That is a video everyone should save on their phone, so on those days when you're concerned about break downs and reaching your destination, you can just watch the video and know you'll be okay, he made it!

What's sad is that someone may really be living in that.

Is that the black tank letting loose just before the end of the video? I thought I saw some T.P. at the beginning of that wet streak...

LOL!

That is what my DW thought our 86 King of the Road should have looked like on the way home from purchase.
We Bought as a Fixer UPPER with a known "Soft" rear floor. Once we got it opened up, we were surprised that we didn't look like the MH in the video.

We ended up replacing the back 6' of a 28' 5er, along with the framing on half of the back wall, and the bottom 18" to and including the wheel well on the drivers side. Cost of materials was less than $200. We used that 5er to decide if we wanted to get back into RVing.

Some duct tape and a few motorcycle straps would have that back in shape fast!

Better get to a dealer for a good trade value NOW before it loses any more value [emoticon]
