old mercedes tow idea

I used to own out of state apts. could not find a decent priced diesel pickup. Ended up finding a 1972 280 euro mercedes for the tow bill (375). Put a hitch ball on it and connected a single axle trailer, loaded up rolls of heavy carpet , and set out from arkansas to new mexico. Car pulled it fine! trailer got out of control, jackknifed three miles into trip , at 35 mph. found out from Tow driver, the trailer had ...12,000 pounds on it . Your truck will do FINE.
