The problem is not always the rig

These pictures were in my in-box this morning and may have been around before but they are stunning to say the least.

I think he needs a slider hitch, he'll never get backed into a campsite with that short of a turning radius.

What could go wrong. You never know what you might find traveling this great country and that looks like an accident waiting to happen.

He probably put the chain on the gate because the first 4x4 on the 2" hitch shattered.

Bad idea to use a gooseneck on a 5er.

I think I'm more impressed with the brakes since he has it stitting on hill. I wonder if he installed his own trailer brake in cab as well

Naw, you can't see it in the picture, but I'll bet before he parks on a hill, he has the wife hop out a put a brick behind one of the trailer tires.

You know, we can all laugh at Rednecks all we want, but if you just want to get'er'done, just ask a 'Neck to come up with a solution. Good ole American ingenuity!!!
