Yeah, that is wrong. He should have the doors on to tow that.

Is it me, or does the back off the TJ look lower? Like the trailer is pushing down?

Yes, it looks like the trailer is pushing it down.

I'll bet he gets around 3 mpg, pulling that thing.

I would say so. The tongue weight on that thing is waaaayy over. That's why it's a fifth wheel...

I suspect it's over the 2000 pound towing capacity. Yikes it looks like its ready to pop a wheelie.

No side mirrors when towing = FAIL :-)

I think laws of physics will get him if laws regarding use of public thoroughfare don't get to him first.

Hopefully this is just a prank.

I am guessing these guys may camp together or atleast live in the same area.....

This guy obviously put a lot more thought and time into making sure his hitch would properly support the extra hitch weight. The wooden support obviously took some time to properly configure.

The fifth wheel goes on the tire carrier.

Although the owner may have carelessly towed as such, but he might also just be using it to pull around the yard. It appears to be in a residential area & I've been known to use my jeep to pull my deckboat around the yard once or twice myself.

This thread is full of a lot of the reasons there are stupid warning that are obvious such as having to put warnings on coffee cups that the contents may be hot.

I like the one that says "Don't use the hair dryer in the shower".
