That motorhome chassis has dools… don’t see the problem.

As for the “other extreme” … that Peterbilt has 4 sets of dools…so no problem.

Although still interested in RV forums I am glad I no longer have the TT. Too much weird c going on everywhere for sometime now including campgrounds and RV parks. I never saw anything like that in my many years of RVing.

I still do a lot of fun camping and fishing in the PNW during off season craziness. Cheers

Except that is cool and overkill/overbuilt.
The 5th wheel pulling cousin Eddy moho combo is just a redneck hack that unless re-powered with a tuned up diesel, about useless/impractical to travel anywhere significant with.

That appears to be the remains of an old class A gasser rig that’s had the rear ten feet or so of the house chopped off, leaving the frame and the two axles as a platform for a fifth wheel hitch.

I sort of recognize the front of it. Maybe a late 80’s Pace Arrow?

And is that paint overspray on the windows and trim?

Interesting, to say the least.

Yes, and it moved today, engine is pretty weak, took two passes to get up the first hill, and barley made the second, only because it had a decent flat before the hill to get some momentum.

Yeowza. That’s an even rougher conversion than it looked like in the first pic.

Yes, that’s overspray around the edges. It kinda softens the abrupt changes of materials, don’t you think?

I wonder what the heavy cord going up the back corner is for? Could that be AC power for the roof air? Maybe when they chopped the end of the house off, they discovered the air-con don’t work no more [emoticon]

Speaking of the roof, something (not good) has been done up there. It looks very thick, and lumpy like it has a few hundred pounds of liquid roof built up on it and the air conditioner cover. And there’s a very wide gap above the driver side “A” pillar. That probably leaks a little when it’s raining.

I see air horns, a spot light, and an amber warning light on top, so maybe there’s more to this rig than meets the eye. Zombie Apocalypse Mobile Command Center???
