That is scary. Not as scary as some of the things I have seen on the internet.

Some people just want to die in a fiery crash, and they will take right thinking normal people with them.

If I was a LEO I would pull him over and cite him in a heart beat for operating an unsafe vehicle. I sure as He.. would not follow him down the road.

No doubt. ^^^^

Towing can be sketchy enough just trying to avoid the people that have never towed anything in their lives that cut you off and slam on their brakes.

Everytime I tow its an OCD routine for me. Double and triple check ALL connections. Hitch pin, the ball, safety chains crossed, light connection, signal function and hub temp before i leave and whenever I stop. I wouldn't say Im uncomfortable towing but do have a very heightened awareness of what I'm doing the entire time.

Knowing that a contraption like that could be the difference between making it home or not would make my OCD level shoot off of the charts. Heck, just knowing that stuff like that is ok with some people makes me not wanna leave the house.

I can't say I have ever even considered a hitch like that but I have done some crazy stuff "years" ago that I would never consider today.

Back in the early 90's my father in law gave me his old international dump truck he no longer needed. At the time I was only about 21 years old and did not have much but I had just bought my house and needed to do some lane restoration and move some dirt around the property. I had no way of getting the dump truck home by myself and could not afford the wrecker bill. I borrowed my buddy and his 72 Blazer and my FIL's next door neighbor had a dual wheel single axle trailer he let me borrow. We hooked the trailer to the blazer and loaded this 6 wheel dump on it and headed out for the 25 mile trip. What a trip it was lol 21 miles per hour was fine, if you messed up and went 22 miles per hour it was like you were a side winder snake going thru the desert. Was never so happy to get that rig off the road. I did not even own a camera at the time but here are pictures of everything at a later date. The international on a better trailer on its way to the scrap yard, The blazer after years of neglect (I own it now in dry storage) and the trailer I used to haul the dump being used to haul my ex wifes horse shed back to her parents place :lol:
