Who needs a 5th wheel when you could have this?

In case you need some help envisioning your next project:

Interesting. Seems the more powerful modern Beatles would pull it even easier.

Saw one of the originals two weeks ago in Orlando, opening night of the US tour. Still a powerful performer! Didn't know there was a more modern version.

That's funny I feel the same way. Guys can come up with some crazy creative things but sometimes don't get the chance cause they have that DW in their ear saying "your not gonna do that, are you?". Lol

I would like to own that 1974 VW and camper configuration.

I wonder what the price of it was back then.

Also, did you see how the VW was squatting in the back? Need some additional suspension support in my opinion.

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

Yea Wayne it would be cool for someone to build that today with the advancements in materials from the 60s and use of aluminum and plastic seems the trailer could be made pretty light and a modern VW bug has more power. Sure seems feasible.
