I understand that you consider Hensley or Pullrite proponents fanatical, but you're the only one I've ever debated the merits with, and that includes a lot of engineers, who has ever asserted the Hensley is more dangerous
Sorry but you are not even reading what I wrote as I have never castigated the handling or capabilities of the Hensley.

What I have objected to is the hubris as in
The difference between us is that I can put these things in terms most people can understand.
and the complete failure to address basic facts that I present.

By the time the angle between tow vehicle and trailer is 15 degrees, which would be very early in a jacknife, the pivot is back behind the rear bumper, not, as you state
again you misperceive what I have said and followed this with deceit in a degree of precision way beyond anything I presented.

I also find ignorant insults such as
would much better serve themselves by listening to Reese, Draw-Tite, and other credible manufacturers, with a long history in the business, rather than you.
rather telling - how do you know my qualifications or lack thereof? Whyare they an issue rather than the facts presented?

All I have suggested is that any driver of a trailer rig consider a few facts and, nothing more and nothing less. I think the ideas and facts should speak for themselves.

The fact is that the inertia of the trailer is going to be very dangerous in slick road conditions no matter which hich you use. It is extremely foolhardy to pretend otherwise or to pretend that some particular hitch configuration is going to magically make things safe.

One of the best times to go skiing, IMO, is the Spring. If you wait until then you will have a great time, won't have to worry so much about getting caught in a storm, and the temperatures will be wonderful for skiing and camping. The snow is deep and the sun is out!

Personally, having lived in this area for over 17 years, I would not want to be traveling I-70 in snow and ice! I can't even comprehend towing a trailer at this time, in this area.

I remember one time when we lived in Louisiana we came to CO to ski and the temperatures were below 10 degrees for the entire week - this was at Thankgiving!
