He wanted a little bit of action. Not like he had to pay for it or anything.

Hope the outfit  had good insurance if it  was mine he bought him a RV,dumb @$# trying to pull a 40,000 lb rv out hooking on to a 10,000 lb hitch. The owner had to call for that ,the roadside assist people will not tow you out of anything over 150 ft from a hard surface . 

We got stuck in sand and the service that came to us never hooked on to the RV they had the air pads they slide under the rv to raise it and put down carpet runners and I backed out under my own power for 350 ft that was $500.00 well spent looking at that video

There's enough dumb dumb disease to go around on this one including the RV owner. Those were never meant to be driven like a dune buggy. Next time stay on the road.

Yea it was  more than 150 ft the owner hired those guys and that may have been a 5000 lb hitch lol I doubt the owners insurance repairs the damage, that wasn't a heavy tag axle under the RV so it was probably around 30,000 lbs.Youtube will cost that guy in the long run,the 8v92 sounded good in the military wrecker though

They make snatch straps that will handle farm equipment but they don't hook them to some flimsy bit of receiver hitch.  Big farm equipment can be optioned with heavy cables leading under the unit and back to the frame.

This guy also has a tv show called Diesel Brothers. He has more money than God.  He recently bought a Black hawk Helicopter and got his License to fly it. He has been around awhile and is also a big you-tube influencer. Has a big following. He is always doing interesting things and will probably buy the owner a new bus or fix this one. He does a lot of ones that they screw up but I think that is why some people watch his videos, LOL

But they survived and have cleaned up their act.

Given where the bus was stuck it would have probably taken an entire team of normal wreakers tied to each other to get it out.
