    Yeah, that trailer is a great trailer, he is a good friend of mine.
    It would hold 2 blazers with no problem.

    Pics of the dovetail and hitch, please.... Hell, just more pics in general! I think this was the trailer that caught my eye last year that brought Scott's K5 back to CO for him. What size ball is it?


    Edit: 2 5/16 ball....


    Now, buying a trailer before I have a tow rig.... Isn't that like putting on my pants before my underwear....??? Hmm...can I make this work?

    Please tell your buddy to email me all the pics he has to rufneck53 @ hotmail dot com. I see he's listed his phone number on the other site, too, so.... Hmmm.....

    Scott,

    I was seriously considering that trailer to buy; however, I couldn't legally tow it. SiInce there isn't a 1-ton truck out there with a receiver hitch that is rated for a 14K trailer, it might just sit there a while. The best class 5 receiver hitch is only rated to a 10K trailer.

    Guess that counts me out.

    I wonder what hitch my buddy has on his powerjoke? :D
    Do you think his hitch is only rated for 10k?

    Quite certain on the hitch. He probably figured he'd be under the total weight of 10K. Just not legal.

    Is there a law that says the hitch has to be rated? You can easily build a custom hitch to meet the 14K trailer capacity. I'd be more worried about the 1400-2000# of tongue weight at the back of the 1 ton truck plus the braking capacity or exceeding the GCWR of the truck then the hitch. Get up to a 1-1/2 or 2 ton truck and I would not be so worried about it any more though.
