OPs name in real life is Hank Johnson from GA.
Stay away from those unstable islands!

Really, do you think the stabilizers are there just to keep the RV from tipping? They are called "STABILIZERS", not anti-filp backwards devices. They keep RV from wobbling on its springs when humans move around inside. A person walking around like a lumbering walrus is second in annoyance to the crinkly bag girl who likes to adjust her "luggage" late at night.

I wouldn't be surprised if that motorhome has a 2" bolt on adapter on the bumper that is holding the cargo basket and bike rack.

I actually check it.
The hitch receiver is frame-mounted.
Twisted bumper had to be done by previous design.
Somehow nobody noticed that the rear hitch carries about 400 lb of cargo, what is about 12-14 ft behind rear axle.
Spare wheel is on the rear as well.

That's only becouse 3 persons going to rear bedroom would lift front off the ground.

That would make for a pretty cool Youtube video.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

We've always had them. It's a special division of the weight police with additional training requirements.

I think you’d buckle the rear body before you lifted the front off the ground putting people back there.
At any rate, that’s a heck of an assumption to make upon looking at this rig.
Pretty much all longer Class C motorhomes have a lot of rear overhang.
Truck campers center all their weight about over the truck rear axle too.

I checked the date- wanted to be sure I hadn't woken from a coma and it's April 1.

No way would it lift the front. Engine and trans are heavier than 3 people and are further from the rear axle than those folks could be.
