Visual Demonstration of the affect of tongue weight and how it affects towing

I didnt see this posted anywhere else. Just in time for summer travel, I stole this video link from the Ford Super Duty site. It shows in a straight-forward simple way how load distribution affects handling in real time with a working model.

I just got around to viewing this. Pretty straight forward. I think it would be helpful to a lot of new RVers .
Thanks Mark.

5th wheels are different in that the pivot point is over or slightly in front of the axle not 2+ feet behind it. By design there is no sway so the affects of load placement would not affect the "Tail wagging the dog"as in the video.
