The Coolest Thing I Have Ever Seen



I dont even know what to say, except, YES, sign me up! Does anyone remember these? There had to be something wrong, because this idea did not last (I think).

Pretty cool. It makes backing into a site obsolete, but you still need a spotter. I wonder what the interior of the camper looks like.

Now that is neat. I recall reading in a farm paper about an older fellow who was pulling a TT with an ordinary pickup. He figured he should have a bit more power for pulling up steep hills.

He took a smaller front wheel car, cut away everything behind the engine compartment, added a hitch front and back, and placed it in between the truck and the TT. When he needed more power, he remotely fired up the car engine, put it in gear and poured the coal to it.

It was quite the contraption, to say the least. It behaved much like a helper at the head end of a train.

Would you classify that as 5th Wheel?
