Ask MrTruck Ep.#4: Overloaded HD Truck and a Truck Nuts Contest Announcement [Video]


It’s hard to believe that TFLtruck is already airing Ask MrTruck Ep.#4. One of the main questions is regarding whether or not a trailer will overload a 3/4 ton pickup truck. Mr Truck answers this and other questions.

Take a look at this HD truck (Ford Super Duty) towing dual trailers in Colorado. It is legal to two two trailers in Colorado if the first one is a 5th wheel or gooseneck, and the second one is a “bumper pull”. Try calculating the tongue weight on this rig!
