5 ton limit. Not a lot of room to spare. If any.

This bring me in mind a situation 2 years ago. I was pleased after standing on the other side....
No limits, no sign. Just your own risk

5 tons...I think I'd have to do some of thinking on that. My van would be pushing the limit. The other picture is a no brainer...NOPE

Yes, my van is probably over with a couple people and dog and gear. But I figure they factor some extra in there, right?

Second one's all metal! I'm sure it'd be fine!

Re: Small Bridge, Big Van

Yeah, what is it they say, a good engineer rates it for about a 1/3 more. It's still pucker power going across Great Pic though. Get the right angle and send it to SMB. Maybe they'll stick you in the Overland Journal
