Too Much Weight ?

Did to much tongue weight contribute to the problem

That has gone beyond the "problem" stage.

You can't overload a dually.

What you see here is a dragon attack.

I use Okanagan wood pellets to heat my house. I didn't know they made campers too.

Where do you think the pellets come from.. The saw dust! Lol

If it was an eco boost he would have been fine... They are dragon proof!

Thats some log tongue on the trailer. Must have swayed like crazy. But you have to wonder how much weight there is to bend the frame.?

Nah, it's one of those new "dump beds". Allows you to dump your load from the cab. Driver probably just hit the "dump" switch by mistake.
But, it does take some of the weight off the front end...makes for easier steering.

I don't see this as a problem.

I bet you could add some small wheels under the rear bumper so it doesn't drag and head down the road. You probably won't even know it back there.
