    Looks like AZ plates...maybe the driver was towing too much for this truck. Please be careful out there!

    I'm not a super trucker by any means... Most I've ever towed was 119,000lbs (With a HEMTT... Not Tacoma)... But that seems like a lot of trailer for a Tacoma.

    A lot of people have every little experience towing a trailer. But who really knows what happened here.

    It appears to be a crash, not an accident.

    Way more then I can really afford...
    Well, he obviously jackknifed it on the driver's side, then things went downhill from there...looks like St. George, Utah area...
    OOPS...should have read the news story first. Yep, I-15 in St. George. LOTS of curves, and tight cuts through the mountains there, with tricky winds at times...

    I don't see any tow mirrors. No way you can tow with this truck safely with stock mirrors. It looks like there may be a weight distribution hitch, but I cant tell for sure.

    That's what I was thinking. According to the Nash website... The 30 footer is 6192lbs completely dry and empty.
