5er hitches are great, but it's the trailers attached that are an abomination. Plus one is stuck with a pickup. Even as simple as that type is to dial in on a scale, it's apparently common to be...

Did you post up your Scale tickets with the F150?
Some pics of the rig?

That practice pre-dates your efforts.

I'll take the bet. I put my rig thru maneuvers you wouldn't dare after having bought a Hensley. Can no more shake the trailer out of alignment than you can lose your shadow. Can't wait to see the...

I spent 40-hours cleaning a clean trailer when I sold the last one. And took a couple hundred photographs as practice. Used lights covered by wax paper, etc. wanted to do justice to the TT. (Link in...
