Saw this setup the other day----interesting!

We saw this setup the other day, in a Walmart parking lot.

Don't know how legal it might be or how weight-smart.....but it sure caught our attention!

Tow vehicle is a Toyota Venza.

Looks like the weight of the overhead is sufficiently supported and distributed. Someone actually put on their engineer's thinking cap for the design of the tongue structure.

Wonder what the tongue weight is? If it isn't too much it would make a option to not use a truck, but rather a larger SUV.

It's undoubtedly more than 350 pounds, the Venza's rating, hence the WDH. There's a big box on the back, which probably helps, but not great for stability.

I agree with KC that this one appears better thought out than other bumper-pull mods I've seen.

Is it just the camera angle, or does the loft look shorter than stock?

It may be an illusion from the way the pinstriping is done. Not sure but I can say for sure I've never seen a round window...

Not sure, looks like there might be an A/C above the propane tanks. Could be something else.
