    It has a potential. If my uncle builds the trailer chances are we'd just hire a ute for the day/weekend.

    Keep in mind, IIRC, NSW road laws dictate the tow vehicle must at least equal the weight of the trailor and load.

    Speed, thrill, and skill

    What I hate -

    Often the cars are unobtanium and bear no relation to anything that I in real life could obtain or experience
    An it harm none, do as ye will

    Approximately 79% of statistics are made up.

    Really? How do you tow a 16,000lb trailer, then?

    how much is that in real measurements? 8 tonnes or so? chuck it on a truck and you'll be fine!

    According to google it's 7 257.47792 kilograms using the devil's measuring system. What had me confused was the law saying it has to be an equal weight. My dad's truck weighs about 5,000lb (2 267.96185 kilograms) and we regularly tow 16,000lb with it.

    Yeah, but I was copying and pasting from the google converter. It was easier than only showing a couple decimal places since I could just double click on the number to select it.

    So if the trailer is braked and the towing vehicle is rated at a lot, then it's fine.
