That guy has a nice sweater. The narrators script is interesting, " ...even a moron, mechanically speaking, can fix it up in a matter of minutes...". He don't know me very well do he? I'd have that camper in eight feet of water pronto!

Some down right snazzy socks too. Only took two kicks to fire up the scooter too. Notice how his job was to hold the side up while she snapped it all in place?

Thank heaven for those retractable legs to "Prevent it from rolling inadvertently out to sea in the middle of the night".
The way it's raining around here today it's a distinct possibility for me !!

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Amazing some of those big houses on wheels that folks tow around to go " camping" . A/C , Showers , Indoor Loo , Sat TV , etc.

If I wanted to tent it , I'd rather buy one of these , and a queen sized air mattress , ETA a good tarp that covers the roof of the truck and the tent to keep snow and rain at bay:

when I had a full sized van I went camping in it. the first one I had a ford econoline E150 with no windows in the rear. I went and got the longest bench seat I could find and placed it side seating in the van, I would sleep on it. and it left plenty of room for my Honda xl125. later econoline vans were club wagons with windows in the back, using masking tape to hold some window screen to the windows provided some much needed air and kept the bugs out

This is how we camp. Folks in that house on wheels behind our Scamp wondered how we could sleep in it.

And we think we need big trucks...-img_2892.jpg

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Yikes!

Let's estimate some weights: 200 lbs. of scooter, 100 lbs. of sidecar, 350 lbs. of trailer, 75 lbs. of boat, 2 passengers @ 150 lbs. each, and a child @ 75 lbs. Total = 1,100 lbs. being pulled by what... an 8 HP engine max?

Ya wouldn't get me riding that rig around on a public road!

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.
