A large over load once may not break something this time but the stress could make the useful life of the truck expire next week taking granny to church.
So what is a little and what is a lot in your opinion?
Right, now, still working on loading appropriately for my situation ( a little unorthodox I guess, but I have loaded everything onthe axles). That took 20 lbs off my truck, but I am still 80 lbs over the GVWR (6780) so I will be loading everything in the bathroom which is large and is in the back of the tt. Still lots of tw to do so.) as the fuel tank goes down, it makes the truck lighter lol
My truck's payload right now without even counting the hard mopar tonneau cover and the sidesteps (tubular) is 1260 (ish) lbs (on the yellow sticker)
I was thinking of calling the rv dealer today see if i could exchange for the small jayco with no slide
But if I know it will be safe to tow, then I will stop worrying about it.
Safety for me and others on the road is number 1
If it's about the truck's earlier wear and tear, I can deal with this (trade it in earlier lol)
