Saw this at a rest area in Oregon yesterday. Never saw the owner, hopefully he went to get a different truck...

Bet the steering gets a little squirrely when he goes over a bump. Back when I didn't know any better I loaded a station wagon up with concrete blocks. First corner I came to I turned but the station wagon kept going straight.

He didn't even took a hint, his trailer already got a serious dent infront.

But one thing you can concede, he got the dough. His RV puller is an Escalade.

Trailer is nose down, Escalade is nose up, sagging in the rear. I bet that rig is squirrely at speeds above, oh, 15 miles an hour.

He’s only going to campsites close to home. So it’s OK, right?
