A friend sent me this. I'm not sure but I think it might be a bit of overkill for the average Airstream.

There was a guy next to us in the campground that was towing a fifth wheel with a red Chevy medium duty 6 wheel tractor- think Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Budweiser...
It still looked overloaded/had a dip/swag in the middle.
The people on the other side were pilling s 40' trailer with a slide- think "park model" 12,000-15,000# trailer with a 1/2 ton pickup and no weight distributing hitch.
There was another family towing a 25-28' Coachmen behind a Tahoe with the ball so high (it was adjustable ) the rear bumper of the trailer was nearly on the ground. I pointed out to him that his tires were low and he said, "We ain't got far to go, maybe 12 miles."
I hope they all made it home without breaking something...
I see something crazy every time I go out...

I saw this one in Cave Creek, AZ a few years ago but didn't get my camera out in time to show the 6 large family members before they got out of the Jeep, it was worse than this.

I saw one rig that was a van towing a rather long SOB trailer, with a garden tractor hanging off a rack on the back. I wish I'd gotten my camera out, but I was too stunned. Later that day, a friend said he spotted the same rig along the road; looked like the frame of the camper broke. No kidding.

At a rally in 2008, we were listening to a presenter talk about the history of Airstream models when someone said, "I'm sorry to interrupt, but everyone, please look to your left." Sitting at the camp store was a large rollback tow truck, with a Mini Cooper on it, and a large fifth wheel hanging off the back (I'm not sure how it was hitched). Naturally, the campground had no spots large enough for that monster. Again, no camera ready. At least in that case the truck seemed up to the task. But wow.

The front and rear bumpers of the Jeep are missing.
What's up with that?

He was trying to shave off a little extra weight.

I don't think this rig is ever overloaded. He has plenty of payload.Click image for larger version
