Ultimate Tow Vehicle

I was camping at Tawas Point SP in Michigan last week and found this as the best matched tow vehicle. He made several trips to the dump that day and the next day took his 5'er and left.

May be he could not negotiate the dump station with the fifth wheel in tow. Otherwise, just showing off!!

I think he needs to check his weight capacity on that TV. That dumper might be a little overweight for the truck.
