"WhatsUpDownunder" is an Australian website/magazine about RV life in Australia. It's interesting to note that "big & heavy" RV's (or associated TV's) doesn't seem to be anywhere near as prevalent as it is in the USA. As a matter of fact, Jayco of Australia doesn't offer a TT longer than 25ft (which is long by Australian standards).
"WhatsUpDownunder" is an interesting read....., but what's cool is after the home page has loaded, slide the bottom scroll bar to the right......

The US is the "Super Size Me" country I think. LOL Same with fast food - they make it almost cheaper to buy a super sized meal than a normal portioned one....
I am always astounded by the size of some of the rigs when we camp. Gorgeous 5ers and TTs, but I am always curious if these are folks like me, who work ffull time and just get a few weeks out of the year to go, or if they are full timers, retired, etc. If they are like me, wow, I just don't think I could justify spending that much money on something so large and luxurious since I mainly camp what weekends I can in the summer, and about a week two times a year on vacation. My wallet just isn't that fat. LOL
