This is a great photo.  To the 58 guys, what's with the back bumper on the wagon?  Downturned exhaust and no bumper outlet?  Can't remember ever seeing this before.

I see lots of color coordinated rigs nowadays, so these scheme trends is nothing new. Would like to see the camper mimicking the sweespear lines of the car

I had to google this.  I need one! This example sounds like it's struggling:  

  

I worked for Oldsmobile when these came out and thought they were pretty slick.  This dose sound like it belongs in a horror movie though.  What I heard was they made the car heavy but that was pre oil embargo.

Looks like too much weight at the trailer tongue

 

Likely the coil springs on the wagon...

The boat trailer wheels look like they are straining too. Fiberglas boats are not all that light either.
