What is really scary is how many more similar videos are offered for view after that one.

I think the more important question is... Can you get mirror extensions as wide as that trailer?

All he needs to balance the load is a Smartcar hanging on front bumper.

Best guesstimate is gvwr of 30k lbs. x .15 = 4500 lbs tongue weight. Ummmmm. Scary stuff.

Probably doesn't have a brake controller either.

Thanks.
