Default First Tow, Huge Trailer

Ok... so I lied. I just had to move this little guy. Still more trailer than 99% of the flipped up to mirror boys pull though

Woh woh woh.. Where the F is the weight distribution system man!!! That is a dangerous load without a proper hitching set up. Lucky the state didn't see that tow and pull you over to the scale.

I will admit that some people do leave mirrors up when they have never towed, but I am honestly just to damn lazy to adjust my mirrors so I will stay full moose to annoy people. 1 Electric mirror, one manual mirror, ain't nobody got time for that.
And just to mess around.. More trailer then the HD truck guys

I wasn't just referring to Cummins, you see a lot of people.. Especially F250 drivers, who use their trucks as a fashion statement. Chev drivers are just as bad because they are buying the "American" truck and they are just a bunch of bandwagoners who don't know their shit about HD trucks. Congrats you got a nice tranny, same as Ford has a nice rear end.. Still don't have an engine to power it all, and chevs don't even have a solid front axle.. weakkk..

Wish I had a pic of my old 02 GMC 1500 SCSB V6 pulling a 33 foot 8k lb travel trailer.

On another note, that little trailer was annoying to back up. Mainly because I couldn't see it until my truck was turned pretty far. I'd rather back up the 33' trailer.

My dad controls an RV dealership and I work for him so ibhave put some pretty big ass trailers on my truck for shits and gigs when they had to go to the body shop or such.

And tell me about those small trailers. I f'in hate backing up those sneaky little bitches. I can park a 42 foot park model easier then I can a little trailer like yours. You can just see it and guide it so smootly. Those little ones willnjust suddenly go "LOL nope" and be fully sideways after 2 seconds.

You sir would LOVE a 4th Gen Ram OR a backup camera. Soon as that lil stupid trailer tries to swing you see it in the camera and can quickly correct.

I will admit though I sure miss running around in a heavy duty truck even if it would be for show boating. Was driving around in a 2010 Ford F250 today.

Well we have a 2014 cummins 3500 on order right now.. so I will be enjoying the 4th gen fun soon enough. I honestly rarely tow anythint smaller then a 20 footer unless its just testing out the customers vehicle and setting the electronic brakes.
I spent 9 hours today in our f350 plowing. That truck took a beating today.
