Wow that is pretty cool. To be able to turn your vehicle around like that and not have any damage done to the RV or the TV is amazing.

BAD idea IMO. So, you have about 6 inches of clearance it looks like? So what happens when you are on an up or downslope and you hear a horrible scraping noise comming from yuor roof? Plus, I don't know if I trust all that weight being pulled by the 4 roof members.

It is pretty cool but I don't think I would want that much weight over my head!

WOW!!!

I guess it didn't "make it" since that ad is from 1958 and I have never heard of it before. Maybe better in theory than in practice??

Did you see that guy blindly park that RV? I figured we see him drive right into the lake since he's driving blind...

Thats a funny video, similar to that VW one that I saw earlier today. Definitely a later model Suby than 58 though... I wonder why they never put these campers, or the towing methods into production? Safety reasons I'd assume?
