Is This A Good Tow Vehicle?

I was browsing for a used truck and came across this and was wondering if it would make a good tow vehicle.

With all that extra weight, I am surprised if it can do more than propel itself down the road. If you buy it, I bet you could get yourself some part time work with the Secret Service.

It would be good in the worst areas, but you might want to armor the Jayco too!

If you need/want that then you also would have a motorhome like in the movie "Meet the Flockers"

The ad doesn't give the actual weight, but I think that big V-8 is probably a little overkill for the vehicle . . . . .LOL

I was wondering why the guy wants to sell it? Does not need it anymore?:hihi: I know he got run over by a taxi when he stepped out.
