Good eye and nice seeing one on the road to see more.

Obviously from Colorado and reasonably "decked out", but, are those "back-up lights hanging off the air conditioner?

Looks like they’re towing with a Honda Ridgeline, so that’s probably a jet pack mounted to the roof to help get them up the mountains. 😝

All in good fun.  But an interesting choice for a mountain dweller - I’d love to read a review from someone who’s towed with one.

An elite I can be towed with a properly equipped Ridgeline  

We have friends who did that for years.

Sure, but, that really looks like a "II" to me.

Yes it is the shorty, the placement of the rear view mirror in the picture messes up that “instant recognition” the tandem axles give you for the LE2. The bigger trailer has that window sized area of gelcoat between the left two EQUAL SIZED main windows. It is so weird that we are even discussing this…. Phone pictures can fool you. I think we get used to the perspective distortion you get from the typical phone fisheye lens. It can be really hard to judge sizes.

AND - there is only one "porch light"!

edit - that's what I get for being in a rush.😊

What is the object to the left of the rear window?

Pure guess, judging from the position and the bike rack, it is an anchor point for a handlebar. I haven’t ever carried a bike there but always wondered about that issue….

OTH I have considered putting a tall cell antenna mast there with a stainless ratchet mount, maybe that is the purpose and it isn’t quite finished yet…. But a flagpole support certainly sounds valid.

I was wondering about that, too.
