So sad - Vinyl windows in a 56?

This is the 2nd time I've seen it. Last time it was an Airstream, and even worse.

This RV lot put a bunch of vinyl windows onto a Spartan. And basically said screw you to the "purists". Apparently they've gotten a lot of feedback, so don't bother letting them know. Akin to putting the Mike Tyson tatoo on Beyonce's face.

I guess they have rednecks in Oregon too.

Aren't the windows on an RV supposed to be a different kind of glass than what is used on a house (e.g. vinyl windows)?

Doesn't offend me. It's better than sending it to the recycler as scrap.

The owner of any RV has the property rights to change it any way they want. If they like it, it is their to do what they want. Spartans have nice birch plywood inside them, but they are not very good travel trailers.

Hear, hear. I completely agree with your sentiment as I'm sure Airstream purists would come at me with pitch forks and burning effigies for what I have done to my 310 turbo diesel. What! vinyling over the fake Walnut MacTac, sacrilege!

Get over it, it's not yours and you don't have to stay in it.

Don't buy new, recycle and make it your own. Power to the recyclers!

Bravo
Tony

The big round thing is a hoot. I hope they have decent curtains.
As for what they did, I'm pretty ambivalent (it's their trailer, after all), I only wish they had painted the frames to match.

I never understood how people who would be aghast if you used some of the classic derogatory terms to describe gays, jews, mexicans, women, blacks and other groups seem to have No qualms about using the term redneck.
Why is that?

Rednecks are not a protected class....I am probably often described as a redneck.

Sorry I'm a Canadian expat Brit; I allways thought the term "redneck" was a term of endearment and rednecks were proud to be called rednecks. No?

Cheers
Tony

I don't think there is a clear definition of redneck. You just usually know one when you see one. I think there is are certain levels or classes of redneck. . I think most trailer trash are rednecks, however most rednecks aren't trailer trash.

Better watch out--y'all may be getting cease-and-desist letters for trademark violation!

As for the subject of the original post--the trailer is up for sale. I suspect the owner is finding some of the "improvements" have negative resale value. Doesn't matter to me one way or the other.

As someone born deep in the South, redneck is only a mildly derogatory term meaning someone who tends to do just enough to get by, and nothing more.

Though I thought it was in poor taste, I also wondered about that big round hole. I think Spartans still somewhat maintained something like a monocoque design. I wonder if the lack of structure in that big hole would break that trailer on a big bounce down the highway.
