I believe it was the Romans who described this situation best; they called it "Sagamus Maximus".
Lethal for chariots as well...

We haven't seen the scene you described yet, but that would be scary to see

RV'ing is a luxury & not a necessity...with that said, you see so many people go buy the biggest TT on the lot but take no consideration with their TV in being capable & safe...if you can afford the camper, you can afford the right TV or wait it out & continue tent/cabin camping until you can do both properly!
I cringe everytime I see setups like this :0

In today's Sue Crazy world, I just wonder if they and others like them might be exposing themselves to possible lawsuits down the road if the buyers get in an accident and claim negligence on the dealers part.

They would have to sue every dealer in the US of A. The state laws govern the driver's license requirements, not the dealers.

I'm surprised that people don't. I jumped at the chance to take a drive with one of the dealer's techs when I bought my fifth wheel. He was incredibly helpful and I learned a lot.
