Since that coach is a Class C with the cab/engine removed, the rear axle to way too far back to ever have a chance of being balanced like a real trailer. Total FAIL in all respects. If the conversion was made more like a 5th wheel then MAYBE.

Title should be:
You can't fix stupid!

What?

"It is under the GCWR, so it has to be ok!"

Or, "I tow more than that with a 4 cyl Ranger!"

I'm usually pretty anti weight police but that just makes me want to slash the Jeeps tires. There's dangerous, then there's this.

And, looking at the quality of the finish work that went into closing the front of the RV I bet I'd pass out seeing the welds holding that tongue together.
