I just think you are blowing smoke! Post an actual occurrence that this has actually happened. In my 75+ yrs, I've never heard of such an occurrence as you described ever happening.

I would think pulling an 8,000+ lb trailer with a Durango would be hard to argue about not being over weight. If I had a wreck pulling a 5er with a VW Jetta, it would be a gimmy for any insurance company. The exception, not the rule.

Doesn't say they were overloaded as determined in a lawsuit. Have heard of and seen some crashes caused by vehicles towing trailers, just not of a lawsuit as you described.

s

I not a expert in law nor do I give legal advice but might want call this person and ask them about since they specialize in overweight RVs. Quoted from the site.

Scottsdale RV Accident Attorney | Motor Home Wreck |

"We can bring in professionals to examine the wreckage for evidence that the motor home was dangerously overweight or unbalanced, that the tires or brakes were worn, that the hitch was not rated for the load, or that the RV lacked the proper lights, reflectors or mirrors."

My neighbor down the street has got that overloaded trailer story web link beat with his setup. He doesn't even have tow mirrors on his F150 shortbed (does NOT have max tow package or max payload package) that he uses to tow a 35 foot along with his wife and 3 children in the truck. His vehicle is only rated to tow 9800 lbs and I'm sure he is at or over his max payload capacity of 1700 lbs. Did I mention he has P rated tires too?

When I see his camper parked in front of the house for a weekend getaway, I always ask where he is going so I can stay clear of any roads he might be on that day.

When I sold my XLT F150 Ecoboost for a bigger truck, I offered to give him my clip on tow mirrors for free and he declined saying he didn't need them.

I hope Darwin doesn't get a hold of him or any innocents.

Getting back to the towing question. Please rely on the people using this forum. Although controversial at times they will tell you the straight scoop.
What ever you do DO NOT RELY ON THE RV DEALER WHO TELLS YOU " WITH THAT TRUCK YOU CAN HANDLE ANYTHING ON THIS LOT " Lots of help here and its FREE. Just my 0.02 worth.

the scary part is, there are thousands more out there just like him. Figure just because it moves and sort of stops, it must be OK.
