It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

What looks like a homemade dually rear end on the truck, tells me this driver rarely accepts "NO" for an answer.

Would love to see the unloading process.

Must be moving to a new "base" point.

You sure a truck towing a boat didn't rear end the mh?

Depending on the size of that truck, That might just work.. I can see a "Frame" on the truck where you basically pull the boat trailer up on the same kind of ramp you'd use to load a ATV, tie it down, then when you unhook the "Twoed" you 'Winch" the trailer back to ground (Same ramps) hook it to the truck and do a normal launch.

Of course you need a good size truck, A Ford F-350 can have a 10,000 pound package if you order it that way.

Well, if you look at the picture closely you can see a duel wheel base on the back wheels of the truck so it might be able to handle it but the weight distribution is clearly off with most of the weight on the back of the truck, you can see the bed tilting back, I hope he has good shocks.
