It might work if you didn't have to go over 10 mph and didn't have to stop fast. Oh, yes, and, if your point of destination wasn't over a mile or two.

All he has to do to make it right is move a little weight behind the duals on that there trailer.

If he gets too much weight behind the duels the trailer will wig-wag...

And that is worse than what he has now..........???
It makes me laugh to think that someone could be .....
could do something like that and believe it would work.

I am no engineer but I would have built a platform on the roof to hold that trailer BETWEEN the axles of that chevy. At least that way when it broke I could walk away clean.

OH MY GOD !! wtf Shocked Shocked I don't believe that setup. He had to have done it for a bet...surely. No man in his right mind would set up a towing hitch for a gooseneck on the tailgate of a 4WD.

That is a Ford Bronco isn't it? The earlier model Bronco doesn't have a real good name here in Oz. I know of one that literally broke in half on one of our outback roads in the Far North.

I gotta send a copy of these pics to a mate...he works in an area where they do legislation for tow hitches, goosenecks and fifth wheelers.

Cheers, Vince

No Vince, that's a Chevy S10 Blazer. Maybe he could try some overload springs. I think I would've tried using a 2 wheel car-hauler setup with the 5th wheel mount rigged up on it before trying something like that.
