Can your unhitched TV do this.....

Just something to do at the Dunes once the TT is setup at the Silver Lake State Park.

This goes on every year out at the Silver Lake Dunes on Lake Michigan.

There are plenty of videos on YouTube of these idiots from the State Park campground running their sand-rails and TV's on the dunes.

I'm pretty sure most all our TV's could do that, at least once. But of course we are all too experienced and mature to ever do anything like that!

It's a learning experience, some times it just cost more to learn things like: I need long travel suspension to do this jump and my truck has stock suspension and once it bottoms out all the energy will be used to bend important parts of my truck.

Awesome! To be fair though, it didn't look like the Raptor (modified BTW) got quite as much air. Could just be the video angle though...
