Serious question - why are the door and the awning on the wrong side?

Maybe they are left handed? Or in the southern hemisphere?

More than likely they live in Australia, and like living on the edge! LOL

JAYCO motorhomes and trailers have been built in Australia since 1975. I never knew that until today!

...

For a while one time, we were without a camper, so I borrowed a 5vr. I had to take the wheels off one side to level side-to-side, because a darn sand dune had recently formed clear across the pad.

It took all the regular blocking just to make steps up the other side to enter. I had reserved all the spots and, of course, had to let other family avoid this snafu.

Best way to look for rips on the under belly liner, and lots of room to work.

My guess is that the photo is reversed. (Occamís Razor)

My serious question: How did he get it jacked up enough to even do that???

I had to do something similar twice in the past. NOT as extreme, but, both times took extending tongue jack as far as possible, resetting using blocks, and jacking again. Not far from Virginia either time, Oaklevel. Once at Lake Gaston and once at Muddy Run in southern PA.
The Muddy Run occasion was a 5th, the Lake Gaston was a TT. I bought X chocks for the wheels, and assured the stabilizers were extended. Also advised wife, no sudden moves or exercising inside. Oh, and the 5th got a tripod stabilizer.
I have started looking for brake backing plates with the parking brake linkage for when the brakes have to be replaced.

If it was reversed the lettering on the trailer would be backwards. It's probably in Australia or the UK.

In fact, here's the exact model on the Australian Jayco website.

The exact opposite way they got it up there.

It takes some time and patience but basically you have to:

1. jack up the trailer
2.put blocks down under the trailer
3. lower the jack and take it out so that the trailer is resting on the blocks.
4. put blocks under the jack to raise it higher
5. jack up the trailer some more
6. add more blocks under trailer
7. repeat as needed

When I was a kid it was common to lift houses up as much as a full story and then build the "ground floor" under it. That's how people took their small "Pre-War" houses large enough for their "Baby Boom" families. Just jack a foot or two, build cribbing, lower onto cribbing, move jack support up and repeat.

I wonder how his HOA views this? Mine would have a cow.

I especially like what appears to be a chain through the wheels (higher in the front wheel to lower in the rear wheel) to keep the wheels from turning.

Also 'appears' they are watering the tree with grey water... or whatever.

Brilliant!... here... hold my beer!

Not saying that's what's it used for, considering how unsafe it appears....but if it was my mother-in-law, I understand
