Wacky RV includes a chicken coop

There is no end to the variety of recreational vehicles on the road. Take this one, for example. Not only is the paint job unique, but check out what’s on the roof. Yup, an honest-to-goodness chicken coop complete with hens!

So no need to run to the store for your morning omelette! Just climb up on the roof.

Thanks to reader Mary Carlson who sent these photos taken in an Oregon campground several years ago.

I have chickens at home and a few of them are more like pets. Very tame and will set on my arm or I will be working on something in the garage and if I have the door open usually I get a chicken coming to see what I am doing. Although I would not build a coop on top of my camper I did think about taking my one Easter Chickens camping with us but the wife said no. LOL

Love it, I’d rather park next to 10 of these families vs next to the typical 2/3/4 barking dogs RV’er. Is there actually an RV’er out there that doesn’t have barking dogs?

I sometimes see strange campground rules and wonder: “who did what”?
This week I saw that the Indiana State Fairgrounds campground has: “No wind chimes”

All I need is a rooster in the campground sounding off at 4:30 in the morning. We used to raise three legged chickens for the extra drumstick. Don’t know what they taste like as they were so fast we could never catch one.

That is what gives RVers a bad image, park it out of sight and eat eggs the rest of your life but don’t show it in public. Sorry if I offended someone… not really.

Now Bob that’s not fair as we put up with furry pets barking on occasion or some on a more continuous basis. I think I’d rather hear chickens and their quiet at night. What bad image I’ve seen plenty old RVs that look worse than this that were in RV parks and the people owning them were pretty nasty themselves. Being unkept matching an unkept rig. So it appears these chickens aren’t unkept and are better looking.

We’ve seen this bus numerous times here in Oregon. We got to camp across from them a few years ago at a county park near Eugene, OR. They seemed like a nice family and their kids even put on a hula hoop show for us and got us to use their hula hoops. They were much better at it than we were. I haven’t seen them in quite some time but when we do it gives us a smile and pulls up a fond memory of our time as their neighbor. We refer to it as the Chicken Bus.

Seems a bit cruel to travel with those chickens up there. Enclose the box, or bring them in.

Have you ever seen a flatbed semi hauling chickens? They just stack the cages up on the trailers – and down the road they go. In DOT rules, there’s only two things truckers are allowed to ‘lose’ as they go down the road. Fresh water – and chicken feathers.

Looks like there is a plywood hen house associated with the wired end. To get out of the weather . wind.

We have seen this rig twice at Oregon rest stops as well. They often were panhandling. Interesting and unique rig though.
