This week’s installment of weird, wacky RVs

Here’s this week’s amazing display of some of the weirdest, wackiest RVs ever created.

Is it an RV or boat? Maybe a houseboat. But it has wheels, too. This is definitely unique and we think one of a kind. If you know anything about it, please let us know.

Keep your eyes open for this RV (or whatever it is) around Cody, Wyoming. We have a strong feeling this one-of-a-kind vehicle from yesteryear isn’t making its way around America these days.

This would have been a totally rad setup to take cruisin’ on Sunset Strip back in the days when cool guys like the Fonz were parading up and down Main Streets across America in their hot rods trying to pick up babes. This would have been perfect for a rolling party! Hey, maybe it’s not too late! Where can we find this? We’ll make an offer!

What the heck is this? What creative or twisted mind concocted this rig, which we would bet a lot of money is one of a kind? What is it — part van, part eighteen wheeler, part pickup? Where is it? Have you seen it? We want to see inside. If you know its whereabouts, see if you can get a tour and send pics! You’ll be our hero.

We welcome your photos or ones you come across. Submit them here, and please tell us whatever you know about the vehicles.

Re: the caption for the Fonz-mobile — “trying to pick up babes.” I suspect this remark was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but it offended me. And, I am sure that is not how the writer meant it to come across.

I am not a wacky, militant feminist, just a plain ol’ retired average American woman. But, I am old enough to have lived through the days when women had to fight long and hard for the right to be seen as equals and not as {bleeped} objects. Words like these stir up the pot.

LOL, I bet that you did not expect this sort of reaction, but as you well know, words matter, they carry weight. Even in jest, they can perpetuate things that are best left in the past.

I love the newsletter; I am one of your biggest fans. I think it is the best information source on RVing on the planet. Thank you for your hard work and good deeds!

Love the Hot rod and the 5’r ,Would this work with a Tesla Cybertruck and a hitch over the top of the vault instead of inside the cargo space, Just a thought!

It appears the nautical RV has a boat license on the side of the bow. Design-wise it does not look odd-ball at all . . . to me.

I am giving it up, from camping as a child to family RV trips to retirement in a motor home. I have many good times and happy memories. Maybe that’s why its so hard for me to enjoy the packed lakes, excessively gadgeted public and the mounds of trash, everywhere. There are a different set of values out there and this year brought it to a Peak. I am sitting out 2020 hoping for a change.

I am so with you on this..We have only gotten out once this year because we can’t find any campground with openings and we usually camp during the week…And these new campers are nothing like the old respect,dogs poop in your site and they don’t pick it up,people and kids going right thru the middle of your site.and to get a hello or good morning without getting ignored is becoming way to common also..Lets hope 2021 is a better year <3

Would totally roll in the hotrod with the 5th wheel setup. The configuration would be very stable at speed and be quite maneuverable.
