check out this rig!

Saw this bad-boy sitting at a Cracker Barrel in Kentucky on my last trip to Gatlinburg.

Don't miss the Smart Car on the back of the tractor, and the Harley Ultra-Classic on that trailer thing-y on the back of the 5'ver.

That trailer thingy was pretty cool. It had two big caster setups and had no pivot between it and the 5'ver (except for up/down). From a backing-up standpoint, it was like it wasn't even there.

I think he can do with a bigger camper. Looks relatively small compared to the tow vehicle.

Maybe he doesn't want to be ostentatious?

YEP definately TV envy going on.



Imagine if he forgot to strap the Lil Tikes vehicle on the back securely/ His TV wouldn't even notice it fall off. Be like hitting a small piece of rock on the roadway.

This may be the other extreme, a one man teardrop. Saw it at my dealer.

I would pimp that. Maybe a rhino instead of the bike though.

I think if I saw this guy, I would go over and ask to join FRF. He is already a topic here.

I would like to follow behind him when he pulls into some of our state parks, to see how many limbs and trees get scrubbed.
