That's what the ad says. Anybody have any ideas as to how this could possibly work?

If an early or FC driveline were removed, the axles could possibly be slid back into that cross tube, and possibly the hole on the end would attach to the motor mount hole.
I'm just guessing here, feel free to correct me.

I was twisting and turning the pic as well, when I first saw it.

I wouldn't be going down the highway or any road towing anything with that.

Joel,

I happen to know someone who as an older truck like this. However, it does not look as nice as this one does.
But it might some day. Grin

I had a bad thought yesterday. I'll bet that even though an Ultravan will fit on it I won't be able to use it because of the height. I think 13'6" is the limit and the bed is around 4' high.

Taking the tires off after loading may buy you some room.

Looks like a UV is 8' tall so even with the truck your aren't as tall as my motorhome.

I hope so. Both of mine have A/C which adds about a foot I believe.

If needed. Unplug wires, or cut where you can add in a plug for next time and two bolts remove the AC.

Just deflating the tires will give you 4-5 inches.

I just measured it. My Ultra is 9'2" to the top of the A/C and the hauler bed is 45" so I'm fine if my math is good. 12'11"

Interstates will be fine, just watch for older gas stations on two lane highways. I'm usually very careful about that, but when you are tired and low on fuel things happen. Two years ago I had an attendant run out in front of me waving his arms and pointing up to a 12' roof. My Bad, got to back up with the tow dolly. Other than that OK, he told me how to get to the next closest station.

This thing is my newest best friend.
