A Good Example of a Bad Example or How Many Wrong Things Can You Spot.

A friend took this photo in Florida the other day. Just before he took the photo, the owner opened the door and dumped the dish water on the ground. (You can see the water by the door.)

New floor plan. An outhouse on a class C makes for extra room inside.......with a satellite dome to boot.

Looks like he's a little light on the front axle!

That part about being light on the front axle is very interesting. Obviously, the weight is in that big box that is somehow lashed on the back but I cannot figure out how it stays on. Unless he has some kind of a custom frame that is welded to the vehicle frame to bear that much weight, I cannot imagine how he is doing it. I would also think that, even if the base is strong enough, there is nothing structurally sound enough in the back of that RV to fasten into to keep that box from blowing off the back and onto the toad as soon as he gets that monstrosity above 40mph.

My friend said it was a plastic storage shed sitting on frame extensions. Note the pod on the roof with other stuff and the pod on the toad.

I've driven ambulances on the Ford E450 chassis and they are notorious for a tendency to wander if they are loaded too heavy on the tail....man, wonder how he steers that thing??

Ignorance is curable....stupid is permanent.

We had a 1999 31' Minnie Winnie on the E450 chassis. When we first got it, driving was not fun. We added air springs front and rear first, then Bilstein shocks (front and rear) and then HD anti-roll bars with urethane bushings front and rear. Improvements were about 20% air springs, 40% shocks and 40% anti-roll bars. Drove like a dream after the mods.

That big box on the e450 chassis is just too much and the suspension needs to be beefed up.

Bur you still had to watch not getting to heavy behind the axle and unloading the front axle.

How right you guys are. That thing was a bear to drive. My RV dealer said I would be ok with this rig. Not. I traded it and got a class A and also got rid of the out house. I also told my MIL that it was not cool to throw the dishwater out the front door. We are cool now and the Class A steers much better. LOL
