Exclamation Most DANGEROUS tow combination EVER contest!

Greetings; I haven't been on the forum or towing for a while with work, but I just found this and knew I had to share it here; sorry if repost.

No 5th wheel, no problem!

LiveLeak.com - Wait for it..

This setup shows NEGATIVE tongue weight and high behind-axle center of gravity. I think if it makes freeway speed, it won't just sway, it will TWERK!

Share your DANGEROUS TOW COMBI material here!

Aw, he just needs some lighter weight bars, some F rated front tires, and a good anti-sway bar, and he'll be fine.

How about this one: thats a small Toyota Tacoma pulling the ginormous party pontoon. Whole hitch assembly came off, bumper barely hanging on.

Well, compared to pulling an Airstream with a bicycle, that's not bad. But isn't it an awfully large single-axle trailer?

We have a 1958 BMW Isetta. Do you think that It could handle the new Flying Cloud?

My 1958 Citroen 2CV is 425cc at 12 HP, maybe we should have a "Tow Off." Also it's a 4 door 4 passenger rather than your 1 door 2 passenger.

I didn't get a picture,but last January we were driving in Georgia when they were having snow. Traffic was horrendous and the snow made it worse. Trying to merge was an older Jeep Wrangler with a lift kit and large wheels. He was towing an older SOB about 25-28 foot long. He was coming on to the freeway with his front end darn near off the ground and the trailer wagging back and forth.
