I had take a minute to look all over those pictures.

{CurseWord} unbelievable.

I do not think this calls for the weight police, more like the DOT. This homer needs to be off the roads.

Just now getting to where I am laughing about it.

Is that a big blue poo tank on top of that van? He may need it when that rig grinds to a halt.

Thanks guys for the after work smiles.

I was driving yesterday and saw a newer BMW 7 series towing an Airstream. Nothing surprises me anymore

You don't say how big an Airstream. I found the following capacities on the BIMMERFORUMS site here:

750iL towing capacity

For a BMW 750:

The German owners manual says:
tow hook load (weight) max. 50 kg 50 kg = 110 lbs
with LAD or the special trailer springs: 75 kg 75 kg = 165 lbs

trailer max weight:
without brake for trailer 750 kg 1650 lbs
with brake for trailer 1600 kg 3520 lbs

Max. roof load: 100 kg 220 lbs

see here what an E34 535 can pull
BMW moves a Merc

I had an acquaintance who lived in a very old Airstream over the winter (-20F some nights). It had a wood stove in it. He said it would creak and crack as it warmed up and cooled down. He called it "The Silver Twinkie!"

Can't see why he needs a safety chain. Some of those pictures must have been staged? I like the one with the tail gate open with the hitch attached. When you think you have seen it all, all of sudden you really haven't. Thanks my morning chuckle.
