Loading that truck would have been an even scarier picture. They must have blocked the back of that trailer, or they Ferd may have had its back tires dangling in the air.

That has to be like a 14k equipment trailer to not be folded in half, right? Sure doesn’t look like that much frame though does it?

Yeahhh, I'd suspect it has to have some big axles under it at a minimum. I sure wish I could see the camber angle.

All set for high speed handling now for sure.

I'm not sure it was a dovetail before it got loaded.

we had an older 10k bumper pull with big cast iron casters under the ass to keep it from digging into your driveway or something since it had an aggressive dovetail.

Wasn't there a video/pics on here somewhere of somebody that merged into the drawbar between the A and B unit on a truck?

Basically, you can't idiot proof it, there is always a better idiot.

JK with the "max towing" or whatever BS Fiat called it is rated to tow 3500lbs/350lbs tongue weight, so yeah, not really pushing it far enough to call it dangerous... I bet it tows that better than an 80s half ton would.

The one time I rented a machine from Home Depot they told me I needed to have a 3/4 ton or larger pickup or I couldn't take it. It was a Kubota BX which a half ton could have pulled easily.

That's when you show up with one of those 97-99 7 Lug F-250's or the 90's 6 lug GM 2500's just out of spite.

I'd rock that and I wouldn't think twice about it. Put some weight in the tail end of the mobile home to get the truck off the bump stops and take it slow.

my dad pulled a neighbors trailer of similar size a few miles up the road with his f250 flatbed around 1989. I was like.. "yeah, my dads truck is fucking badass.".

I still have that truck. Plows snow now.

Strap some blocks between the axle and frame. All is good
