EXACTLY. When someone ASKS for advice on here they deserve the debate that has happened here.
CLEARLY everyone and his brother has thoughts on this!
The one thing I try to do when I answer the question is keep the OP in mind NOT the rest of you. If I was new to the towing game and was asking such questions I would want someone to steer me in the direction of being safe for certain. That's why I tell folks like that what I consider the safest route. IF they decide to do less then its on them and I have a clear conscious.
I do agree with one thing for sure though. There are a lot of folks that have never towed that go out and buy a 40' 5th wheel and head off down the road. I fear those folks far more than those who are a little overweight!!
