The video was recorded in 1974. I remember seeing fifth wheel camper
trailer ads from back then with hitches mounted on car roofs. As I
recall they were the same size as the big fifth wheels of today that
are being towed around with trucks.
Roof towing with cars was short lived. There must have been some
serious issues with safety. Bet the lawyers had a field day with them.
You would need one big roll cage built into the cars passenger
compartment to support the hitch. Too bad, it was a good idea. If
nothing else they would have made some good action movie footage.
