This thing was mammoth. I posted it to my LearnToRV FB page and someone pointed out that it even has an extra axle added back there.

They painted it to match the TT, nice touch.
I would have been knocking and inquiring. [emoticon]

If I had a lick of time, I would have. First time I saw it was check-out morning and I was headed for fuel before finishing up our pack up. Second time I saw it, we were literally rolling out.

My first thought was I bet there's a generator in there. Then I noticed the vents on the right side cover which seem to lend credence to that thought.

oops I just noticed your title said a generator rack. [emoticon]

No worries. I'm still amazed at the extra axle back there. How do those tires not get scrubbed off during turns?

That rear axle may just be add on swivel wheels! I know they make them for universal applications.

Maybe. And I wish I had noticed it while I was still at the campground- but it looks like there's an axle tube between them. Not sure how they could swivel then?

Any guess as to its purpose? A medical requirement? Business?
A walk-in Beer Cooler?

Ya, I looked again and it looks like a solid axle like a snowmobile trailer would have. The scrub on that would be ridiculous. Not to mention the weight put on the axle and springs when it goes up a driveway. That could certainly do some damage!

I seen at one campground where someone extended the rear frame of a TT to put a golf cart on sideways! It looked li,enthey moved the front axle to behind the rear axle to offset the weight difference. I wish I would've gotten so,e pictures.
