Utah 5th wheel owner ready to roll

How would you like to meet this rig on a two-lane road....coming down the mountain in your direction.....

She's hitched up and ready to roll!!


Added some chain for extra support on the tailgate, (note the 'Heavy-Duty 'S' hooks to attach the chain).

Most of the time was spent on the front porch whittling down that MASSIVE solid pine 4x4 to fit precisely down into the hole in the ball mount receiver.

Note also - The 14''x14'' piece of 3/8' plywood on the underside of the tailgate to distribute the load more evenly and beef up that tailgate support.

'A MAN CAN'T BE TOO SAFE'...

there's no pic showing.

sounds like the famous pic where a 5th wheel is hooked to a Chevy Blazer.
the pic is supposed to have been taken in Utah.

I can see the photos, but yes it is a 5th wheel attached to a Chevy Blazer.

You might see it, but the rest of us can't.
