Can I go buy it or not?
so u post here hoping for a "NOT opposite opinion" ?
for u spectators the 05s were the old style civilian/classic 'g wagon'
not the latter version occasionally posted about here.
ya know the old 'slab sided' boxy HIGH ones ?
and the w463? version in 2005 was based on a 1990 chassis basically..
in 05 there was a REALLY short wheelbase version and a longer version
that also had a short wheelbase...
yes the hand built engine is nearly 500 hp and 500 ft/lb and wicked fast...
but towing should be limited to small trailers or vanity vintage trailers...
"whatever is needed" hitch wise (like a pp or haha) won't solve the payload question...
and any longer stream will be OVER the payload and frame capacity.
could it be 'made' to work?
but the notion of trying is just plain silly...
otoh, miami is a pretty silly place.
so buy the stream, tie them together and get noticed.
or purchase an appropriate tv 2 connect WITH the stream and travel NORTH or WEST of the aquifer...
