"It's the RATE OF CHANGE IN SLOPE over a short distance that matters."

That makes sense. Hard to pin a number on that perhaps.....one that can be measuresd and used. I guess experienced haulers just go by past experience.

That's why I initially said, you would almost have to do a survey but if you could get a buddy with a similar rig to slowly pull in, you could check it out ahead of time.
