Do not try this at home... by Torklift Jen
I take all of the warning labels found around the truck camper very seriously. They are vital to keep us safe when common sense does not kick in and liability could be an issue.
I am carefully reading through them all. If only there were more warning labels like these in my life.
For example, the passenger mirror standard, “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.”
On the occasional morning when I go to the bathroom mirror and “YIKES!” I am reminded of the memorable scene from the movie Jurassic Park when T-Rex is visible in the rear view mirror and ready to pounce. If I had that sticker on the mirror it would warn me of the terror I call the Vel-floss-ciraptor.
There should also be a sticker similar to the GVWR label on the bathroom scale. The strict standards we are to adhere to keeping the weight of the vehicle and trailer in line. I’m glad that campers can’t wear stretchy spandex when they’ve overindulged.
I don’t have a bad temper, but it would be nice to know the exact maximum amps it would take before I blew a fuse.
My favorite warning that should be applied to truck camping: “Do not try this at home.” This is because with a truck camper I should really be out camping.
