I think that's it!! Even though it's a lightweight TT it's sure too much to be safe IMHO!

Too bad you didnt take a picture of his hitch setup. He doesnt even have towing mirrors. And those are an easy pulling tt, with the right setup it might surprise you.
The things i hate seeing are the ones who just drop there trailer on the hitch ball and think there ok because they have a suv.... meanwhile its swaying all over the road with its headlight pointing at the stars while driving ulta slow. I stay clear of those ones on the road. This guy i would just laugh at, give him a thumbs up and then stay clear of him, lol.

I'm betting he had it set up at Cam Am in Canada. They take small TVs, and heavily modify them to tow heavier trailers

Heavy Modification? Stiffer frame, larger brakes, add ladder cross members to a unibody, change out suspension etc. etc?

I wonder how much of the vehicle they rebuild?

This could be the next big Reality Show!!!

They dont rebuild anything. All they do is reinforce the hitch, add a trans/oil cooler, change tires if needed and setup the wdh and sway control. There secret is matching the right tv and trailer together. They pair alot of minivans and full sized sedans with expensive airstreams and very ayrodynamic tt. I drive by them everyday.
If the above was one of theres, it would of had tow mirrors on it.

Most mini vans have a manufacturer's tow rating of 3,500 lbs. Most fancy expensive leaky A/S trailers weigh 7,000 to 9,000 lbs.

Just saying
