  • A driver in Canada was ticketed for towing a 53-foot-long trailer with a heavy-duty pickup.
  • The trailer was hitched to the truck via a pin system, which somehow worked.
  • As dangerous as this was, we couldn't help but be impressed by the Chevy Silverado's apparent capability to do it in the first place.

I guess he must not have a tractor supply in his area, otherwise he might know that they make pintle hooks for towing receivers.

must not have had any thing in the trailer because had it had 40 k in thje trailer there is no way they were going to stop it that trailer had air brakes so to tow it they were caged.

I'm just impressed a Government Motors "truck" could pull anything bigger than a garden cart.

Just sayin' :th_lmao::th_lmao:

If he ever had to stand on the brakes it would have been "wake up, leroy" time. TR, what's the difference between a Ford and a golf ball? You can drive a golf ball a hundred yards, LOL!!

Come to think of it, I've seen worse things going down the road.
Not only did some of them deserve a ticket, but probably some jail time too!

One comes to mind that I took a picture of that I can't find.
A guy had a pickup, pulling a fifth wheel, with a trailer behind that, and a boat being pulled behind the trailer.

Hey Mike, did you know the new GM pickups now come with a heated tailgate. True story, so now when you have to push them in the winter, you can keep your hands warm. :th_lmao:
