Unofficial “you gotta be kidding me” thread

Summer is upon us and many are hitting the road on their camping vacations. This is when I see a major increase in things that make me think, “you gotta be kidding me”. So I thought I would start a thread about just that. Stuff you see out there, camping related, that you can’t believe.

Yesterday I saw a class A pull out of the RV park with his snap on window shades still attached to all the windows except the front. Seriously?

Would love to hear what others see out there.

Jake

Coming over the Cumberland Gap two Winters ago, in a snow storm, came up behind a unit with the slides extended.

Don't know what he was thinking but he was half on the shoulder with his all flashers blinking going about 30 mph.

Hope he made it OK.

Probably a Frontier pilot with his first RV and thought they were flaps.

I suspect that his slide was jammed or broke and he was trying to get to a repair shop..

I can't believe all the beautiful high dollar rigs with drivers that have no clue how to back up. Seems like all the rednecks can handle it just fine lol.

We were in Gilroy, Ca at a rv park and a MH pulls in with a toad. I bet there was a 35-40% drop on the tow bar from the MH to the car. Hope he doesn’t need to stop fast.

Many....Many...years ago I attended a family reunion in South Dakota at a KOA near Mt Rushmore. One day this very pretty Prevost towing a, then new, 1994ish Ford F150. KOA had given him a pull through spot, but failed to mention the access road was tight and that the RV "pad" was about 3-4" lower than the grassy area to either side. He went a little wide turning into his spot and put the right front tire into the grass and sunk the tire up to the body in the soft ground.


His bone-head move was to fire up the F150 and he and his wife tried to use the F150 on its tow bar to "assist" the Prevost to pull or push it out of its predicament. Another camper managed to get their attention before they were able to cause themselves too much damage

I'm in a 150-site rv park, essentially a paved pasture, occupied by about five of us and a guy managed to bump into the back of my MH!

Last June at the Fathers Day Bluegrass Festival in Grass Valley, CA. We'd had a wet winter and much of the camping area hadn't fully dried up. The festival had sold assigned campsites to those who needed hookups. I watched them lead 3 motorhomes into sites that were WAY too muddy for a motorhome! As we watched them being pulled out, we were wondering who was dumber, the staff that was directing them to the sites or the drivers who continued when there was standing water visible through the grass in front of them!


After all that, it was a very enjoyable festival!
