To all who are waiting, unless the owner sees this post, that picture is all there is, there will be no reveal or final answer.

As for the photography questions, it was taken with a Samsung Galaxy S7 so no compression, you can see the shadow car from my wife's headlights of the trailer on the back of the TV

My thought was also that somehow it is hard connected to the vehicle, but thinking of how a tag axle drags, I'm back to how does he make a right turn.. I was just amazed, I've never seen anything that close before.

This was on 93 NB, north of Concord NH, right around Memorial Day. I believe it is an antique NH plate and it doesn't look like there is a plate in the frame of the TV

Some kind of hitch that pivots on the side the vehicle turns toward? Maybe like a double-swing door hinge?

Yankee inginuity - a friend lived in up-state New York. He said his neighbors went to the dump to recycle cast away stuff before they went to the second hand store. So tight to the TV is not a surprize.

I still think this is a normal hitch, well different, that is connected to the rear axle of the Tow Vehicle. Have heard about them, but never seen one. The tag on the trailer and not the TV is a question. The TV is not that vintage a vehicle and that does not quite fit, but maybe grandpa's rig got a new life with a grand kid.

Very interesting thread. The mystery will remain until knowledge over shadows conjecture. So, for now, waiting. Pat

Maybe a Pullrite hitch with a shortened trailer tongue.

I was interested in the pullrite for my F350 but if I recall you lose the spare tire storage underneath.

The tow vehicle's rear cargo doors are open giving the viewer an appearance of closeness to trailer. Ha, ha good try for a thread.

Not sure what you mean. I'm looking at the space between the bumper and trailer as being much closer than normal. I see no indication that the doors are open.

This a pintle hook. It is designed for very heavy loads 30,000 # plus. It makes for very easy coupling. No WD. Overkill is not the right word for the SUV. But hitching is a lot easier.


Happy streaming

How does a pintle hook allow the trailer to be that much closer to the vehicle? When I've seen them in use they seem to just replace the ball and coupler and not alter the space between the trailer and tow vehicle required for turning.

GMC is now running the same gizmo on the trailer package, you have to ditch the propane though or move to the rear bumper.

Look at the back of the TV. Is that a special modification? If so there is a hitch type that is a simicircle contraption the allows a trailer to turn but either edge of the trailer never gets any closer to the TV as the ball travels around the circle instead of the TT pivioting. ??

Kind of like the double coaches on big city busses.

This is a Pull rite hitch. They are still available. You see more about their fifth wheel hitch but the trailer hitch is still available. www.pullrite.com
The hitch mounts primarily on the TV. With what looks like a small stub sticking out of the front of the RV. Backing with it is a whole new experience.
