Maybe if I were a Commiefornian (or just a normal commie) I'd feel differently but I can't imagine not exceeding 55 on the highway regardless of what you're towing/hauling. It's 20-goddamn-18. If you can't do 70 you shouldn't be on the highway.

It's pretty miserable! It's a big state to cover at only 55 mph at a time. However the roads are so shitty towing anything faster is extra sketchy. It's such a great place, come visit!

Oregon used to be the same but they just upped the limit for trucks to 60 on main highways, still 55 on the smaller ones its an ass ache to get anywhere and make good time in these 2 states

Yeah, the majority of fair weather accidents happen because traffic isn't doing a consistent speed, so let's make traffic not do a consistent speed for safety!

I called a CHP office to verify it was for all trailers and not just big rigs because I was towing a little quad trailer out to NV and back.
Me: So once I cross over the state line, I have to drop my speed by 10MPH because the roads are un safe?
CHP Lady:
well, california has a lot of twisty freeways and high winds.
Me: and other states dont?
CHP lady: ITS FOR YOUR SAFETY SIR!!!! and hung up.

Obviously, I feel so safe on I5 when the right lane is doing 55 and the left lane is doing 85.

I went to koh and back this year, I did 70 the whole way (about 600 miles one way) with my cab over and car trailer. Fuck chp!

I was worried about towing in California with their stupid laws. Then I realized nobody gave a shit either, I ran 70+ on IH10.

I did laugh my ass off at the signs telling me to turn my a/c off or my truck may overheat on a hill must be a bunch of junk vehicles out west.

I'd have taken it as a sign that there are a bunch of fucking idiots, not junk vehicles.
Who even needs to be told to turn on the heat when it starts getting hot? Dumbasses, that's who.

You accidentally backed your trailer into $473 worth of state property before you left the state, right?

It was a thought, but there was an issue where he also gave me shit about being over length and to get the fook out of his state because he didn't want to red tag me out out of service. Figured I would rather not see him again...

Yep I'm sure it's over capacity for the truck but it would pull it fine if driven properly. The trailer on the other hand weighs about 1500lbs and has 7k worth of axle under it...

It looks like the tires are smashed against the fenders. The axles are bent front just loading that thing I'm sure

Throw a Class 5 hitch on the pickup instead of the crappy factory one, a skid steer trailer with 8k or 10k axles and run it, The setup that guy has going on is definitely bdl worthy at the moment.

See that all the time out here in farm country. Only replace the Dmax with a 97 Chevy 1500 and a messcan white knuckling it down the road with his flashers on.

Sometimes I wonder if people look at an axle and say ďit has 4 wheels just like those other trailers, so itís fine.Ē The number of light duty landscape trailers with bent frames and serious camber issues around mid-TN seems to outnumber those that donít.

I think you covered 70% of most trailer users right there. They look at a 7k trailer and don't see a single difference compared to a 14k or heavier trailer. Just because they're both similar in shape and have 4 wheels does not mean two trailers are the same but the majority does not understand that. It run into people all the time to don't even realize you can get skid steer trailers with more then 7k axles under them as well. They're the same people who figure my dual tandem gooseneck has the same capacity as a semi trailer since they both have 8 tires.

I always had a good trailer, but I may be guilty of the Chevy 1500 part of the scenario

If I can kinda stop it, I may take some liberties.

Its commiefornia.....you aren't allowed to think for yourself. They they think everyone is as brainless as they are so they have to make signs to help you think.
