VW bug 5th wheel SOB from 1974

This came in an email today and I thought I would share. It is a video (from 1974?) of a 5th wheel camper that mounts on a compact car. Thought the manuverability of it was pretty neat. Not sure how the roof handles the weight over time though:

That's pretty amazing. I also wonder how that 36 horsepower engine (I think that was the right number) could pull it down the road and get up to speed.
