Theres a runt amongs us

I wish I could find my camera.
Across from us are 6 very big 5th wheels, naturaly with massive pickups.
Right in the middle is a 15 foot Class C on a Toyota chassie.
Some of the truck tires are as big as the RUNT.
But I'll bet he's happy, I'm sure his is paid for.

And my philosophy is, "It doesn't mater what you camp in, you will have just as much fun."

Size or age does not really matter as long as you are happy and having fun. Big does not equate to happiness for everyone.

I always get a kick out of it when we come out of the store to get in the f350 crewcab dually and parked next to us is a short cab Ford Ranger. Looks like a cow and her calf.

I'll bet the runt burns about half the fuel of the "Big Guy's". LOL

ooh, nice little MGB Roadster - about a 1982 by the looks of her. Prefer the chrome bumper model myself but not sure if they ever made it across the pond due to the 5mph impact test.

Used to work on friends MGBs and MGCs and a couple of MGB V8s - happy days. I had a Jensen Healey just to be different

An old girl friend of mine has a Toyota Chassis C Class and she has a great time with it. My DW and I are trying to get her to come out to visit us so we can return the hospitality she gave us last spring.

Her's is paid in full and enjoyed immensely by her and her beau.

Yeah, that's a late model MGB for sure. I had an Austin Healey "frogeye" Sprite in the UK back in the 60's but my all time dream car is still a '68 Jaguar E Type drophead coupe, canary yellow of course!

The MGB is a 75, the GT in my avatar is a Chrome Bumper 74. The Roadster lives in WA the GT in TX.

Those Toyota's are tough little trucks...4 cylinder 20R or 22R engine.

Still see a lot of them on the road.
