How about this Trailer hitch.............

This photo were taken outside the hardware store...where he was buying duct tape. It's the only safety precaution that's missing...

Great Spy Shot

Toastie---Great camera work. Looks like you caught Brand X road testing their new prototype hitch. Way to go!

nice shots, the 4x4 under the tailgate was my favorite. i don't think the tv front tires will be wearing much.

Yankee ingenuity! Notice the two mods he made to accomodate the extra weight.

Absolutely incredible. A lot of thought went in to it. I wonder how far he planned on going?

The really scary part of this is that someone even thought of doing this. Let us hope it's a joke and that we'll never see that puppy on the road when we are towing. Talk about the tail wagging the dog.....

Thanks for the laugh.

Please tell me he's just using that tv to hold up the 5th wheel until he gets the dually back from being serviced! Unbelievable!

Just read some of the other posts on this forum; it sounds like there are plenty of others trying similar stunts with their set-ups! There is no shortage of scary TV/Camper combos out there, that’s for sure…
