a lot of fun and he has tagged a couple of pedestals in his day
