I thought I would share this you guys. I passed this old Chrysler much like my father drove towing a trailer. I slowed down while passing and couldn't believe the setup this fellow was using. Check it out.

I think he needs air shocks! Just proves the old adage, "Where there is a will, there is a way".

We measured one of these once on a bet, it was longer and wider than a 1975 F250 4-door with an 8ft box! Cool!
He could stand to raise the hitch to balance those trailer axles.

I would not have believed it without the pictures. I thought the 5th wheel hitch was supposed to go be placed over the rear axle, not behind it.

All I thought as I passed the old Newport was "Does it have a Hemi" LOL Probably all the towing power you could ask for.

I guess he didn't want to remove the back window. That would have been too redneck.
