If he's in FL he'll be fine. Pulling it through the N. GA mountains would certainly end in tragedy. Pulling is easy, stopping is a biotch. As long as he's got good surge brakes on the trailer he will have no problems.

I state the above on the premise that the driver has some SKILL. If he's just a blooming idiot murphy will handle the rest.

I'm sure he has the tow package and trailer brakes.

How about a 30' GW with a pre-Tacoma truck? Or a 31' ocean master with a s10 truck?

You should have gotten in front of him and tapped your brakes...

I wouldnt know since we were doing about 3 mph in bumper to bumper traffic. I doubt he could even get that rig to 55 mph.
