That's pretty funny. I just picture them bouncing off of things. I can't imagine driving a set up like that. We have been in and out of many parking lots that would definetly take out that hitch set-up. They need to tow a panel truck instead of a jeep.

I think I would give up the flower pots and take up bonsai.

Why of course, he must touch it everytime he wraps the bungee cords around it to secure the kitchen sink (or whatever that is) before waddling off into the sunset....... Larry

Wow! Can you imagine if just one of his bungie cords break? I'd hate to be behind him!

Just when you think you've seen it all, you find out you really haven't!!! I've never camped at Morro Bay SP, but familiar with the area. There's got to be a boat and golf clubs in there somewhere.

What's even more fascinating is that Argosy motorhome only has a 2000 lb towing limit!

Then it should be okay, because it looks like they're PUSHING at least half the load with stuff up front (wonder if there's a lil wheel under all that mess like on the rear?)

From a totally practical standpoint, what about the S-A-F-E-T-Y issue(s) this rig presents. I find NO humor in the mental picture(s) of the damage the "stuff" on the front of the motorhome WILL do to an unsuspecting motorist/motorcyclist. Surely this setup cannot be legal in all 50 states - can it?

Never mind being BEHIND this dump, we'd all better hope we're never IN FRONT OF HIM when he can't get it wrestled to a STOP!

This actually reminds me of when my stepdad moved us back from Kansas to New Mexico. We actually called this a "Grapes of Wrath" move. I don't think Steinbeck would approve. I've been fortunate enough to not have to ever move like this again. Nor do I wish to ever again.
