We saw this rig on Thursday morning at Tom Sawyer Campground in West Memphis, Ark. We got back to the campground after the baseball game too late and we were up and gone too early to see and talk to anyone about this rig.
Sometimes we just have to say "HMMMMM"
With 3 connection points to the back of the truck it seems to me like there must be a bunch of tire scrub somewhere.

And they are one of us F.R.O.G.S.:thumbsup:

Looks like (or something similar) to the Automated Safety Hitch. There have been a couple of discussions on the forum about that.

Interesting setup. At first look I thought it was a dolly similar to the ones used by the big rigs when running doubles,but it's a solid extension of the TV. Looks pretty well built,but I agree about the tire scrubbing.

I hope he has that generator locked in securely - looks tempting sitting out in the open like that.

Just checked them out. Very interesting, and it looks like minimal tire scrub with the steerable axle. Great videos.

Wonder if I can use this with my VW to upgrade to a FW.:roflblack:

Hey Bob, nice to see you posting that here. It was nice to meet you at Tom Sawyer's this past week. I meant to get a picture of that setup too but missed out. I have never seen anything like that.

Wow! There is finally a way for me to tow a 5ver with my Excursion.

Cool beans!

I wonder if he is coming to Goshen this year, I could borrow his welder!!

Never mind I think it is a Generator. I just seen Miller and figured it was a welder. I forgot they make generators
