Yep. Seen this before.

I'm sure it had to be staged. Can someone be that foolish?

And I thought I was clueless. Now I won't feel as bad when I ask the JOF what I would consider to be a "stupid question." Even I wouldn't do something that dangerous. Happy Camping!!!

Surely this is just a fake set up to make us laugh - there is no way he can steer with his front wheels off the ground, even with 160# in the rear ones. And as to the VW 5er hitch, I have never actually seen one like this, but a friend claims he saw one back in the 70s, and it really did work as advertised.
