That video has been around a long time. Still an idiot!

The dual hitch idea was original though!

Folks, do we know this persons' circumstances? SOMETIME, necessity becomes the mother of invention. Could it be the owner had no choice but to move the trailer this way? If YOUR trailer was in danger and someone offered to move it in this fashion, would you think of him as an idiot. (OK, I'm off my soapbox now)
