There can be no way that this rig is legal to travel on the freeway. Im sweating pulling my commando with my cherokee because of weight the vehicle can tow at the rear axle, you must be overextending that weight with that rig, No?

Um thats a pretty common setup. Towing with a truck is way different than towing with a Cherokee. Not to mention he has a gooseneck. He probably has about 3500 lbs on an axle rated for at least 4000.

Top notch event. Well organized, easy parking, lots of staff that were easily picked out in a crowd, great courses, lots of venders and the weather got nice.......oh, and my rig didn't break.

Maybe rethink the window cling idea for next year tho........
