Hi, and yes, it is a very interesting set up, and called a Slimp dolly.
The only issue with them, is silly people think that if their tow vehicle
is running level, they are good to go... however, they end up towing
more weight than should.
Apparently, this is why they are no longer produced...

Like most things, its not the first time someone has commented on this movie, or some of the the details about it.. see posts 4 and 5 of this thread from last year in which they talk about the helper dolly.

Following the thread watch for his numerous posts with pics. I actually met him on the Airstream forum and was so interested in the story I found a copy of the Life Magazine that documented it.
I checked out that forum it was quite interesting but most of the images did not load. Was that my problem or did you find it so also?
