I can relate to that.
I have an 18 1/2' car trailer. The empty trailer weighs about 2,000 pounds. It's best to pull it with a dually, or at minimum a 3/4 ton. When I had a shop in town, people would stop in all the time wanting to borrow or rent it. I'd ask what they had to pull it with. Most of the time they'd have an old van with a fishing boat hitch, or something similar. I'd tell them to forget it.
