How not to get your camper unstuck – Click above watch the video after the break

The caravan you see above is stuck betwixt the two walls. We don't know how they got it in there, if they couldn't get it out – nevertheless, the reality on the ground is that it wouldn't come up. One would think there had been enough of these videos from all corners of the world to prove that sledgehammering the throttle doesn't solve problems. Unless you're in Iceland. Yet this gent, who isn't in Iceland, is the next to learn that lesson the hard, and expensive, way. Follow the jump for the turmoil. Hat tip to Duy!

      Jonathan,are you from the UK or someplace that calls that thing a caravan? If not, you come of like a complete tool. If you are, no problem.

        LOL, speaking of coming of as a tool...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Can't you just enjoy this clip?
      • 4 Years Ago
      When in doubt, throttle out!

      Man, and they say that our rednecks are dumb.

        The only thing missing from the clip was someone yelling in the background...

        "Hey ya'll, WATCH THIS!"

      Let's see your Forester do that you limp wristed, SUV hating pansies!

      Just kidding............pansies.

        and I'd like to see the Forester get an 'almost low-range' via a 7 speed automatic.
        1-6 in tow/haul, 2-7 in normal.
        Current 4 speed auto: 2.785, 1.545, 1, 0.694, Reverse 2.272
        7 speed auto (JATCO JR710E): 4.9238, 3.1938, 2.0426, 1.4118, 1, 0.8622, 0.7715, Reverse1 3.972

        Even with the 2.5 non-turbo, it could do the same.
