At least its a single row of pallets. Around here they'll throw two or three in the bed, then stack them two wide as high as possible. And that's without a lift gate and bed rack.

Spotted this gem today. Durango pulling a dolly, with a swb mdt/hdt chassis. Front wheels were stacked under the front axle, since it was too wide to fit on it. Durango was hurting trying to pull that bitch

Chris.... ever weighed one of those bobtails? I have. You might be surprised to know the entire vehicle is north of 10k pounds.

That gets done pretty often as was already said in this thread it will load the tailer down instead of the rear of that ford. It doesn't help that the dodge he was loading has a 1200lb cummins sitting in the front of it and from the looks of it was well over the tongue weight. You tell me how you plan on loading that truck? Tongue weight should only be 10-15% of the overall weight. 1200-1400lbs is well past that on what appears to be around a 3k trailer and 6000lb truck. Backing the truck on would be the correct way to fix that.


As for the bobtail I am not surprised they feel heavy being driven.

Nice try smart ass
I love how some people defend their stupidity. It's like they know it's stupid but can't help but tell on themselves. LOL

Chicken coop with an interior dividing wall, interior walls and ceiling with insulation, must have weighed close to 4000 lbs and was 13 feet tall on the truck

WAY too much tongue weight is infinitely better than barely not enough. I've been there, learned that lesson, and was almost killed in the process. I will never have too little tongue weight ever again. It's irresponsible, dangerous and beyond stupid.

yip thats a standard case of a dumbass with a trailer pulling a rig that way to fucking big for the trailer, If you cant adjust the load distribute weight properly, then your trailer is too small for the job.
