What a way to travel

A friend set me these photos from an RV forum
RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Honey where did you put the kitchen sink?

Note the wheels under the rear receiver and platform.

Just when you thought you've seen everything. I bet that front rack will make one heck of a speed bump after 3 or 4 dips in the road.

Its not that bad

Heck....they still have plenty of room to add a rack to the top, not to mention side hangers for the surfboards and skis....

Travel is in my blood, adventure is my passport, aluminum is my favorite construction medium, and therefore, an Airstream was my destiny.

How he keeps it from overheating I'll never know. It's gotta be overwieght and I doubt much air gets to the radiator.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

One has to believe that they will be challenged as soon as they hit the road. It's a disaster waiting to happen - and regretably usually that also includes someone else. I'm just very pleased to hear that they are not heading north.

I've seen an SOB MoHo around our area that is similarly reworked with various appendages and they have even added the on top rack. It moves from one street to another for the night. Kind of sad that someone has to live their life like that. I doubt they'd ever even attempt to hit the highway in that one, and it looks bent behind the axles so the wheels on the rear appendage are actually necessary, not just a luxury.
