I just found out there is one about 30 miles from me!

The one on the Outer Banks is no longer in use, sets along the road with images of aliens in the windows.

So if I understand correctly, you first saw pics of a Futuro House in Playboy. Finally, someone who admits looking at the pictures in Playboy.

Me? I read it for the interviews. I recall Jimmy Carter saying he had "lusted in his heart..." Boy, that was a different lifetime.

I couldn't resist. Here I am the big rig. The other one is a phone or power company rig. Looks similar to a Little JoeClick image for larger version

The Futuro House; perhaps one of the truest fiberglass "eggs"?

This was our first trailer, a teardrop. Not a molded fiberglass, but it's what I've got here.

When we checked in, our host rushed to our space and stood there making a lot of arcane hand signals so I could squeeze it in there.

With my backing up skills, I'd be all caddy wampus in there.

I don't have any pictures of our Scamp alongside big rigs, and on further reflection, I realized it's because we have never been around any. I don't think we've ever pulled into a freeway rest area, and we've never camped in one of those lined-up-like-a-trailer-park places.

The kinds of en route stops we like to make usually involve figuring out how to shoehorn our rig into regular parking spaces where no trailer parking is available. I have parallel parked on the street, and once I squeezed into a single end parking space along a curb in a packed In-N-Out Burger joint. I have appreciated all the places we have been able to get in and out of that would be completely off limits to the big guys.

For camping we choose spacious, widely-separated, no-hook-up sites with more tents and tent trailers than giant motorhomes and fivers. Wouldn't want the Scamp to get an inferiority complex!

I do have a favorite picture that fits the theme of this thread, though. It's not mine, but I recalled having seen it in the registry of member Mike L. I hope I'm not infringing by reposting it here:

It can be just a bigger travel trailer or RV, but I do love that photo you posted!
