The craptastic hitch setup (and maybe a lack of brakes) aside, it's not particularly impressive. The truck isn't supporting any weight. And the trailer only weighs in at about 15,000lbs empty. As long as it rolls, a golf cart could pull it.

Thats what I was thinking. Just think of how much weight racers pull down the highway, many with that same truck.

I don't see a problem. I believe it was Red Green driving.

Article says 3/4 ton and looking at the wheels I think it is. Still crazy.

This is what I read early in the article so I figured 1500... ;
Still pretty crazy!

“Just because you can do a thing, that doesn't mean you should. That's especially true when it comes to towing a 53-foot-long trailer using a standard-issue half-ton pickup.”
