5......4.........3.........2..........1

Fuckoff...  I don't really give a shilt what you do, who you do t to or how many times for that matter.  If you are toting a toyhauler with a 150, you are overloaded simple fact.  Myself, I have a ONE TON, not a grocery getter and my camper loaded and ready to go (water tank full, HWH full, 2 batteries, generator and 2 propane tanks plus our gear weighs a bit less than 2800 pounds, well within the capabilities of my truck.

Guess I'm done with this thread as well.  Have a great day and KMA.

And we have 'liftoff' right on time!!!

Flip must be a salesman's delight as predictable as he is ;D ;D ;D

Flip, this is about the 3rd or 4th time now you've told me you're finished and yet you keep returning just like a yo-yo!

F-150, 250, 350, 450...

it's all about the GVW and max towing capacity.  Nothing more, nothing less.  I do haul groceries in mine as a matter of fact but I also haul anything else I want to and I haul it very, very safely. 

Maybe you should make a trip through a real campground one of these busy weekends.  Most of the pickups you see hauling campers are Ford F-150s.  There's a reason it's the most popular pickup in the US of A and that is at least in part because of it's versatility. 

Number wise the next in line are the Dodge 1500s.  I haven't owned a Dodge in years but the one I did own was a pretty decent truck for the money.  Next is the Ford Super Duty but those are typically hauling the big fifth wheel campers. 

Anyway, now all the other posters can see exactly why I wasn't just going to give you solid numbers for my tongue weight and that is because I already figured out (because you're getting predictable) that you just wanted to work it around to where you could say (yet again) that your truck is bigger than my truck.  Sorry, I've never played that game.  I buy what I want for what I need and the main focus is always on doing the job safely. 

You need to go spend your time lecturing to someone that has less experience than you do and that isn't me either!!!

I'll be sure and let you know when I have my first crash caused by an overloaded vehicle and my best guess is it will be the 'other guy' that was overloaded and at fault!!!

Sorry to see you go (again)!  Don't let the door hit you on the backside!

That was almost the way my brother did it, but there was not a knot to begin with. :) Thanks for the clip!

I'm sure there are lots of variations on that general 'weave'.  There are other YouTubes that show some of them.  Watch and learn and then 'weave your own'.
