Most new TT/5th wheel buyers don't realize that adding 1000lbs to the truck decreases the available amount to tow by 1000lbs.

Let alone that having 12,000lbs behind a 1/2 ton on a windy day would not be anyone's drive in the park.

It's really funny how you never read about anyone complaining that they have too much truck and need to seriously think about downsizing.
This goes for any truck not just half tons.
