Yes, but it is also safer to drive an underweight rig 100 miles rather than 1,000 miles... Safest bet would be to leave it parked...

Statistically, yes. But in reality, mile 2 can be just as deadly as mile 999, I think.

I had some milk with lunch that had an expiration date of yesterday.

It was pretty good.

Not sure I'd go a week overdue, though.

Agreed... more or less I was being a smart *****... I agree that no where and no time should anyone overload... but that being said... it can still be done safely...

I doubt a lawyer would say a tow rating needs to be 60% in the US of the UK rating. Part of the tow rating is based on roads/traffic where the vehicles are sold.

How we drive in the US is different I"m sure than how they drive in england. Anyone go bombing down the autobahn at 150mph with a TT attached?

Driving in Arkansas is way different than driving in Ohio or Texas.

Arkansas = NO people, and MAX potholes, roads resemble Beirut

Texas = MANY people then NO people, and four lanes fully paved everywhere

Up Nawth = MAX people and traffic and better roads

But up here in the Nawth we have a shorter camping season because we have to wait for the snow to melt.. Thus we must be safer as we do not get to tow as much

Oh we ain't safe much at all.

We're where the phrase was coined "Hold my beer and watch this!"

Good one, I remember when my parents towed a 19' trailer with our for country squire LTD. ThAt set-up was rediculous.
