Yea this has been out there for a while. The scary part is that there really are people who do stuff like this.

Unhappy

Proof positive: There is no shortage of idiots on our planet.

Along the same line of thinking: The sign at the railroad crossing states "DO NOT STOP ON THE TRACKS" The scary part about that is we are driving on the same roads as are the people who actually NEED that sign

It would have been better to mount the receiver on the roof, but that would affect the resale value.

See it all the time. Bet he "doesn't even know it's back there" lol. Actually surprised the tailgate didn't collapse but some people skimp on a tow vehicle and splurge on a big camper all the time... I love seeing the small trucks pull in big fifth wheels at the campgrounds....

Check the pix again. It's the turned down 4X4 into the bumper hitch that stabilizes the tailgate.

Engineers..... Sheesh!
