Most unbelievable tow setup I've ever seen...

I'll start off by saying that I was unable to get pics of this rig which I regret. We were in moderate traffic on a 3 lane each direction highway and I didn't see it in time to tell the better half to get a pic of it. Here's the setup- newer F150 SCrew was towing an older low profile 5er. I could see the truck was squatting heavily through traffic- discovered why when I got a clear view of it. He had a bar sticking out ~2+' behind the receiver with 5er sitting on that with a lengthened gooseneck adapter of some type. I've never seen anything like it in my life. The front tires of the TV had to have almost no weight on them and the forces that the hitch were seeing from the leverage of the bar extending so far back had to be astronomical. I can't imagine this guy made it to his destination.

Yep. I'll try to draw a picture when I get a chance showing the basic setup.

That one probably wins. But I saw this one in person, so it's more meaningful to me!
