I own one of those square dodges and even though its a dually, the frame is way more flexy thinner anweaker for the majority of it than my 03 half ton, I wouldn't be confident with probably 16 k behind it, especially on a bumper pull

For some reason they all think they need a 3/4 ton to get a sheet of plywood or run leaves to the dump once a year. I've had a few people tell me they bought a truck because they didn't want to tow a small trailer the couple times they'd need it, because backing up a trailer is hard. 1500 for a really nice trailer or 15000+ for a truck. Makes sense to me

Probably not a dumb load, but not something I'd like to stop in the snow - Photo was posted somewhere else, PA Turnpike, dated 1963. Did those mobile homes have brakes back then?

2wd late 90s F-150 on the bumpstops. Skid steer not tied down. On a real janky car trailer.

They have a lot of Chevy stepsides towing travel trailers in the good old USSR?

Photo is credited to Marc Riboud. He has several pics from traveling the Mexico-Alaska highway. Alaska would be my guess.

Buddy's dad has a 69 dart swinger in the back of the shop with a munched fender. He parked it after bumping a pole when he build the motor in it. He built the motor because he'd upgraded his tow rig from the dart, to a 5.9 dakota. For towing their 32' boat.

Saw a video last night of a bunch of Crazy Russian drivers, and there was a car with a load of plywood strapped to the roof like that in it. They were traveling at a pretty good clip when this little family of 5 stepped out onto the crosswalk in front of them. Of course, rather than plow over them the car hit it's brakes and the plywood shot off the roof and wiped out the family in the crosswalk like a guillotine. Guy gets out of the car like "Aw hell, look what you did to my nice new plywood".

My son's FIL is coming to pick up this massive 2 axle pop up trailer, that he's had parked at my ranch for the last 6 months, this morning with plans to tow it to Colorado Springs. He'll be going from the DFW right through Amarillo and the weather report says it has been sleeting all night on his route. His 2 WD 1/2 ton Dodge should have an interesting time towing that thing through Raton Pass. Glad it's not me!

Interesting how you determined all this driving under it on the highway.

I saw it going up the ramp and back down. I also saw him heading the opposite direction loaded the same way 15 minutes earlier.

Considering the user name and the fact you have seen my truck I'm wondering how you figured out that I drive a Toyota, Seth. The load may not have been that big but defiantly dumb
