Default whats the most ridiculous trailering situation you have ever seen ???

Wondering what was the most ridiculous towing situation you have seen ?? ME:

1. I saw a 28 foot twin engine cruiser being towed w/ a dodge dakota, the rear bumper was dragging on the ground.

2. saw a 23 foot bow rider being towed w/ a kia sportage, stick no less.. He said u-haul installed the hitch and he was o.k.

3.Saw a 38 foot cig being towed w/ a nissan pathfinder, atleast he had a weight distribution hitch..

4. last weekend saw a 32 foot twin cruiser being towed w/ chevy 1500 boat and trailer must have been well over 12K.

In South Dakota I saw a guy towing a 28 foot travel trailer with an F 350 dually......

And he had a 22-23 foot boat hooked to the travel trailer

Whole rig must have been almost 70 feet long and he passed me doing about 80 with both trailers crabbing in different directions, guy had some serious stones.

Yup, saw that on another thread..

Guess if we did get that gun last year I would have been o.k. w/ my f-150 and would not have had to upgrade the tow vehicle..

I bought a 201 Liberator from a guy who towed it with a Mustang GT with a stick. There was a big cloud of smoke from the clutch burning when he retrieved it and he said he went through 2 clutches during the one summer he had it.

Saw this guy at a local launch ramp that rigged, or shall I say engineered this dual double-decker jet ski trailer. So imagine your typical, run-of-the-mill side-by-side jet ski trailer with another one welded on top of it, not so ingeniously mind you. He was pulling it with a Honda Civic.

So de dunks the trailer, gets the bottom two skis off, gets out, and backs up further to dunk the top two......Only problem was that by this time, he was almost door deep in water with his car.

He goes to pull up the ramp, front wheels start spinning, backwards he goes.

I wish I had a camera.

LMAO!

Second worst trailering scenerio:

Anyone with an H2 pulling anything.

I hate to see people scratching up their chrome tow equipment.
