For Sale: Redneck RV

It’s like those kids from the Beverly Hilbilly’s decided to build a modern car. I keep staring at the RV section wondering how its attached. The ad says that “Its solidly mounted.” Like as solid as the craftsmanship the built it?

Once you get past the part where he grafted a small house onto the back of Pontiac Vibe, you get to the back door. A full size regular house door on the back of a car! How often do you think he gets pulled over?

It does look like there is a surprising amount of room in there even with all the accessories that were added along the way.

The top is massive. It’s difficult to image that top not blowing everywhere at 70mph or simply leaving the car all together. The really odd part is how nice the Vibe looks. It was probably a nice car before his meth binge in the wood shop one night. It really is disgusting but Im also really curious what it drives like!

Here’s the add description and all the pictures for when the original ad is long gone.
