Really? This fifth wheel setup is bizarre and dangerous

Don’t try this! Talk about a weird, wacky and dangerous setup! Reader Michael Logan came across these photos of an SUV towing a fifth wheel trailer eight years ago. He’s not sure of their origin.

We can’t imagine anyone actually driving with this setup, but someone definitely went to a lot of trouble to install the fifth wheel hitch in the back of the car.

Oh I know of some unintelligent people way upon the far northeast coast that have done this. Not friends but people. A Ford Pinto was used on 28′ of 5th wheel. Concrete block strapped to front end as counter balance. I wish I had taken a picture. I was hoping there wasn’t much traffic in the boondocks of Maine. Hunting ruling I was ruling on.

Homeless, not an RVer you normally see.

As a joke, I want to go to our local RV dealer in an older, tiny Ford Festiva and tell them I’m interested in a mid-sized 5th wheel camper. When asked what my tow vehicle is, point to the Festiva.

The sales associate told me my truck would tow it and their service department would set it up.

Considering these are light chains. Surprised the tailgate is still intact.

I think DUANE is referring to the person with this outfit, not Bob p. 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com
