Another article of a trailer coming loose in Kansas. Second time in three months. Both times people were killed.

I don't think we can remind people enough when they are asking questions about trailer weights, hitches about making sure they tow with the correct weights and equipment. I'm very new at towing travel trailers but spent months researching what my truck can tow, understanding all the acronyms, ratings and true weights. I know people don't like hearing from the "weight police" on this site but it's better than what just happen here in Kansas again.
I had a couple RV dealers keep trying to sell me that my 2011 F150 3.7L could pull a 6-7K lb trailer and even the smaller 5th wheel. Please don't buy into this crap without researching for yourself.
OK, I'm done now. Have a great weekend.
