I discovered this rolling testament to do-it-yourselfers in a shopping center parking lot. As far as I can tell the only new items were the bungee cords holding the plastic tarp on the roof and the large yellow tie down straps securing the camper to the truck bed. To be fair, I must admit the spray painted rims and multicolor paint job on the old Dodge looked as though they had been applied in the last few weeks. It would be easy to describe this as a "redneck motorhome," but that wouldn't give the owner the credit that is deserved.
What I see is a solution to a problem. The problem is that someone needs a camper and has a budget that prevents them from purchasing what they want. They buy what they can afford and use their skills and talents to turn it in to what meets their needs. I expect it is fully paid for, so no financing was needed. The only way this camper's owner gets upside down is if those tie down straps fail while motoring down the highway. Desire and ingenuity overcome a lack of funds. Function trumps form in this case.
It was built in the U. S., the owner used ingenuity and sweat to overcome seemingly insurmountable problems, it was completed within budget, and it functions as it was designed. Those are some of the things that made America great. Maybe the owner should run for office.
