There are a lot of threads here about different tow vehicles. A lot of the time IMHO they are about getting by with the minimum truck for trailering. There is usually the comment that “I’m only trailering short distances” etc.
I haul with an F-250 extended cab long bed and pull a Hawk 2 horse BP with a dressing room. I also use a weight distributing hitch with anti-sway bars. That’s about as safe as you can be.
I was coming home from a week long hunt trip and it was really windy. I was about 30 minutes from my departure point on a flat section of highway when we really got rocked by a side gust of wind. We could really feel it try to move that rig. I was thinking thank god I was not pulling with one of those minimalist trucks or it would have been a wreck.
During the week it was very windy as well. At one point I was trailering to a meet and behind a minimalist rig that was getting pushed around the road from the wind. They had to creep along along to stay secure. Again, flat road but a narrow road and it would have been easy to put a wheel off the side into the soft shoulder.
All of the discussions here have made me aware of what people use to tow and when I see these rigs out on the road it really makes me cringe.
