    I have pulled a trailer with 21,000 lbs with mine more than once. Local haul, no hiway speeds.

    so regularly pulling a 10K enclosed trailer for a maintenance crew or shoveling crew around town shouldn't be an issue?

    I always thought it was when the brakes won't stop it or hold it on a hill. Live and learn.

    Looks like GCWR is 20,500 lbs. with a GVWR of 14,500, you have some wiggle room. 10k trailer all the time is probably doable but don't think it is designed for it.

    so my 10K enclosed all the time might be pushing it? even if we don't drive much?
