No WDH? Thats illegal isn't it? Can you maybe point that out before he gets someone killed? Man people like that are the reason I'm researching neurotically. I don't want to be that guy going down the road :X

I hope he didn't have to tow it too far. I'm going to go up to the office and see where he lives and make sure I don't drive that direction when he leaves.
This is why the magical tow ratings they give half tons concerns me so much.

The other day I was passed by a guy towing a tandem axle utility trailer that was so 'nose high' that the wheels on the front axle weren't even moving!
I couldn't stop laughing!

They give tow ratings, but also tongue ratings. He may not even be aware of WD hitches. I bet if you looked at his tongue jack it will have scrape marks on it. If he doesn't like your casual suggestion, well, can't fix stupid...but hopefully the police will make the suggestion in a way he can't refuse.

I'm not convinced that offering advice will be accepted.

A few weeks ago I offered on another Jayco forum that another new users new Eco F150 was not a good match for his newly ordered, up and coming fifth wheel. He had Many more supporters than detractors.

Almost 40 years ago another camping family sent their young son over to suggest that my new bride and I (honey-mooners) first set the stabilizer feet on our unhitched camper/ before camping for the night. We listened and there was no/ or only little, rocking.

Wow! When I saw that pic I thought it was a photo shopped joke. The sad thing is that's how innocent people get hurt out on the roads.
