maybe thats how the resale illegal drugs are going around..unmarked recreational vehicles?
Nobody here in Montreal has found this odd, has said a word about it or even cares. In fact, I find the combat fatigues a lot more fashionable and functional than the standard stuffy police uniform. But then again, Miami is not Montreal, a city with a rich history of rioting.

Maybe this vehicle is waiting to be marked. Also, I do not find it uncommon that a police vehicle would be unmarked anyway. When I am in California, I often see CHP vehicles that are unmarked. Some of these vehicles are also not what one would normally consider to be the type used by police.

The walls were all lined ceiling high with cases of bottled water. I had to wait so I started counting cases. I got up to two thousand before I had to go and there were a lot left. I defiantly thought that was weird.

I think this is an important thread.
We should all have our eyes open for what seems out of place.
It is imperative that we are responsible for sharing and reporting to one another -
those things that are right in front of us.
It isn't about being paranoid - it is about being aware.
Our department has an RV in the parking lot. It’s been there for about nine months. It just sits there, never really thought any thing about it. They also put up a thirty by thirty shed type building next to it.

I just did a search of police rv's and learned that they are most likely used as mobile command centers, mobile communication centers or mobile crime labs. From your description of your small town, I wonder why they would need a mobile anything. I also looked at some manufacturers of these items for police and determined that they roll off the lot exactly how you describe the one you saw. My curiousity is peaked a little simply because I wonder why your community needs one. Maybe someone found a way to waste some of that homeland security money.

The State of Florida confiscates many vehicles every year from everything from motor homes to motorcycles.
Once the felons are convicted, often property gained by illegal means, (drug dealing, transport, etc.,) these vehicles are owned by the State of Florida.
Different agencies use what they want, and the others are sold at auction.
Motor homes provide mobile offices, surveillance vehicles, and group transport.
They may have been participating in or covering an undercover operation nearby.
And the black fatigues?

Why don't you just go to the police station and ask them what it is?
I can think of a dozen valid reasons for the vehicle to be there. Don't assume it belongs to Surfside.
