Not one, but two!

Saw not one but two Bigfoot truck campers yesterday! First was a larger model on a silver Dodge heading south on AZ-73 through Whiteriver, AZ (my home town ). The second was a smaller unit on a green Chevy(?) in Pinetop, AZ. This is our off season for tourists, so seeing two in the space of an hour was unusual.

Not a trailer; Not even a truck.

Saw a small old econo car with a stack of pallets on it's top.
In a certain area I've seen an old S-10 type pickup hauling a
large stack of pallets. I'm wondering if this is the same person
that their pickup finally quit on them. I had my camera but
couldn't get it out soon enough. Otherwise I would have posted
a thread all it's own about it.

Just imagine a small car with somewhere between 10 to 15 feet
of pallets on it's top. I watched it in my rear view mirror expecting
it to lay over in the middle of the road. This is no joke. I also
wondered what he was going to do if the fuzz ever happened to see
him. Next time I will call the police about this myself.

Whenever I pass through there again I will keep alert to get you a picture if I can. Even this redneck couldn't believe his eyes.

Had to EDIT: This was in Arkansas; not Oklahoma.

Perhaps we should keep an eye on the redneck humor sites - it may show up as a redneck humor sight!

Could it be?
Surely not.

Wood for the campfire ? I used to get oak pallets from work but they went through the fireplace at home.

That's an idea alright.
I noticed that one fella using a station wagon
so he can carry two stacks. Must be going off grid.

Saw two this weekend, which is rare in Utah! Friday afternoon was a 13' scamp headed south on I-15 near Draper. Today we saw a 16' scamp with Oregon plates pulled by a silver (I think I'm remembering correctly) Honda truck.

Saw a 16' Scamp in an RV storage lot in the north end of Hudsonville, MI. While this isn't the open road, it does mean that there is a fellow Scamp owner somewhere nearby as this facility is only blocks from my home. I'm not alone...

I was just down to Fort Casey giving away some firewood. It is a small campground but there were 2 Escapes, a Casita, and a Scamp there. Talked briefly to the Capita owners.

2009 Casita FD - Sold

Just drove I-40 from AZ to VA. I saw a 13 ft. Boler as well as 4 Casitas in the last four days. A sticky was blown over and destroyed in AR. on the freeway, nobody hurt to bad from what I heard. Cross winds were very bad, gusts to 50 kts. All the sticky people and truck camper people I talked to at the Flying J were staying put until the wind came down. I had to drive carefully but never felt like the trailer was out of control. The rounded corners I'm sure makes these molded trailers a lot better in windy conditions.
