Note the nice 4x4 post with wood pin, the s-hook chains, the front tires and the wonder of it all!

That's either a joke on us or an accident just waiting to happen!

You just don't understand the setup.
Once he and the missus take their seats up front to head out the whole thing levels out.

That means it's a weight distributing tail gate.

Hmmmmm... so from what I am seeing here... I could go ahead and get the Scamp fifth wheel and just modify the Amigo to haul it around... come to think of it... the top does come off the Amigo so maybe I can work that into the modification...

On second thought... I think I will just keep what I got!!

Donna, I don't think they are camping - My guess is that they are living in that thing and just move from camp ground to campground late at night when everyone else is home sleeping.

I would think the State Police would pull them over because of the hazard they present to every one and every thing around them. A 18 wheeler passing at high speed should make all that crap go sailing like a pile of leaves in a wind storm.

As far as the new 5th wheel station wagon - Takes the definition of Tailgater to the extreme limit.

What's interesting about the station wagon is that the guy has successfully negated the usual advantage of a 5W hitch by installing the plate well behind the rear axle, making it back into a standard hitch arrangement albeit with a different coupler system.

It looks pretty good to me. Unfortunately, I think he's forgotten the most important accessory: the roof rocking chair!
