    Interesting. I’d like to see a video of it driving down the road.

    I've seen wayyyyy scarier tow vehicles and trailers than that. That thing doesn't bother me a bit!

    Now, if you want to see some scary towing stuff, watch some Russian dashcam videos, lol!

    Looks like a decent idea in concept. Keeps the trailer's weight centered on the tow vehicle.
    I'll bet that roof is stronger than the frame of most new cars.

    Creative. But insane. Especially the bit about the brakes.

    You see alot of legal truck towing a camper, towing a boat in Cali. Very scary in a crosswind. I witnessed this type combo eastbound on I40 between Barstow and AZ. Guy lost control, rolled the camper, boat rocketed into the median. IMHO this really should not be legal.

    I just saw that a few days ago. Pickup towing a travel trailer towing a boat trailer. I *think* it's illegal in my province, but not sure. Legal or not, I'm shocked I don't see it more often. That being said, I take pride in my ability to reverse a truck and trailer with ease, but can't imagine having to constantly think three steps ahead in order to not have to back out of somewhere with a rig like that.

    Reminds me of when I lost reverse in my van when I was a broke youngster and had to be careful how and where I parked for almost a year, lol.

    I lost my alternator in a Toyota pickup in college and push started it for about a month until I could afford to fix it. Parked way in back of the lots pointing downhill. It got me a couple times when it was icy and the tire just skidded.
