5Th Wheelers Check This Out

Radio, you might get a kick out of this !!!!!

Redneck Class lll Hitch Install
Wouldn't you love to see how the trip went, reckon he ended up doin' some off roadin' somewhere.....


She's hitched up and ready to roll!! Amazin' how the extra weight smoothes out the ride.
Needed to air up the rear tires a bit ('bout 160 psi).

Added some heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate, (note the 'Heavy-Duty 'S' hooks to attach the chain) Also paid-up for some BIG 5/16 sheet metal screws to attach the frame to the tailgate.
Yep, probably overkill, but didn't want the possibility of having an axerdent.

Most of the time was spent on the front porch whittling down that MASSIVE 4x4 to fit precisely into the ball mount receiver.
Note: The 14'x14' piece of 3/8' plywood on the underside of the tailgate to distribute the load more evenly.
'YOU CAN'T BE TOO SAFE, YOU'ALL!!'.
B'gosh it costs a little more, but jeez, you just can't be too safe.

That was Greg, I'm Wade.

And you can tell the guy is a ham by the tell-tale wire running up the side of the trailer to somewhere on the roof.

Wonder how Reese feels about their product being installed this way?
