The track

Ok, so we need to begin construction of two identical, high strength tracks for use in moving the RORV.  

Current deisgns lie with tracks built from bicycle chains and used tires.   The limitations of bicycle chains, however have not been considered.  Are these chains rated for at least 50 lbs each?  Very likely (if not using a child’s chain).  Could these chains be sized and joined easily, to create a custom length track?  If 3 chains were constructed on each side, then center chain may be used for drive.  2 chains per side could provide stability and strength support for the drive chain.   

It is theorized that rubber sections may be cut from old tires and shaped for use as traction for the track.  Any experts here?
