    Should there be a caution to, "Slow, Slowly,..." in that caption somewhere ??

    or is that just some really brilliant packing,

    maybe fine tuned, while waiting for the wife and kids to be "ready to go?"

    Some states don't let you have a trailer off a vehicle you are towing, or this guy is trying to save on ferry/barge tickets. Good one though.

    Wow never thought of that before. Is it true that here in the AK you can use your truck to tow your camper thats towing your boat? Just wondering... "fishon"

    Trailer brakes might have prevented that

    There is a guy in the neighborhood my dad lives in that does the same thing, just a bit differently. He has ramps that attach to the back of his large aluminum boat and he drives his little truck up onto the back of his boat and tows it all with a motor home. Have to get a photo of that contraption if I see it around.

    Seems like the weight of that boat would overload the truck for sure. Most pickups can only carry about 3K lbs (less really) before they are overweight... not sure I would want to slam on the brakes on that motor home.
