He has too much in the box, and has his trailer loaded completely wrong too.

See things like this every day.

Always see people with travel trailers and uhauls wiht bad weight distro and the wrong hitch for their vehicle.

I actually believe there should be a small course to own a truck, much like if you wanted a forklift license, to understand loads and center of gravity.

what's most disturbing is he is relieving the stress from overloading the box to just straight up increasing it many times fold (power of the lever)
