So the salesman said: "Sure, your half-ton truck can pull this trailer easily."

I couldn't see the model, but it was a GD Reflections and appeared to be a bunkhouse... this trailer is most likely over 12k easily I think. Picture actually makes it look better than it was.

Looks more like improperly adjusted height issues with either the pin box or the hitch it's self. Yes the rear looks a bit down but not bad.

Salesman: Sure, your F150 EcoBoost with Maxtow can handle this 12,000lb 5th wheel!

I saw this one in the winter of 2015 in a Wal Mart parking lot. Couldn't resist the picture. I found out a couple of hours later that they had towed this a bit over 200 miles when they were checking in the campground where I was hosting.

Surprised he hasn't ripped off the front jacks yet. It has to scrape on every single driveway.

By appearances this owner needs to buy an equalizing hitch; and have it properly set-up by someone who knows how.

Or just get a bigger truck, equalizing hitch won't make him less overloaded!

I am trying to understand the inner workings of a mind that would look at that and co sider it safe enough to pull away from the house. I am drawing a blank.
