Unbelievable Towing Video; Australia

This makes my back-road mountain forest service road forays look like a circle in the Walmart parking lot.



It is worth the time to watch this!

New meaning for boondocking. I don't imagine that they have much glass items in the camper.

Doesn't have to worry about sway, and I see he has two spares mounted to that bumper,no bike rake though guess it's no a "lite unit"

Well, you notice that they DID have quite a bit of support; other vehicles, winches, towing cables, etc. Nevertheless, the Aussies ARE crazy!
