Would you haul your boat like this???????

Saw this in an advertisement today and it just looked wrong to me. Would you haul your boat and a truck this way behind a Class A RV?

I saw one like that yesterday except that the whole boat was elevated, not just the back end.

It would make me uneasy seeing my MC on the 2nd story of a trailer or at an angle like that.

I guess I'd sure want to make sure the bilge was well-drained first.

That's a light-weight aluminum boat, but here's 2 questions:

1) How well does the fuel stay in the gas tank without running out of the vent opening.
2) Are those small blue tie-down straps the only thing keeping that boat from going forward into the RV?

The first DD inboard I purchased was delivered sitting on its own trailer ON TOP of a chevy crew cab dually with a rack-type structure on top on it. He was also pulling a 27' go-fast boat behind the truck! Came from Wisconsin to NJ like that, driver said he got 4 mpg (454 in truck).
They still deliver boats that way today.

Really now I don't know which I would worry about the most if it was my rig. The boat getting wrecked sliding into the RV or the RV getting ruined by the boat sliding into it.
