Spoil the pooch: Dog houses are knock-offs of high end RVs

Plenty of people spoil their dogs. Now here's a way the well-heeled RVer can spoil his dog: Get a doghouse that looks just like your RV. Bob Ruston, who works out of his garage in Fountain, Colorado can do it for you.

Ruston is looking ahead to his retirement, and his working-years skills help him make some pretty good "knock-offs" in the RV industry. One of his skills: A street-rod airbrush artist. And his off-time skills? He's an RVer, of course, pulling his travel trailer out to national parks at least three times a year.

So when Mrs. Ruston needed a bread box, Mr. Ruston decided to add carpentry to his skills list. The finished product was so great, he decided to fashion a dog house for the family Pug. One thing led to another, and now Ruston's latest project is a Thor diesel pusher, complete with detailing down to tail lights and satellite dish.

Bob Ruston's pampered pooch parlors aren't for the man (or dog) low on cash. They start out at $500. Check out the video for a walk around.

RVer fails to heed warnings -- pays big price

Maybe this motorhome's owner thought the authority's name was "Chicken Little." Who knows? But in Arizona, when somebody warns you to move your rig out of a low-lying area, it's best to pay attention. Rain, even far away, can suddenly turn dry ground into more than just a damp spot. This fellow was parked near Roosevelt Lake, and the day before the picture was shot, was advised to move his rig.

He didn't.

The lake rose more than 12 feet and by the next day the result looked like this:

Beep! Beep! It's sheep!

RVers are used to dealing with unusual situations. In the U.S. it's usually heavy traffic on the road -- but in New Zealand, "heavy traffic" can be something far different than cars and trucks!

Travel trailer goes to new heights -- a tree top flyer

Somewhere, in an undisclosed location near Los Angeles, someone has gone to a lot of work to find a new place to park their trailer. Mind you, LA is not normally considered one of America's top places for RVing, but according to sources, within five miles of downtown this venue really does have a lot going for it. Check it out.


Our thanks to Los Angeles I'm Yours for sharing this great picture.
