Just In Case The 5.0 Isn't Big Enough

I ran across SpaceCraft MFG, a manufacturer of non fiberglass trailers & tractors that includes a 57', 6 slide 5th wheel designed to be pulled by a semi tractor.

Take a look to see what the other end of scale looks like!

Hi: Vermilye... I always figured next tug I'd get a semi tractor to pull "Escape Hatch II". Then I'd have that extra little bit of power for the long haul!!! Alf

Yes. I'll probably go for the turkey over the ham...

Everyone have a great Christmas!

I'd bet you have to get an oversized load permit to tow it...

While these things are huge (check to their Hauler) here is my favorite towing photo. This boat is kept on Lake Powell. It must have been interesting getting it there.
