You pull into a campground with this:

It was in my campground this weekend. This enterprising Bubba made this rig himself. Quite a good job actually. It's a flatbed, with an 80s Coleman Pop Up strapped on sideways, towed with his big Bubba truck with large Lance camper. The Jeep thingy rides on the flatbed too.

They pulled into the campground yesterday afternoon, unloaded it ALL, popped up the tent trialer, dropped the 4wd and set to camping. The 4wd never left the campground, and the party consisted of.. A man, his wife, a teenage son, and a dog. Thats it!

It started to Hail this morning and they packed it ALL up and left!

Lotta work (and Gas) for that set up!

I didn't have the heart to tell him they make em like this now... He probably did it years ago!

Goodyear and/or Firestone must love these folks...I counted a minimum of 18 tires and spares for all their STUFF....at least four different spares because each rollin' thing has a different size tire/rim.

That wins the award for Most Weird!

We saw a land yacht ("engine pusher?") towing a 13' Boler two summers ago: was it for the dog?

Maybe this has been posted before, but this might qualify, too:

When I see stuff like that, all I can think is...America is utterly doomed!

When I see that, I think what a blessed country we live in. Then, I thank heaven for diversity. (Otherwise, I'm just like him.)

I didn't get as far as the apocalyptic thoughts - I stopped at "Surely, that trailer has a negative nose weight with that Suzuki back there?".
