We saw this on Interstate 94 just East of St. Paul, MN.? The truck has Missouri plates.? That would be a long, scary drive rigged up like this...

Perfectly legal as long as his GVWR is not exceeded.

...and the load is secured properly.  I'd think a state trooper would be interested in stopping him to check that out!  :eek:

Found On Road Dead? ?;D ??? ;) ??? ;D

I thought it was Fix Or Repair Daily  ...

but anyway don't say that, considering about 90% of the MH's I'm looking at are Ford chassis and I will probably end up with one!  :p ::) :-\ :)

First On Race Day  At least it could pull it.  If it were a GMC  (Gods Mechanical Crap) it would broke down along side of the road.    LOL  Rather push a Ford than Drive a Chev.

Now that is what I call planning ahead. Get caught in a flash flood, migrate to the boat behind the trailer, if it gets really deep, migrate to one on top the truck ::)

Weight is one thing.....risk of overturning is quite another.  I'd think it is very high.......

I took a closer look at that picture,  There are special lift/support arms in the bed of the pickup to raise and lower the upper boat/trailer, it appears this is a special truck customized for delivering boats to dealers.

So, how do they get it down... Hydralically that is how

Speaking of getting thigs up/down,  Harbor Freight (For those who shop there) has a 12 ton Hydralic jack, this unit is hooked up to use a manual pump in the tradition of bottle jacks or Air over Hydralic in the manner of a shop jack.  I'm interested since an 8 ton will pick up my rig but you need more muscle than I have, and I have a fair amount

Air, I have 150PSI of
