What do you make of this rig?

Well, it doesn't get much more fun than this! All I can come up with for an explanation, if I had been able to speak with the owner, is....."By gum, I wanted to do this set-up just the way I wanted to do it, and no one, and I mean no one, was going to stop me!". Ha!

Too funny! I tried for fifteen minutes to rotate the photo (taken on an iPhone) and couldn't, even after searching the forum for advice. Figured the rig photo was worth posting even if the photo was rotated.

Is this for real, or just a good Photoshop job?

It is a relatively short 3 axle house trailer.
The car carrier seems to be part of the trailer frame.
That car probably weighs less than the amount of house trailer that would be there.
What's the point? I don't get it.
I couldn't rotate the picture on my PC.

This is the kind of thing a retired millwright would fabricate from the ground up. I'll bet he's got a machine shop for a bedroom. LOL This guy is definitely a redneck.

The ramp probably raises and lowers and retracts when not in use. The third axle was probably added for greater stability.

There is probably nothing unsafe or structurally wrong. Looks like the car carrier is tied into the trailer frame really well. I just don't see the point, though.

If anyone ever rear ends this rig, look out it's curtains for them.
