mine came home on the back of a tilt tray.  bought it from a deceased estate and it hadn't run for 6 years.  Had to winch it onto tray top. It was that long that the back wheels were slightly hanging off the back of the tray and passed the RTA roadside inspectors on the way into town.  Luckilly, not pulled in. Towie stopped at the servo for me and pumped up the square tyres. Pulled up in front of my place and used the winch to stop it running away down the hill.  Still with no brakes we ran out of rope so I aimed for the kerb backwards with a 1% handbrake and park in the auto in an emergency.  Got it there safe and well and there it sat till I bled the brakes and got a bit of a pedal and got the thing running to get it in the yard.
Lotsa fun.  Many repairs (and years) later it is on the road and wouldn't be without the motorhome.
