I think I got it. And I think it wasn't from you after all.
Tyler 6357 said it was on page 113. On that page was a picture posted by dhfinc with the caption "This is a pic of my DW's early camping experience". And that was referred to by borderboardr when he said "That was when camping was CAMPING!"
Anyhow, it wasn't what I expected. Between 65 and 50 years ago I camped - and that really was when camping was CAMPING. That was when I went camping in the High Sierra for weeks at a time with all of my camping equipment and food on my back, and mostly at elevations between 8000 feet and 12000 feet above sea level. But now I am no longer capable of comfortably and easily camping the REAL way. Now I find that the closest I can get to that enjoyment and freedom is camping in a motorhome. And to think that I used to denigrate RVs. At those young years I hadn't learned to appreciate the fact that even I would get beyond the backpacking years. The intolerance of youth.

This may have been posted before. A friend sent it to me as a joke because he knew I have been searching for a DP motor home for some time. I found the tandem front axle interesting.

I believe that the 2 front axles are articulated and turn together. GM put them on some rigs in the 70's

This is the only bus that I've seen that needs four "Watch Your Step" signs inside.

That set up (which is pretty complicated) is not uncommon on heavy construction vehicles, such as concrete pumpers.

Man o Man I hate the "HOOK"
Been there got the "T" shirt several times.
Got to where I had to build a slide out in my basement to hold the top box of my Tool Chest. Bought a seperate set of Motorhome specific tools, a few manuals and lots of bailing wire and duct tape.

And woudn't you know it. Once I learned to fix it, it started being more dependable. Guess I finally got all the little things sorted out.
