A strange TV

Saw this at the CG we are in. I would not go to town with it.

I'm wondering if that was put on a cab chassis or a extended frame. The turning radius must be limmited as DarMar stated.
Thanks for sharing

We were parked next to the lady that owns this at the Winery in Pahrump,NV. If I remember correctly she has an auxiliary fuel tank and a storage box in the bed of the truck and thought the truck must almost be overweight before hooking up the fifthwheel

Charlie, weight concern is exactly what I was thinking. I can't imagine what this has done to the curb weight and the GVWR assuming this was elongated limo style. I would guess this Dodge is overweight for sure and I'm not sure the engine and trans will be the only issues. When limosines are elongated they don't have to worry about towing a Cedar Creek. Even shoring up the middle to prevent breakage will add more weight and thereby affect towing and carrying capacities.

Let's talk about never being concerned about safety, I hope I'm never around this thing.
