Steve,
You haven't met Herb nor I but I can assure you that it would be a comical sight to watch to grown men, who when they walk they have to hold out their arms so you can see if they are rolling or waddling.

Knuckle sandwiches would only add to that. Are they made out of bacon?

Open Roaders,

Welcome to the mutated information thread. Save yourself some time and search only this thread and on only posts that I made. They are more mutated and fit nicely on the rainbow.

Knuckle sandwiches? Pig knuckles? That is close to pork hocks, which is right next to bacon.

Bacon sandwiches at 10 paces. A pontoon boat can serve as a ring, and wobbling will make the boat list, and make my video a Youtube viral smash hit.

Prevosts with crews for everyone!

Want fries with that?

May I declare my mutant-ness as well? I took over payments of my parents' 99 Diplomat. It has no dishwasher, no heated floors, no tablet control pad, no power shades, no IFS, no tag axle. I am grateful for all it lacks! I am 37, and full timing in a diesel pusher I couldn't have afforded any other way. Life is good.

After completing a thorough background check - the RVM Membership Committee has determined that you have met the qualifications. You must however affirm that the Journey is the Destination in your next post. With that your membership will be complete and RVM61 is now your official number.

We see that you are a long time lurker and new member and would like to welcome you to iRV2 as well as to the RVMdom - and the best group and thread going.

Everyone let's welcome wingennis - our newest and I suspect quite possibly youngest member at a ripe old age of 37!

RVM2
Steve and Annie

P.S. How about a picture of that rig. You didn't have a new rig show off thread? Ya know what they say - no pictures - didn't happen.

Welcome wingennis and enjoy the rainbow.

You will find, as you read and rejoin, that some (actually most) of the Mutants have bunions as old, if not older than you.

The trip is the destination with this lot and it makes for interesting destination reports to boot.

Again, welcome to the fold.

GRRRRRrrrrr. Venting post here. I took my spouse's car to work today because we had a high wind advisory and I drive through a mountain pass to work. Her car is heavier than my daily driver, the Honda CR-V that we purchased to tow behind the MH. Purchased new in June, it has 4000 miles on it. It was parked in front of my house, on a clear day, and our street is about 75 feet wide. A neighbor lady, 87, driving her land yacht Buick, managed to crash into it. It's completely messed up, and I think the frame may be bent. So my spouse runs outside, and the lady says "I didn't see it. I'm going home. I have to pack. I'm leaving tomorrow on a three month trip...in my motor home."

AAAAAAGGGGGgggggggghhhhhhh.

My brand new baby all crushed to heck and back.

Hi Elizabeth,

Not that it is much consolation but at least no one was hurt, now then if the Honda is not repairable, you could always consider a Jeep, they are rugged enough for any type of weather, and they have 4-wheel drive to boot, and they flat tow real real easy, and well its a Jeep !!!!

I hope your day gets better,

Hey wingennis and the rest of our newest mutants,

Welcome to the rainbow, and if you can make your rainbow meet at Cathrines Landing in Hot Springs this coming April you could attend the first ever Grande Curiosity with some of the other mutants for a fun filled 6 days of merriment and mayhem also do not forget the webpage rvmutants.com there you will find all sorts of information regarding this curious curiosity of mutating mutants ...

Cheers !!!

Or course, you are right. I would feel much worse if she was hurt. Her car is fine except for some front quarter panel damage. She hit where the front driver's door and back drivers door meet, and dented it pretty good. She had to hit it nearly head on to do the damage she did. The dent is at least a foot deep. Neither door will budge.

I don't even really like Hondas much. We bought it to tow 4 down, and it has AWD, but it's not fun to drive. It doesn't have enough horses for starters, and the seats are hard as rocks. We definitely want to tow four down, and this was the best compromise we could come up with. 0% financing, and got a killer deal since I just bought a Honda Civic for my daughter last year when she rolled her Corolla.

Does anyone know if you can tow a Jaguar XF four down?! I may need a new car!

Hey There,

Well side damage is always bad because that is usually the weakest spot on a car, I myself have never sat in a Honda and more than likely couldnt fir with a shoe horn they just arent made for people that are 6'-3" tall, I know they put out good deals on them cause they want to sell them, We were in tow 4 down mode when we found the Jeep, and we knew we wanted to hunt ghost towns, geocache in the desert, and see things you cannot see from the road, so thats how the Jeep won out, and I got a great deal on a used one with low miles.

I dont know if you can tow a Jag 4-down, but if ya can .... .... wouldnt that be fun as well, of course you'd have to give up Jeepin in the desert, and scaring your spouse with water crossings , but climbing rocks and following goat trails is hard to beat ... ...

Cheers !!!!
