Towing FAIL! These people hitch their fifth wheel backwards!

22

OMG! Our eyeballs nearly popped out of our heads when we saw this. Can you believe this is real? These people hitched up their fifth wheel backward. We can only imagine the damage this will cause!!

What would you do if you were pumping gas and saw this person drive away like this? We sure hope someone ran up and told them to stop driving…

Thanks to reader Thomas Sisson for sending. Thomas wrote, “Thought you guys might enjoy this one.” We don’t know if “enjoy” is exactly the right word. We did enjoy it, but we also cringed, screamed, covered our eyes…

Anyway, watch for yourself and we’re sure you’ll do all those things too.

Obviously photoshopped if you look at how high the back end is riding

Riding high because the front of the 5th wheel is weighing down. Wish I knew the story behind this!

I don’t see ANY way this is “clearly” Photoshopped.

As the saying goes, you can’t fix stupid, BUT, you can muffle the sound with duct tape.

Wouldn’t give a nickel for what’s left of the front wheel bearings……

Is is possible they just got it and the only way they could move it was backwards? They didn’t have a pickup truck with them, obviously. Hopefully they didn’t have to go far.

I assume they got a great deal on a fifth wheel but couldn’t afford a new truck to haul it. I call in ingenuity! Lets hope it doesn’t do any damage to their SUV and they enjoy their camping trip.

I’m with you. Looked like quality ingenuity at its finest right there. Sort of like the “Red/Green” show.
Ain’t got no 5th Wheel Truck but need to get it home? Figured out ‘nother way!

A panic stop would likely result in lifting the rear wheels of the tow vehicle off the ground causing a jackknife and resulting accident. The tow suspension is already stretched due to excessive rear weight, also any speed would result in the rear swaying.
