We see lots and lots of rigs on the road (and in parks, and at rest areas & truck stops), composing a rather colorful spectrum of RV possibilities.

We're not sure why this fifth wheel was towed out of the park, but we were mightily impressed by how it was done!

Just down the row from us here in Virginia Beach, this one prompted a text message to our son, who has actually built tiny homes! Note his enthusiastic response.
