Default You can't make stuff like this up

We were camped in a county campground about 30 miles outside of Ontario Colorado, when this rig showed up........

The unloading, setup, and reloading would wear me out!

Easy...

You just back into the ramp in high speed,
then hit the brakes real hard...

I saw something similar in Mammoth Lakes CA. The guy had a side by side 4 wheeler on a ramp that went over the cab. Pretty cool and well executed arrangement.

On TDY near Montrose Co

I've seen a boat on trailer attached behind a 5th-Wheel camper trailer pulled by a pickup truck. Apparently that is legal in some states.

Actually, this kinda makes sense.

Once you get to the campground, you just leave the camping trailer there, then pin the trailer and boat to the pick-up and go to a remote lake, then come back to the campground for dinner.

But it's still a pretty crazy set-up...

I didn't get a picture but I saw a guy in a state campground a few years ago towing a 5th wheel with a trailer behind which carried a Bass boat with motor, 2 bicycles, 2 ATV vehicles and 2 kayaks and he actually managed to back it into a site. In speaking with him, he was a retired long haul 18 wheeler driver.

B trains aren't legal everywhere, but pray many of those drivers don't need to back up into a spot.

Can't make this up either - it showed up on my Instagram feed the other day. Similar configuration but with less intent behind it (rear-end collision). Via FOX News somewhere in Utah.
