Seems the guy found a fifth wheel that's well within his specs.
I'm all for pointing out danger when called for, if the details are known. As I used to tell people when they tried to decline safety related repairs on their cars, that's my wife and kids you're beside on the road.
But in general the weight police does get too testy. That's why my truck isn't part of my sig line. I'm over on payload and loaded for a trip I'll be just under on CGVWR.
I once asked the question on another RV forum, is going from a dual slide TT to a triple slide fifth wheel worth the expense. I did say what 5er I was considering as an example, and it's physically similar to the 5er I have now.
I got many, many responses expressing concern and opinion regarding my intelligence. A couple of pages worth. Your truck isn't up to task, that's too much weight, you're going to kill someone.
Not a single answer to my simple question. Yes or no. I had a mod lock the thread and I quit posting there.
