Knowing Tongue Weight and Payload For a Tiny House Tow
If there is one topic other than zoning logistics that comes up without fail at a tiny house gathering it is that of towing capacity – tow weight and payload. Understanding the topic is critical for your own safety and those around you.
Imagine you are in a beautiful new 1/2 ton pick-up truck and you are cruising down the Interstate on wheels shaped like plastic Easter eggs or the football from Inflate-gate 2015! The truck would be quite wobbly and hard to control. That is just the scenario you would find yourself in if you try (as shown above) to tow a trailer with improper tow weight.
