Yep. When I first saw those pictures I thought they were just traveling together then I noticed in the first picture that the toad has a tow bar in front and then I saw tow ball in back of the motorhome and thought WOW.

My real concern is braking. Hopefully he has toad brakes installed because if he doesn't he's stopping one heck of a load with just the factory brakes

Pulling up behind that 'rig' on the road would sure give me cause to get around him and out of the area as soon as possible...!

The projecting load to the front is illegal in Michigan. No more than two feet, I believe.

Well, at least he has improved the crash performance of the MH, by adding extra crumple zones....
The fact that I bet the brakes would not hold is a different issue....
