    Now that right there is just plain hard to believe. I refuse to believe that someone would do that. I mean I see it but I don't believe it!

    Guess he didn't notice the bolt holes it came with....good lord.

    He'd get my S.I.F. added on for that one.

    S.I.F. - Standard Irritation Fee.

    It's a flat $50 but can be added several times as needed...

    The coupler isn't even clamped down, it is through the hole flopping around on the threads of the C clamp.

    This kind of thing gets my goat.

    Below is the financial consequence of an idiot like that.
    We now have a permanently handicapped child in our home; she is happy, (and so are we) but our family has never been the same.
    If you see that in your shop; read them the riot act and show them the bill for me!
    Maybe they'll think.
    Good grief

    A short call to the state police would be in order. That d&^$ fool is going to kill someone. A hefty fine may force him to engage some of those dormant neurons.

    I bet it can be tricky trying to accurately back that camper into a parking space.

    As far as how the axles and pivot points are laid out, that's actually a VERY common configuration for big trucks. They aren't as hard to back up as you'd think

    This doesn't really fit into trailering, but it doesn't doesn't deserve its own thread, so I'll just put this here:

    That would be the same as backing up a wagon. I wonder what speed you can get it up to before it starts wandering.

    Tool boxes, definitely tool boxes. As I guarantee that the car would not be mine.......

    Thats one way to get more welding coverage. Did he plug weld the holes too? That would for sure lock her up!

    Here's a little different type of trailer fail that happened to me a couple days ago. Lesson learned, never let an unemployed pajama wearing hippy in a smart car lead you through the woods....
