It does look like a newer tag but can you imagine driving that! I can't picture the interior being much better than the exterior from the looks of that roof.

Quite well I would say. "Somebody" burned it down on him. I wonder if he just by chance owed money on it? Hm? W%

I'm surprised the propane tank is still intact.

Here's a video of an RV fire. 
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zSjZVlnKHg 
About halfway though, the propane tank begins venting just as it is designed to and the propane is simply burned off.  In a larger fire, (think train wreck or storage facility) the propane may boil too quickly to be vented off and you end up with a BLEVE (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion).  Thank goodness that doesn't happen often.  Rick

I have never seen an RV tank or a Propane powered vehicle tank blow. They just vent. Have been on many vehicle fires. Tires, on the the other hand do blow!


And by the way, gasoline tanks don't blow up either. They just leak out and get hotter and hotter. Movies are great for that one.

A reminder to keep your extinguisher up-to-date. I carry two in all my vehicles; a CO2 for my stuff that might be burning and a dry chemical for other people's stuff  ;)

For anyone who travels with there refrigerator operating on propane & forgets to turn off the fridge before refueling This is a very likely scenario as just fumes from filling can ignite from fridge flame Also applys to hot water tanks pilot flame oven or stove top even furnace  flame . The safest way to travel is with main propane valve closed  There is also the probability of a vibration created leak in propane or gasoline  Before fueling take a look around . Once the fire starts if you don't lose it all you will be very lucky !
The Journey is the REWARD !
