Just because you can move it doesn't mean ya should. That short wheelbase is no match for that camper. I cannot imagine how terrifying that would be.

On a side note, I've been thinking about a dash cam. Oh, the crap I see when out doing deliveries!

If you have ever pulled a trailer you know that feeling.

I picked up a 24' X 24' steel building frame on my 20' flatbed. Could not go over 30. But I was close to home. It was not the weight but the distribution.

That's it exactly. It's how the weight is distributed on the rig. Some keep the weight further back, to minimize tongue weight, which is not the right approach at all. I love this example....

Oh yes. Whenever I pulled doubles (back when I drove big truck) that were already hooked up for me, I always made sure to check that the weight of the front trailer was more than the rear trailer. All it takes is once to make you a believer!
