    Probably one the MOST important things for you to remember when first entering a CG is be sure to utilize proper CG etiquette ... and of course , this DOES include that when entering the CG ... pulling in properly ... [:O]
    So , for all you that are not quite sure how NOT to pull into the CG , please watch the following and pay REAL close attention so you will be sure not to make the same mistake(s) ... [LOL]

    ( after all , you don't want any of your new CG neighbors to have to be rushed to the county morgue after they die from laughing , now do you ? [LOL] )

    ( bet if you close , you'll notice how he doesn't seem to have to much tongue weight there ... [:)C] )

    Wow- towing bass-ackwards! Must have been a unique coupler mount design. Let's hope driver was on the way to a dealer to have a proper fifth wheel hitch installed.

    Oh yeah, driver will need a new pickup in order to have a fifth wheel hitch. This is a good illustration of just how desperate the housing shortage is in the NoDak oil and gas fields.

    He looks to have negative tongue weight. A very unstable rig there.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    And the sad reality is, they probably don't know its unsafe, and nothing will ever happen to them.

    For the rest of us? Darwin's standing on the door step just waiting to make an example of you.

    If you CAN follow the link and see the video, do that, and don't read this post. Pretend it doesn't exist.

    But if you CAN'T watch the video, then put your cursor over the next few lines to highlight them and read a basic description of the video.

    The video shows an SUV towing a fifth wheel trailer. The trailer is turned around backwards. The trailer has two axles, but still, the hitch of a fifth wheel is supposed to be supported by a pickup truck bed. This one is just hanging free in the air. The back bumper of the trailer is hitched to the back bumper of the SUV somehow. The video isn't very clear on how they're coupled, but it appears to be a conventional hitch on the SUV with some sort of nonstandard coupler on the back bumper of the trailer. The back of the SUV is very high up in the air, indicating that the off-balance trailer is pulling the SUV's rear bumper up. The video just shows the crazy rig driving across a gas station parking lot, at a reasonably slow speed.
