Is this "enough truck" for the trailer?

Just found on another forum...

Nice daily driver too.

I did see something similar with a Smart Car sitting sideways where the sleeper is. I don't remember if he got the car down with ramps to a crane.

You see everything out there.

He's the least of my worries on the road. It's the guy with the fifth wheel attached to a rusted out Ford Ranger that scares the bejeezers out of me; or the one I saw last year; a VW Golf pulling one of those 8' x 14' Coleman pop ups. The VW was fully loaded with kids and gear with the rear suspension having, oh, maybe an inch of travel left.

Cheers
Tony

That happens more than you would think. Some people own a fifth wheel trailer, which is permanently parked somewhere. They don't stop to consider the trailer may have to be moved occasionally, and end up hiring a truck to move it.

If it's the same person we saw in the West Yellowstone KOA two years ago the smart car came off on ramps. I stood and watched. Impressive.
