Not me. This is a YouTube video of extreme off-roading with a trailer.

I would definately throw in a couple of come-alongs and some long cable.

Well, it's getting the skid plates put on at the moment. Actually the poor thing is sitting in Wisconsin going "I was being built in a nice warm shop this time last year."

No, 'ell NO. I'd rather go in on a dirt bike, take pictures, come back to my trailer and sit around the campfire rather than needing to work on my rig because I shook the poor thing to death. YMMV

Extreme silliness, if you ask me. A great way to wreck good equipment. Definitely not to be attempted without at least one reserve vehicle (which they did have) to bail out the main rig.

Looking at how they bottomed the tongue out several times reminded me of the time when, as a teenager, I got a big John Deere 4230 tractor stuck by pulling a disk straight across a small ditch. The rear tires were at the bottom and the disk tongue was hung up on the top. Dad had to dig with a shovel to get the hitch pin pulled out, pull the tractor out & around, yank the disk backward with a chain, and then we hooked up again. I was so embarrassed. There's no way I'd take chances like those with my travel trailer.

That's a Man Camper. Everything inside is probably bolted down especially the door to the frig where the beer is. Did you see the outboard on the hitch? And it is obvious who the sponsor is.

Michael:

Didn't you put the tires down? Did all the fall work and hauling with a 8600. All the ditches would change from Spring to Fall. Had to watch not to bury the snouts on the corn head.

I admit to taking my little trailer down some dirt roads where I probably shouldn't have taken it but at least I turned around. I assume that the Australian equivalent of Good Sam emergency road service costs more than $80 and uses helicopters.

Why is it that every time I buy a used car, these guys had it first.

Plenty of ways to have fun without destroying equipment! I'm not impressed with the Land Cruiser, a lot of wheel spinning. Might be a good idea to sound the water before driving in and stalling. I agree that someone else is probably footing the bill. I like the Goodyear Wranglers on the trailer ;-)

Common sense - Some people have it, some don't.
