    Truck and Trailer load information

    I found this and I thought I would share. If you have any other sites to help with learning what kind if truck you need for different types of trailers and load weights I'd appreciate it. I'm learning and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Not a truck made that doesnt come with a manufacturers recommended towing guide for the specific engine, rearend, configuration of each truck. Not sure why people constantly make this so complicated.

    We use a 1 ton truck truck to pull a 6 horse steel trailer. :-/ According to the second website its way beyond what our truck can haul. We have no issues whatsoever.

    I can become a big issue should you be involved in an accident.

    You might want to check with your insurance agent and make sure you're covered while pulling over maximum tow ratings.....

    Something to keep in mind...

    When hauling live weight (weight that can and will shift around particularly in a panic situation when you need it the least) the rule of thumb is not to load the tow vehicle to more that 75% of the stated maximum.
