Viking with a Hammer
No level trailer with too much weight at the rear:
One time a buddy of mine talked me into pulling a huge box trailer to Wisconsin for him, I had a 14 2500 cummins truck. I knew the trailer was heavy and could feel it but the truck pulled it fine and stopped fine. Just out of curiosity I stopped at a cat scale before pulling into town, 21k... I’ll never do that again!Reminds me of my father in law. 17k lb horse trailer with a 2004 3/4ton. 4K over rated tow capacity.
The dude living at my local Walmart made it through the winter in a 70’s camper, we had -33f !Our local Wal-Mart seems to attract a lot of overloaded pickups using ratchet straps to hold on their campers. These are frequently old, rough rigs that appear to be the primary residence. Would hate to be behind them when they switch locations.
From what I've seen GVWR is an optional consideration for "overlanding." Pick any built up Taco or Jeep as evidence.
