Agreed, there are no two TV/TT combinations that are alike...., we all have different loading habits, and TV configurations/options also influence the end result.

I pulled a 16,000lb backhoe behind a f150. I don't think I would blink at a 8k TT. Don't live in a paper world. One can argue that it may be over spec., but I have no doubt that a f150 can pull a 8k TT with no problems.

I agree, go to any campground anywhere and half to people are "overloaded" yet travel thousands of miles a year. Common sense gets you far,

Thats right! Most of us are overloaded per say. The load ratings are very conservative by design. Everybody exceeds the published limits right out of the box, yet very few have problems. I am an electrical engineer. I can tell you that a 20 amp circuit can handle triple that load before a problem may occur. But it is fused at 20 amps none the less for safety. A "D" rated tire may be rated for 2500lbs, but may handle much more than that with no problems provided it is run at rated max pressure. However, a bad tire is a bad tire and may probably blow no matter what.

The OP has never responded to the thread and the topic has been well covered so I think this one has run its course. Thread closed.
