He also put bike racks on the back bumper. That's gonna cause problems, from what I read.

Looks like he strengthened the frame, so he'll probably be okay.

Saw two traveling together yesterday. They were going east bound on 50 Hwy entering Jefferson City Missouri. The AS in front was an older model limited. The one following was a 70's model.

On a trailer for the upcoming season of "Stuck with Hackett" on the Science Channel, there's the remains of what's probably a late '50s trailer. They only showed a partial view of the side. I'm guessing it's over 25'. It has a door-within-a-door with a stack of 2 jalousies ahead of it, and a long rectangular window opening about 6' aft of the door.

If you haven't seen the show or a trailer, it's about this guy who uses trash to set up rube-goldberg "conveniences" saying that he can recreate the accomplishments of modern mankind with the junk that would be left over after an apocalypse.

I would just like to post a pic of a Safari I saw in Colorado while on vacation! I know it will offend some purists but still pretty cool!! Maybe someone can identify the owner as a Forum member.

Yeah that was my first thought when I saw it too. Especially because I didn't see an obvious step system in my quick glance. However, that also acts as a really good security system.

I can't help but wander what the tow vehicle might look like. I think it is OK to express yourself on the outside as well. They did a good job - it looks well done.

Saw a newer model Airstream in a sale lot on the 231/431 bypass in Fayetteville, TN, on 8/9/11. Didn't have time to stop, might go back to Indy by that route.
