I especially like the way both sides are tapered to allow for sharp turns! Of course you know what most Buick owners say!

Never underestimate the ingenuity of a Redneck. Heck this car might be his/her toad and that's only used to tow the waste tank.

Laughs,

The only thing missing is a few strands of grey Duct Tape, just for good measure.

You have a good point. It is well known that for every wrap of duct tape on a wooden hitch, you gain a pound of tongue weight and 10lbs of towing capacity.

And as long as you have those yellow plastic safety chains on your trailer, you're good to go.

Hey, I made a wooden hitch for my wife's tow vehicle to pull a trailer with.

Of course the "Tow Vehicle" was a battery operated mobility scooter and the "Traliler" a lawn cart she used to take the laundry to the park laundromat with.. Worked great.

Now that she's gone I still use the cart.. But not the scooter.

He made the safety chains out of duct tape.

I'd love to see that thing go down the road at speed, from a safe distance of course!

Woodint 10 turns of Duct Tape increase it to 10,000 pound capacity.

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

I doubt that it went very fast. With the age and size of that fifth wheel I would guess it weighs 10k-15k lbs.
