The fifth wheel extension is pinned together and pinned to the truck frame. (yellow parts shown below) Pull 8 pins in proper sequence, it comes off and apart in 5 pieces. Stow the pieces.

Put dolly wheels on the landing gear. A pair of ramps clip to the tip of the beavertail. There's a winch hidden inside the box/sleeper thingie.

Roll on, roll off like Karate Kid.

The cab and chassis formerly served as a Rema Tip Top dealer's highway unit with a big cube body on board. It was in sad, rusty shape but had a recently rebuilt/overhauled drivetrain. It was red and ugly as sin! I replaced both fenders, did the bodywork and paint, revamped the interior and built everything else.
