Pickup trucks are the backbone of any working man or woman’s inventory. Endlessly versatile and durable they can tackle any task; you wouldn’t be wrong for having one as a daily driver. They are, in fact, so useful that you could run an entire business out of transporting loads from one place to another. That is if you know how to use them. Despite all a truck can do for you, you better be smart enough to use it. Yea, we understand how ridiculous that sounds, but take for example the video below. Two good ole boys (bless their hearts) attempting to load up a Chevy truck with a bum clutch and a bed loaded down with tires proves that common sense, just isn’t’ that common these days. This should go without saying folks, but please NEVER try this at home.
If you ever wanted to see how mistakes can add up to a disaster quickly – watch this video now.
As part of a PSA to all of our viewers, we came up with a step-by-step satirical guide of how to load your trailer like a dummy.
Step 1) Let Your Trailer Do All The Work
If you use your truck for work you should keep it maintained, right? Wrong. Devote all the money you make from the truck elsewhere. Your trailer will do all the work if you’re in the need for some large hauls. If you just buy a trailer to tow you every time your ignored clutch fails yet again, it’ll just tow you right out of your situation. It’s fool-proof.

Step 3) Double-Check To Make Sure Your Truck Bed Is Completely Full
Despite that your pal advised against it, you start realizing you may have overloaded your truck. It’ll be fine. You need to cash in on all these balding tires. There’s no turning back now.
Step 4) Drop It In Gear And Head For The Trailer
Now that he has lowered the trailer loading arms and stared at them for several seconds it is time to talk. Should you easy on to the ramps? Should you unload the tires now and push it on the trailer? Should you, I don’t know maybe have your buddy put on his breaks to offset the weight of your overloaded haul? Nah, skip all of that. There is still some life left in your Chevy’s clutch. Drop it into gear, gun the engine, and get a move on.
Step 5) Keep Driving; Don’t Stop
Uh oh! The trailer and his truck are both moving. This would probably be the best time to stop pressing the gas, but you are almost onto the trailer, victory is so close. Oh, and definitely keep driving toward that large metal pole.
Step 6) Inspect the Damage
Okay, so maybe stopping would have been a good idea. At least your buddy ran after you, what a friend, and now you both can each admire how the day went from one ruined truck to two. But hey! Surprisingly you didn’t lose any tires…
