    The Stupidity Of Some People Is Unbelievable

    What's that...? You don't have a big pickup to tow your 6,000 lb. gooseneck trailer.....fear not!!!
    A little careful, well thought out engineering can solve your problem...





    Class lll Hitch Install... (patent pending..)
    Wouldn't you love to see how the trip went...? Good chance he ended up doin' some unintended off roadin' somewhere. Check the 'hills' in the background. Howja like to meet this rig on a two-lane road....coming down the mountain in your direction...?




    She's hitched up and ready to roll!! Amazin' how the extra weight smoothes out the ride.
    Needed to air up the rear tires a bit ('bout 160 psi).




    Added some super heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate, (note the 'Heavy-Duty 'S' hooks to attach the chain) Also paid-up for some BIG Number 5/16 sheet metal screws to attach the Reese hitch frame to the tailgate (see 'em there? one on each side...) Likely two more through the carpet into the floor pan inside.....
    Yep, probably overkill, but didn't want the possibility of having an axerdent.




    Most of the time was spent on the front porch whittling down that MASSIVE solid pine 4x4 to fit precisely down into the hole in the ball mount receiver.
    Note also - The 14''x14'' piece of 3/8'' plywood on the underside of the tailgate to distribute the load more evenly and beef up that tailgate support.

    They are out there, folks... and they vote!

    Sadly, when I travel I often see folks who are trying to pull trailers that clearly are too large for the vehicle used to do the towing. I hate it when I have to try to pass a combo where both trailer and truck are sort of "swaying" side to side in a light breeze; the trailer sways with the breeze and forces the towing vehicle back end to waver slightly.

    One thing I wish I saw much more frequently from LEs is enforcement of whatever laws there are to get these dangerous combos off the road before the inevitable calamity happens.

    Sometimes it is comedic, except for the danger aspect. The classic is a 4 wheel U Haul being towed by an old Tercel with maybe a 1.7 cc engine.

    After he kills somebody he will be amazed they want to prosecute him for negligent homicide. I hope he is the end of the gene pool in that family.

    I'll bet a C-Note that this redneck never made it out of the mountains in the background...

    I bet it weighs over 9,000 gross, not that much hitch weight though. But just think, I am sure he still can rear pups, and his kids think he is great comin up with such an idear, I bet he has a hard time getting out of town much less the mountains. My camper weighs 8,100 bumper hitch and is 30' and isn't built as heavy as the old ones and that one is built heavy duty.
