The basic issue is not the actual weight of each unit, but the total gross weight rating.
If his trailer weight rating is 21,000 LBS, that leaves only 5,000 LBS weight rating for the towing vehicle.
Not going to find a truck with a 5,000 LB or less rating that will pull the trailer.
Again, it is not just about the load, it is about the capabilty of the two together, no matter if empty, loaded, or worse yet, over loaded which gets you in much deeper in your wallet.
He will need at minumum a CDL, million in liabilty, fuel tax and filing all of that every 3 months, etc.
It is more trouble that is is worth unless you are running a full on hauling service, in which case you would likely have a semi.
