A. Einstein.

In this case....

Problems can be created by a level of thinking that ignores the possibility of consequence.

Do you have enough 4x4 lumber to do the job right?

There isn't enough wood in The New Forest to prop up that idea!

Well, for one thing, if he had raised the hitch by just a few inches, the cabover would clear the roof of the Blazer.
Then he could make those tight turns into the bingo parlor parking lot.

I think the guy who put the hitch together must have been thinking bingo!

Add a WD hitch and balance the running gear and he's good to go!

Toastie, you live in Michigan, right? It looks like the tag on the TV is from Utah! Boggles the mind to think that combination actually made it that far. Paleeeezze tell me this a photoshop camper.

I showed this to a buddy and his response was the set up is clearly so the 5th wheel can hold up the back of the S10 Blazer until the guy gets it fixed . He's not a fan of the little trucks having owned one and had nothing but problems so I took his comment in stride - I think he didn't notice that it must be a 4.3L instead of the 2.8L so it would have lots of power to tow the trailer around the yard for lawn mowing, etc....

Ha, I see his safety problem.

He forgot to put the wooden nut on the shaft of his wooden prop!

Rookie mistake.
