The TT box is attached to one long heavy frame, and the 3 axels are near the end of the trailer box, just ahead of the car. Obviously not the original frame for the TT. Not pretty, but probably safe to tow. However, I would not want to be in front or behind this guy.

Not only stupid but illegal " Any object extending 4 feet or more (some states 3 feet) behind the rear of any vehicle must be appropriately marked (Red flagged) ......." True in CA and AL and most every other state. The condition as shown is why semi trailers have rear bumpers or drop down guards in back, as mandated by the DOT, to prevent a car from driving under the rear end.

The point is that the truck can tow the 5th wheel but not the car in addition so he carries the car. It would make more sense if it was a boat!

Do the brake lights on the car work when he applies the truck brakes. If they don't then he has more than a 5' overhang and no warning flags. I wonder what state police have to say about this setup.

Hi Larry,

Yup, it's for real! I was driving and had my wife take the photo. I alternated between "I can't believe anyone would make such a contraption", to "What was the reasoning", to....laughing.

What I ultimately came to...whatever floats your boat...er, car.

Looks like a rollback bed or ramp.
The car's brake lights are probably hooked up. I see wires coming from the trailer's tail lights.

Hilarious! This explanation makes more sense than any I've come up with!
