I might be a dumb trucker, and far from a math-a-matician, but my calculator says that 3750 x 2 doesn't equal 8040lb....

7500# that's quite a bit overloaded on the tires. I'd be willing to bet the factory wheels are only rated at 3600# each. Maybe dump fresh water tank and remove tailgate,that could bring it down 500# depending on the size of the fresh tank and where it's located. I'd be concerned loading those tires and wheels up like that but I did have a tire expert who knows his stuff tell me that the max rated load is based on weight and top speed the tire is rated for. This doesn't mean that it's ok to overload like this though. My guy would never consider it.

Im pulling a fully loaded 377RLBH with a RAM 2500 short bed. But before any duly sworn Weight Police Officers arrest me, or warn me of the damage, destruction, carnage, or death that I'm going to cause, I'm doing it with an The Automated Safety Hitch | Trailer Hitch | Gooseneck Horse Trailers | 5th Wheel RVs | Flatbed Goosenecks | Fifth Wheel.

I plan on finishing the season wth the ASH, before I write-up a full product review, but so far, I could not be more impressed on what it does for me! Take a look at their website if you want details. Watch their videos.

Though backing takes a bit of practice, it really works! Plus, when I'm NOT towing, I only have four tires on the pavement, not six, and I don't have fenders sticking out for someone to run into while parking, or to slam their shopping cart into at Home Depot. Additionally, I have MORE breaking capacity than I would have with a dually!

I have pulled it from Bozeman MT, where I bought it to my hometown in Kennewick WA. Over 3 mountain passes. I have also pulled it to Port Angeles WA, over one Mountain pass (Cascades), and back over. this weekend pulled it over Blue Mountain pass above Pendelton OR. No problems at all. the stock 6.7 Powerstroke has enough power. it does slow up steep (6%) grades (maybe 55 mph-ish), being the trailer is loaded up (85 gallons on board water, Onan 5500 generator, 6 batteries, 3 AC units, etc.). Never ran over CAT scales, yet. I need to. Dry pin weight it app. 3,150 lbs(without extras, water, etc.). It is likely around 3500 now. I do use airbags and Pullright 18k auto slider (not necessarily needed, but just in case).
