Yea, but it is certified by the National Electric Code and the RV manufacturer's association rules?

Looks like they pulled the mold off of a 50's Airstream and didn't bother to cover the rivets either.

All stories aside, there are saveral Chinese FGRV manufacturers that have tried to get into the U.S. and more are out there.

The tires are what we left behind in WWII.

I remember when I was a kid, seemed like all cheap toys came from Japan.
I liked to tear things apart to see how they worked. My dad (WWII vet) bought
me a cowboy six-shooter that clicked when you pulled the trigger. I tore it apart
and found it was a Schiltz beer can on the inside. They turned it inside out and
painted the inside of the can to look like a revolver. I thought it was funny at
the time.

As soon as it arives in the US they can add the trailer hitch and rebadge it made in the usa. Of course then it would cost more. Without the hitch it will break loose and end up in a tree.

Guess we all got a dry sense of humor.
Yep, knew it was a tree ornament.
But it still triggered the memory banks.

[QUOTE=carlkeigley;387615]The tires are what we left behind in WWII.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Many have heard the story about how the Soviet Union kept three B-29's that made forced landings in Vladivistok just before the end of WWII.* They tore one apart and duplicated it rivet for rivet for their first heavy bomber, the B-4. However, they didn't have the ability to make the special heavy duty aircraft tires the main landing gear needed soooo, to solve that problem, they had their peeps in the U.S. buy up new B-29 tires at war surplus sales. We didn't know a thing about them until they were flying.
(*) The story recently ran on the Military History channel
