They still have to gather all the pcs and prove they were in/on the TV which a good lawyer could make mincemeat out of. Never heard of any lawsuit being won proving any rv/tv combo being overloaded. Would love to see some data disproving this observation on my part.

Never argue with people who "never heard", they will drag you down to their level.

negligence is not that hard to prove, it happens everyday. do what you think is right. If you wanna flip your tv and tt and risk hurting your family, thats your choice, but I will NEVER be ok with you risking my family by your negligence and lack of responsibility.

One of my friends here is a recently retired CSP (Colo State Patrol) officer and he said that they have not cited any RV for overweight.

He said it is almost impossible to get a conviction for that kind of ticket. Take it for what it is worth.

No one is suggesting anything, just asking for some data to prove the point of being able to prove the case of an rv/tv being overloaded and causing an accident instead of all the speculation. Someone just cite a case in lieu of stating opinions/speculation/innuendoes/personal feelings, etc.

A while back, there was a lawyer who cited specific examples (without names, of course) and no one was happy with that. But, it was examples none the less.

This is a pointless argument. And Walke, you made me laugh.

I hope the setup works for the op and others on the road so we all can be safe. That said if a small car towing big camper wipe me out on the roadway and I live....................... do the math

You would not just have to put forward the idea that you thought the setup was not up to parr, you must also prove that that was the cause of any accident and not anything else, it's just not that black and white.
