Station wagon pulling 5th wheel trailer

Some time ago I saw on the web a photo of an old model car or station wagon pulling a 5th-wheel camper using a hitch mounted on the car's roof. Now I can't find it. Has anyone else seen the pic? I'd love to send it to some guys I camp with.

I think the one the OP wants is the one where the guy took a Chevy S10 Blazer mini SUV, attached a fifth-wheel hitch to the tailgate, and then towed a vintage fiver. Is this it?

Towing Too Much

Is this the one you are thinking of?




And there was one of an Olds Toranado with a low profile 5er hitch over the top of the cabin...but I cannot find it.

Actually, that's not the one I saw. But it's very cool nonetheless! Thanks for posting it. I think the one I saw was a Mopar product.

I guess it's hard to keep a good idea down.

If I saw any of them going down the highway I would cut them a wide path-they don't even look safe.
