    Default 1974 VW & Camper

    It's actually kind of neat. The 360 ability looks like it would have been handy when maneuvering the trailer.

    I'd like to see him do the 360 degree thing with the safety chains installed! Otherwise, pretty cool!

    I was thinking the same thing about the trailer wiring.

    Having owned a VW bug in the past, I'd say they have exceeded the safe towing weight by 10x. Clever though.

    This was posted awhile back on iboats forum. The consensus there was: one wreck or even a panic stop, and that thing would come lose off the rain gutter and that camper would climb up the back of the v-dub. I agree it is kind of cool, in a weird way, but there is no way I would tow it.
