With the way the bed on the carrier works I would love to see the skids on the rear of the MH or the pavement gouges.

Aren't the "tags" the only rear tires that are on the flatbed in that pic?.
(if so, the rear dually tires are supporting nothing).

As a Southwind owner, this makes us all look bad.

As I see it, you guys all missed the biggest faux pas!

There is a cargo door open! My guess is the wet tanks access. Imagine the embarrassment when the slinky falls out!

"Now Orville, ya gotta remember to tap the brakes jest before ya turn the corner".
I called a scrap dealer to pick up a derelict Plymouth Fury, he showed up with an old 3/4 ton under a beaver tail flat deck. He winched that car up and headed off down the road without even a tie down strap, I have no idea if he made his destination without being pulled over and I didn't want to know.

Here, hold my beer and watch this!
Actually it is photo shopped -first clue, roll-on wrecker is sitting level with the load of the MH over rear wheels. Second clue, rear tires are not squatted as under a load. Third clue, shadow of wrecker and MH is short on both ends.
