That is because they are giving advice to someone looking for it because they are new and inexperienced. You continue to do what you want, with your trucks, but respect the advice given by those who are trying to help those who do not know.
It is common for people to get bigger trailers than what they have and if they get a bigger truck than they need with the current trailer, they may not need a bigger truck for the next trailer.
The weight police (at least 1) and I have admitted towing over weight, but do we recommended or approve of others doing so without knowing their experience, skill, mindset, or conditions they will encounter? No! Because too much truck may save them from getting hurt, hurting someone else, getting killed, or killing someone else.
An experienced person can use their better judgment to weigh out weather or not they can use what they have and do what they need to. Please remember, some coming here are learning.
