The Muffler Man of Hatch, NM, advertises RVs along the entry road into town. On closer inspection, we note that he's holding a model Winnebago. This towering fiberglass salesman is only one of the larger-than-life characters that make Hatch an unforgettable stop...

I saw this muffler man and stopped to take a photo. He is in really great shape, with his giant hat leaning against his legs.

While traveling on Interstate 25 I stopped in Hatch, New Mexico to eat at the Dairy Queen. Next door was an RV salesman with this muffler man holding a tiny model of a Winnebago RV in his upturned right hand. The RV dealership is called Franciscan RV.

I found this Muffler Man driving through Hatch, New Mexico. It is on the west side the road about a half-mile south of I-25 on State Highway 26. Looks like a standard Muffler Man with a small RV in his right hand. He is standing in what looks to be a construction storage yard. Note the hamburger girl in the red dress next to him. There is a western hat on the ground next to his left leg. He appears to be in very good shape.

This is the Muffler Man reported as moved from Ohio in April 2006. The A&W Hamburger Girl is a more recent addition.
