Flatlanders is too nice of a word. I prefer phrases like "subhuman filth" Also, parts of Maine are pretty damn flat.

You would be a subject matter expert on the subhuman filth infestation

In Maine it's called potato country and nobody south of Portland remembers it exists

They're too busy writing up someone with a new truck for not having spare fuses.

If it is a bumper pull that 8k tongue is insane. If you are right the trailer weighs a bit more so 10k in the bed of the truck is not much better.

Yes, that is why I called it a 16k trailer. 4 tires at 4k comes to 16k. More likely it has 3500 lbs tires and expects 2k on the tongue.
