Just because you can pull it doesn't mean your vehicle can handle it. I see this all the time on the road and the travel trailer sites I belong to. First time travel trailer owners buying a 33ft or longer travel trailer and wanting to pull to with a half ton pickup, or buying a smaller trailer and pulling it with a Jeep Wrangler as in the video.
I replaced my 06 GMC Denali with a 5.3 and tow package that I used to pull our 19ft travel trailer (3185lbs) mainly because the motor broke a timing chain at 198,000 and trashed the motor. I have not pulled the trailer with the pickup yet, but I'm sure it will handle it much easier. The Envoy did OK but the short wheelbase made it a little sketchy at times.

i almost got to witness the exact same thing two summers back on i75 up near where the Michigan renaissance festival is.

i dunno how the guy i watched managed to get his rig back under control the way his trailer was whippin... but they did.

im sure it ruined a pair of shorts for him at the very least.
