Looks to me like it might really be a bigger test for that pin holding the drawbar to the tongue.[emoticon]

Actually, it's a 450 and it also looks like the passenger was recording. Just sayin'... Personally, I have no problem with it, as long as it's mostly empty. Hell, empty, it's probably lighter than most FWs people tow, especially with a 450.

Me neither. Just putting it out there to show it may not be as rare as most would think. I see the 4 and 550’s pulling 4-8 cars all the time. I’m sure those are upwards of 30k. I stopped this guy. He scaled out at 53k gross. 33 on the trailer with a 27k GVWR. Cited and out of service for unsafe load (tire ratings).
