    Math is off on trailer capacity by half a ton! :-)

    "..... Using my trailer as an example, it has a 7,000 pound GVWR and weighs about 2,100 pounds empty. That means I can safely load up about 5,900 pounds on my trailer"

              Seems like at some point I saw a video from Macs tie downs that crossing the straps is not a good idea because if one of the straps fails, the tension from the other will cause the towed vehicle to move toward the side of the trailer.
