When I first glanced at this, my eyes automatically went to the mud flap at the rear, expecting to see drag wheels or something. Maybe a little tag axle.

What keeps the front wheels on the ground? ......especially if someone walks to the rear.

It probobly comes with an anchor kit, like an airplane, to tie the front end down while parked?

If you look carefully at the rear section of the RV, it is already delaminating in a big way. Perhaps when the rear gets bad enough, you snip it off and keep going like a cheap razor cutter???

I'm guessing this severe of an overhang doesn't do much for containing structural twist and bend. I would be willing to bet delamination is directly tied into body twist and bend quotients.

Maybe that mud flap is stiffer than it looks.

I always wonder how that kind of leverage affects the tongue weight on a tandem axle trailer. It can't be good and it probably exceeds the limits of the hitch at least for a few seconds when transitioning.
