Whomever they are, they left the awning bumpers on unless they are a different style of holdback straps.

I like the warning sign on the side. Wonder if it would cause problems trying to go into Canada?

Is that one of those "protected by warnings" sign?

Yep. It also wards off Scamp and Casita owners who want to look at your trailer

I wonder what the pin weight is. Truck sets low in the rear. Possibly because the hitch is aft of the axle ?

The pinbox extends substantially forward from the visible bolted joint, so the hitch is not likely much behind the axle. Even if it is a few inches back, that would only make a few percent difference in axle load, although even that bit won't help.

It seems that in current full-size pickups the rear axle weight rating is high enough that the GVWR is likely to be violated before the GAWR(rear), so I wouldn't be too concerned about it.
