I have seen people move 5000 lb+ vehicles with their teeth but that doesn't mean I plan to sell my TV

Roger that. Just because something can be done, doesn't mean it should be done...

Only because it would have to stop for gas every 5 miles. Lol

You have to be careful and read between the lines and physic. Yes it will tow, just like the man pulling (towing) with his teeth. Now consider this. Towing is easy STOPPING THE LOAD IS THE TRICK! People forget you have to stop all that weight in time. Now it becomes the load PUSHING you where you don't want to be. LOL Don't forget Newtons Law:
To every action there is an opposite and equal re-action.

Actually, people usually forget the the trailer is supposed to stop the trailer... not the truck. Most big heavy fivers are triple 7k axles with three sets of brakes to match. Those brakes are what should be slowing the trailer, not the trucks...

Ummm... I think Newton's first law of motion applies here...

Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.
