As a Canadian I am embarrassed that a camper from a neighbouring province (SK) would do something like that. I wonder how the heck he got the front wheel up on the logs?

These motorhomes have built in hydraulic levelers, look under the front and you can see one on a log to raise it up.

you should see the 'log cabin' crib of railroad ties my kid has to use when he needs to jack his 5-ton 6x6 (26000 lb curb weight) for wheel or brake maintenance.
