Fully agreed. But then again....what do I know compared to the recreational weekend hauler Hook em up and go...worry about stopping, swaying, public safety later.

Won't comment on the weight because he didn't say how heavy his setup was. You can assume it is too heavy maybe it is not. If it is maybe he only pulls it twice a year for 20 miles...
My comment was not made pertaining to the total weight of the setup....just that the setup as a whole looked very unsafe.

You'd shat your pants if you ever came to ND and saw people doing that with a bumper pull camper instead of a fifth wheel then, lol!

Look, it was said in the begining of thread that this isn't a place for the weight police or the holier than thou, it is a place to show off your campers.

Also, how can you question "recreational weekend hauler" if your credentials are unknown? Just so you know, in some states this is a legal setup as long as weights and lengths are not being violated.

I think the big rig tandems ripping down the roads at 85 to 90 MPH are dangerous but....

Now go start your own thread to bitch about weight, I want to see more trailers!
