I saw that and tried to find a bit more story without luck. I first thought photoshopped but they hit the details pretty well, the angle of the trailer tires, the rear of the van is bottomed out, front of the van is up.

Bad, just bad news there.

It's a fool proof plan!

That is a Pontiac Montana. It's engine is going to eat itself soon enough anyway.

B47...Ever watched a guy pass you and wonder how in the world he passed inspections? He's the same guy that can go from here to California and back and never get stopped because he did not pass safety and/or emissions inspections. While you and I can have everything spit shined and in tip top shape and have a license bulb burned out and get at ticket for it.

Yeah I've seen those guys - but this rig is so obviously out of bounds that you have to wonder how it ever got on the road.

I wonder if this is an "drinking" related idea. You know "who needs a f350, I bet my mini van could pull your dumb 5ver"

2000 Cherokee 31BH, "flipped axles and raised",LEDs, solar, inverter, etc..aka "boondock ready". '07 Tundra 5.7L DC-LB, modded as well.

OT, sorta, but when I did a search on "mini van towing 5th wheel" I got this;

Here is a neat solution that enables van and SUV owners to pull a 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer without buying a pickup. Pickup owners can also tow 5th wheels and gooseneck trailers without having a hitch use up the bed of their pickup! Pretty Neat! There are pics and info at www.tiny1.net/hitchbuddy.jpg and the manufacturer's website is www.hitch-buddy.com I've pulled a 40' 5th wheel across the U.S. with a motorcycle in the bed of the pickup and it performed GREAT!

Check out that jpg link. That's, IMO, death looking for a place to happen.
