Had I any clue, I'd explain it myself. Alas, I know nothing about that stuff.

Me, I'd try Googling it, perhaps with search strings like:

and so forth. But...

Privacy -- in an RV park? Far out, man.

In RV parks, actually, privacy is so fleeting and so precious that everyone respects it more than in almost any stick-house neighborhood. If I'm in the ...

Often, but I wouldn't say generally.

I did love my long-bed, crew-cab (4-door) F350.

Another interesting thing or two:

And if it were the original rear there would be taillights etc., or something to mask the holes where they had been.

I am suspicious of a PhotoShop job anyhow. I don't see any reins for driving...

I see nothing that looks like taillights or stoplights, so I think the direction of travel has not been reversed.

They won't throw you out.

I get enough use out of Wikipedia to make it worth a few totally voluntary bucks yearly. I really like it that there aren't any dadgum ads on Wikipedia. So I happily...

Yah, me too. The strange thing is, they say I have decreased kidney function, but it seems to me that my kidneys function a heckuva lot more often than they used to. ;)

Eeeyow. I have had a little of that in the past. Seems to have subsided now that I'm ancient (I have been on Earth more than half the years since Lincoln was assassinated).

Ah so, Wade. Makes sense.

I put several thousand miles on a long-bed, crew-cab F350 pulling a heavy (3000 pounds empty) 20-foot flat-bed (bumper-pull) trailer, and between trips I drove the F350...

I'd definitely go with a 1-ton (Ford F350, Chev/GMC C3500 or K3500). It's no longer than the equivalent 3/4 ton, has a stronger frame and suspension, gets about the same gas mileage, etc. It's a...
