The article focuses on the effects of the proposal of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International to apply its SAE standard J2807 to all vehicles with model years of 2011 and above, on the U.S. trailer industry. The standard measures the gross combination weight rating and trailer weight rating. But Clint Lancaster of the National Trailer Manufacturers Association (NATM) says that the proposal aims to raise the ratings and reduce tow capacity. He adds that SAE also plans to revise testing for J684.
