Holy sh!t,...on many levels; what a damn boat and secondly trailering that thing with a pickup (any pickup) looks dangerous as hell.

I think max tow is 31,000lbs. Hope the weigh in was the whole set up! Good Luck!

3500 dually should be 9-10k and rated for 31k so he's under the limit. and the scout is 20k dry with motors but no trailer

Tongue weight... not pullin' weight. He's fine on flat ground. I'd need electric over hydraulic to safely pull that thing down hill... with disc brakes on all axles.

Well, Im assuming he's gonna tow it. My point is way too much weight to tow without a 5th wheel. Also, I think 10% of the total weight of that load is too much tongue weight for that truck.

Caj does this for a living and has a great reputation.. don't think he would do it if it were illegal or he felt unsafe.

The problem with a fifth wheel trailer is they must have 20% to 25% on the hitch/kingpin. Most "light" diesels are incapable of handling such weights on the bed or bumper.

Just stay out of Tennessee with that rig. Their truck troopers are as tough as they get, and you'd be looking at big fines for such a light truck.

All the new trucks have strong engines. It's not enough to tow a heavy weight. You've also got to turn right, left and stop within a margin of safety.

10 percent tongue weight is too much on any rig. I'm in the 300 too 800 pounds is enough for anything camp.

Anyways, it's on a15t pintle hook. EOH brakes and it stops rather easily.

Thanks for saying that.

Nothing I'm doing is illegal. Not even in Tennessee. The trucks are registered for 40k lbs and as long as the rig doesn't exceed any axle weights, it's legal.
