What is it? It's an ACCIDENT waiting to happen!!!

OK, they removed the gooseneck and added an a-frame hitch (with storage attached, no less) I'd love to see how the a-frame is attached, given that piece of chain holding it to the gooseneck!!

Edit-second look, i guess those are the safety chains, but given the rest of the mod, why did they bother?!?!?!

Well... they have the old style DC on it.. LOL

It's amazing the front of the camper does not hit the car or truck....

The tongue weight on this ball hitch one would think is very high.

Ideally this one retrun back to the goose neck concept.

I'm very glad to see they at least left the mounting parts for the gooseneck. Hopefully they have all the parts too. I bet they did this to pull behind a small car, not an SUV, but that storage in the front still looks questionable.

I'm not a structural/machanical engineer, but I can't help but think that all that unsupported (supported when on the gooseneck) weight of the overhang bouncing up and down is putting an awful lot of torque on the "uprights" of the front frame.
