Being able to do stuff like this is exactly why you put 20k+ of axle and tire under a 9x12 deck-over. :smokin:

Not that that axle has 20k worth of axle.

This is actually local to me and word has it that he traveled over 200 miles like this before being stopped by DOT and put out of service. Redneck hauling at it's finest

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown just how important commercial carriers are to keeping the supply chain moving.

Commercial vehicle enforcement helps ensure that people, in addition to the goods we rely upon, can safely reach their destination by taking unsafe vehicles and drivers off the road.

Last week, a member of the Sheriff Highway Patrol stopped this driver near Grimshaw and documented 21 violations during an inspection, including:

• load not secured to trailer
• no working brakes on the trailer
• exceeding rated weight of tires by 3,000 kg
• expired registration

During the inspection, the officer also noted that the trailer hitch had no locking mechanism – meaning the only thing keeping it attached to the vehicle was the sheer weight of the load on the trailer.

Fines issued to the operator totalled just over $3,800 and the vehicle was placed out of service.

That's impressive. No way I would have thought that pickup could pull that trailer up a hill that steep.

87% grade? I want to know what that parking brake setup is.

I hope he (yes I am assuming his gender is male) take the tote down when filled up lol... no way the roof can handle the weight when full.

I just took a second look. look like he actually is traveling to his next destination (and yard sale there) because the tote and what look like a chest are holding down his mattress. lol
