Have you been on the scales yet? From the looks of things, I'd say you're a tad overweight. Maybe I didn't read the specs right on that trailer though.

Hey, you're pretty good. Just by looking at a picture you can tell if someone is overweight.
Tell me, is my rig overweight?

Pretty sure you're good! But thanks for being a smart ass!!! Look up the specs on that trailer posted up. It has a GVWR of over 14,000 lbs. it's dry weight is 10,000 lbs. the dry pin weight is 1,766 lbs. that is a 1/2 ton pickup. The carrying capacity is probably only about 1,500 lbs. the towing capacity is definitely less than 10,000 lbs, most likely being around 8,000 lbs. So yeah, he is overweight. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that!!!!

It might pull it sort of ok now, but if you load it a little nose heavy and hit a good bump it could shear an axle or break a rim and leave you and your family in a world of hurt. There is a big difference between carrying 2500 pounds of firewood and a 30 foot RV when you hit a big bump or dip (especially when you are almost bottomed out already) because the mass moment of inertia of the RV is really high as your truck tries to make it rotate around the trailers axles. This might be a good time to look at a bigger truck.

I have regular heated discussions on here with the weight police- but that 356 is too much for a half ton. Even an F150 HD with a much stronger axle and rear suspension than that 1500 would be questionable.
