    Max towing capacity with pintos type hitch?

    Regular hitches go up to 10000 pounds. My Unimog has a 20 ton pointless hitch. How much can I tow on an Ontario road?

    A good time to invest in spf3000 if you live on the NK penninsula.

    I'm pretty sure you meant a pintle hook, and not pinto or pointless hitches

    Well based on your other thread you're aware of the licensing restrictions. I can't find anything on the MTO's website that mentions specific hitch systems other than the RV exception from last year. It looks to me like the limiting factors are your license and GVWR, and the hitch technology is just a means to an end.

    If you want to go over the G rating it looks like A-Restricted is for you...

    But our trip was different. It was to be a classic affirmation of everything right and true in the national character. A gross physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country. But only for those with true grit.

    And we are chock full of that, man!
