Well now you have seen 21 of them. LOL Listen, im not exactyly 100% sure weather Im within legal means or not. All I know is that the trailer has tandem brakes and stops great. Truch has plenty of power for what I need it to do. If the road nazzis pull me over and give me a ticket for not having dot #s well then ill go get them. I live out in the sticks, never get on highways and just plain ole dont want to give my money away............. I have a 3/4 ton 2005 chevrolet hd in the driveway to I just don 't like trashing my newer truck............ Will my 3/4 ton need dot #s also. Not being a smart ass or anything....... I just dont see the need. If I were in fact hauling a heavy trailer or load I would understand but come on........... We haul lawnmowers for goodness sakes. Ive been doing this stuff for 14 years on my own now and have never been questioned...
