Pretty impressive that it pulled it out with just the front tires on the ground. I can't believe that trailer is meant for that boat. My Jon boat trailer looks more robust than that thing.

I bet a Rav 4 would do it!

Having a trailer with almost flat tires sure didn't make it easier. When he takes it in for warranty trans. repair the dealer should show this video to him.
It takes a lot, almost makes me feel smart.

Damn impressive if you ask me. The BMW pulled out a 40'+ cruiser on a trailer designed for a 30' CC with only 2 wheels. Blame the moron who thought it was a good idea to use that trailer.

the good news is he waited until the slow holiday time when no one is at the lake

and did anyone else catch the 3/4 ton Dodge pulling the row boat trailer that passed in front of the camera.....talk about a couple of people that need to swap vehicles

Sooo much wrong in that video but it's Friday and let's be positive...…………

It would make a great BMW commercial.

The vehicle actually did pretty good, IMHO, considering the trailer was 3X undersized for the boat.

Nothing like risking a $60k vehicle to pull out a $1,500 POS boat. Where the heck are they going to take that on that trailer? 1/2 the boat is past the end of the trailer!
But, it's good to know I can pull a cruise ship with my BMW X3 since it has all wheel drive. If only I had a RAV4 - the sky would be the limit.
