    I understand that, that's why my 10' & 16' have the axles farther back and longer tongues than you'll see on most trailers.

    Still, practice helps! Even with the little Snowco in my first post. ~~ grnspot110

    Has anyone ever seen anything like this? Makes no sense to me...
    Would be MUCH better on a slick, twisty road than a bumper pull ..... maybe the guy kissed the guardrail one too many times w/bumper pull

    Maybe someone had a custom truck with no bumper or hitch and didn't want one, so they put a gooseneck under their bed cover. Just guessing.

    I had an '83 S-10 with the 2.8 V6. What a POS that was, so I was amazed when I saw your post saying you had one of these vintage 'Vega Incarnates' still running around.

    Fairly clever idea. Weren't some guys putting Porsche engines in their bugs back then? If so, that could give the tow vehicle some oomph. If you were wanting to do 360's with that setup, you better undo the safety chains and electrical wire.

    About 15 years back, I was a mechanic in a German shop, one of the guys had a 1955 beetle with a Porshe motor in it. We took it to Tampa from Gainsville, about 2 hour ride, to a Volkswagon show.

    Going 90-110 mph down the interstate in what was supposed to have a 35-40 hp motor passing VW enthusiasts along the way. The looks on their face was priceless.
