i know the hitch is rated for 30,000 but what is the truck legally able to handle. is it the 12500 pounds thats its rated for or does the rating go up because its a gooseneck or 5th wheel?

the gooseneck / 5th wheel type hitch will handle the load a lot beter and disperses the weight differently than the bumper pull style. but as far as the truck goes i know guys that have pulled 25K+ with a gooseneck trailer on a 3/4 ton truck. i guess it just really comes down to how comfortable you are with it. also a good set of overload springs or air bags will help you out a lot as well. if you dont already have a set.. hope this helps ya what exactly are you wanting yto pull???

I know here in Florida the legal limit for a 3/4 or 1 ton truck is 26,000 pounds thats truck, trailer and what ever your hauling. But I know many haul well over that limit

Down here they come and go sometimes you'll see DOT Officers pulling people over left and right it was pretty bad a couple months ago for both Commerical and anyone pulling a trailer it seemed like it and the guys who haul Oranges especially b/c everytime they get pulled over its almost guanteed they are overloaded. But here lately I haven't seen to many.

Yeah its getting enforced more and more for everyone.

But you know whats stupid about the whole thing in Florida if you go get a Class A License w/out airbrake endorsement you can with the same truck pull up to 39,500 pounds with of course brake controller and trailer brakes

So by getting the License how is this now safe to pull almost 40K??
