What really is unique here is the diversity of folks and their rigs... from authentic restored (or in process of restoring) first-gen bumper pulls and coaches to first-gen conversions (school bus into elegant motorhome type), to the ones who start with a blank sheet of paper and build their own "right" rig to simply taking a production piece and trying to update and refresh it for another round of service. They are all great!
Sure we all must enjoy camping, traveling, boondocking, whatever the personal choice is, otherwise we wouldn't be here - but our rigs all have the personal thumbprint and DNA involved with the coach somehow. The rigs are not just a utility or an appliance, but an actual extension of the owners and it is readily apparent. It is not a question of skills or talent but more of identity and some level of affection and personalization for the rigs.
to paraphrase, what is often unspoken but known by those who go or have gone to sea -
"Love. Can know all the math in the 'verse but take a coach in the trails that you don't love? She'll shake you off just as sure as a turn in the worlds. Love keeps her running when she oughtta fall down...tell you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens...makes her a home.”
-actually from a tv show that I can't remember the name of - but I remember this line...
Many other sites may share many of the same characteristics and members as this site - it's just not as apparent.
