I don't see the connection to Can Am. They are a respected business that depends on word of mouth and repeat customers to stay in business. They are subject to litigation for anything that they recommend and implement.

This video is just a stunt to try to sell a car.

The connection is by CanAm, Tom!

It's that yellow thing between the tug and the trailer, though I agree that one can't see the Special Magic Hardware in/under the car that makes it all possible...

P.S.

Do please take note of the Forum Subsection this..."discussion" is posted in.

And here I was thinking that those, um, aerodynamic trailers had aluminum bodies. Fiberglass? Really? I had no idea.

Oh, and will your husband be driving the 'oversize load' lead vehicle with a pole, to make sure you can pass under the electric lines and overpasses?

The very idea....

That there's jen-you-wine molded fiberglass, I'll have you know- first one out of the mold at the world-famous Humongous Trailer Works in Bakeoven, Oregon.

I've named it "Tiny", and will soon be posting a mod thread on the olympic-size swimming pool project I've undertaken up front (must take care to keep any extra water weight ahead of the axles, after all).

Francesca
Oh Francesca ! I do so stand corrected ,of course you would only have molded fiberglass( remember folks "never been sighted" )
Humongous Trailer Works in Bakeoven, Oregon you say must be a new company jen-you-wine you say ? I must try some of that "jen-you-wine" when I sight you out camping after you put in your pool.I do love to swim and now that I have begged your forgiveness..surely I will be included on your guest list.

Smile A Very Similar Tow

That trailer looks suspiciously like something designed and built in Everett, WA. Well, here is a JEEP and a So Cal product:

Beware of emergency landings - 405 The Movie - YouTube

WARNING: A bird flies toward the end, but I still think the video is funny.

And this is without a towbar.

Here is a link on YouTube to 5th gear setting up and pulling the the 747

Fifth Gear: VW Touareg Tows A 747 - YouTube

Probably a lot like the setup for Toyota towing the shuttle.

Jason

PS; And a little bonus for you Duramax folks http://youtu.be/k62gW3Se5e0

Towing the 747 is one thing, stopping it is another! Thrust reversers rule!

So I found this video over in one of the other forums I frequent. It was posted in the same discussion as a member who tows a 16' Bambi AirSteam with his new Golf. Here is the thread BTW He does have a WDH, but I'm not sure which one.

Practical Caravan - Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI review - YouTube

Well he must be OK, afterall: A) world renound CanAm did the hitch and gave it's blessings and The owner stated that he "Tested" it for sway in an empty parking lot and C) It's his first tow ,so he doesn't have to know what's right.....

My question: How did he get up to a towing speed of 100kph AND have an 18 wheel semi pass him at 130 kpm, so he could do a real world sway evaluation in that parking lot?????

My suggestion would be to ban further towing capacity discussions.
