I am guessing from the model years of the cars shown... you and your other half were probably not looking at fifth wheels in the 60s to 70s.

Ugly yes but I gotta admit it sure makes spotting the trailer in the campsite easy. Now if it would only get out of the cg up to the highway he might be on to something.
