    It's meant to look authentic, it's not real

    Too bad, that would be an awesome hauler to tow your hot rod trailer :-)

    Why imitate when you can have the real thing.
    Most call it a Holland junior uses the standard 2" king pin and has a 40,000 lb rating
    Approximately 18" by 20 inches weighs about a 3rd of a full size fifth wheel.

    The little Economac is a really cool looking rig.
    Hard to tell from the pics but it does look as if there is a drive shaft to the rear axle making it a true tandem set.
    Lots of guys do this by using part of a NP205 transfer case. this give them a lockable power divider the Nose cone on a Ford 9" can be replaced with a plate machined to fit then made into a housing for the gears and spiders of the 205 . I've never done one but I had always wanted to take a 203 and a 205 and marry them to make a 3 speed transfer
