I would think that "Towing, Hitching, Axles and Running Gear" are pretty serious topic when it come to trailers and this might be a better fit under "Jokes."

I've seen this picture before, that has to be a Kentucky license plate.

They must have been using the European tow ratings.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

I was going to suggest that it is way over-engineered and the tug seems much too big, heavy and clumsy. They would likely get terrible mileage unless they downsize to a Citroen 2CV as a TV! (based on the European Tow ratings, they could do it!)

I don't see what the problem is! My Geo pulls my Hitchhiker just fine. I just screwed the ball into the roof. What's everybody upset about?

Why not use a Smart car? They have a towing capacity, (500 lb).

Here's a pic of a smart car towing and passing us in a friends F450...to be fair we had a 37' trailer fully loaded but it's fun to bring it up with him from time to time
