Easy enough to jack it up using cribbing, back under and lower it onto the deck.

Probably used a fork lift.

I repeat, it's a fake! Otherwise, explain how the truck is still sitting level when that amount of weight is directly over the rear axle?

The tires are easily aired-down to appear to be supporting the load. How do you explain the truck sitting level under the load?

I think it is time for the OP To enlighten us. I think the photo is real as the shadow under the rigs looks authentic for the totally overcast day.

There is generally more clearance between the deck and the tires. This is so there is still clearance when a load is placed on the deck. If the deck went down much more the springs would be on the stops.

The deck is normally sloped forward when empty so it comes to level with a load on it.

Yes, but 20,000# directly over and behind the rear axle should have raised the front considerably.

Agree if the CG of the coach was behind the wheels but IMO the CG is in front of the wheels.
