Is this an old image? I've seen images LIKE this before, but not this one specifically. Oddly, they've all been on Fords too. I don't want to be "that guy" who posts something like this when the image has been out there for many years. [emoticon]

How much tongue weight do you think he had? This is what I preach to people about towing big trailers behind big truck campers with long overhangs. I've noticed that a trailer that normally would have 1000 lbs of tongue weight now has 2000 lbs when you have a 48" extension.

Notice too that it's a fairly late-model F450 with the newer 6.7L motor, so I'm thinking it's at least a 2012 or newer.

Looks like different truck, but the same problem. I got this image several years ago and some members remember the story behind it.
Than even truck has different paint, the camper and trailer seem to be the same.
Can you say Photoshop?

Notice the background in each photo. One is in a residential area the other appears to in a rural setting. Utility trailer and camper appear to be the same. You are correct, different colors on truck.

Seeing may not always be "believing"?

Yeah, something just not right. TC identical and trailer identical right down to decal on door. But truck lower panels different and background different, buildings and trees vs open plains. But I saw it on the internet! [emoticon]

In Kayteg's picture the truck is further off the road. The guy driving has a different colored shirt.

The camper and trailer are definitely the same though I do see what looks like a cord hanging in the cabover window in Rob's pic. Also I'm not sure what the thing is on the camper roof by the railing or if it would have shown up in the Kayteg photo.

I can't imagine why anyone would doctor a photo in that specific way or why there are not "originals" with the same camera angle.

I'm thinking it's possible the poor guy suffered the same fate on his replacement truck.
