I seriously question a 40' 5er and weighing 14,000 lb. What is the GVWR on the trailer. Estimate the loaded pin weight at 20 to 25% of the trailer GVWR (on sticker at fest front corner or in an interior label).

I would think your GVWWR to be over 16,000# which means your loaded trailer pin weight will be over 3200#.

Sounds like the OP needs to fully understand the tow ratings for trucks and trailers.

Iceman, he said his researched this very well, the 5er dry is 14,000# his truck is rated to TOW 22,000# so he is golden, isn't that all the research he needs to do??? [emoticon] [emoticon] [emoticon] [emoticon] [emoticon]
