Shoot, I could pull that easy with my Honda Accord! Just need a few pieces of twine and some paper clips to secure it all down right and we'd be rollin'!

I think they had to go with 20 lb LP tanks so it wasn't over weight.

Nothing wrong with that.


I pulled an auction win 25' TT home with my sedan and the wrong coupling (TT 2 5/16 vs. 1 7/8 on the car) held together with heavy-duty zip ties.

You know you're a redneck when...

I always suspected there was one hiding behind that visor...

What's the issue, this one looks to had a 1/2 tonner pushing it. Mobile home with a view, just watch that first step.

Not hiding nothing!

Redneck through and through!

My favorite from Jeff Foxworthy:
... you own a home that is mobile and 14 cars that aren't.

I've only got 3.

There's an RV dealer not far from home -- sadly a Jayco dealer, too -- who recently advertised on their sign "Yes, your car can tow it." I wonder how many people took them to task for that before they took it down?

You might be a redneck if your wife ever told you to get the transmission out of the tub so she can take a bath.

I was almost a victim of the dealer saying I could tow it. We signed paperwork on a trailer that was way too tongue heavy for my TV. Luckily I went home and did some more research and was ...... when I learned that the dealer was going to let me drive off the lot with it. After some heated words and the threat of a lawsuit they let us change TTs.
