Or tailgates that will open if the frame is twisted a bit on uneven ground.

Solid frames? What uses a solid frame?
I remember a city uncle had a Chevy pickup, one of fancy ones that had no gap between cab and bed. We where behind in fields, but this uncle was pretty useless. Grandma needed chicken feed, so Granddad asked him to take his '51 Chevy half ton to town. Uncle knew Grandma would like the new pickup better. Friend from town brought Grandma and uncle home, because could not open cab doors.

Tailgates typically won't open was my experience in a twisted frame bending mode

My friend had a heavy alpenlite. More weight than our alpenlite. His truck was a 1994 2500 dodge and the tail gate would fall down and he had to buy 3 new front basement doors because of the hole from turning with it down. He always said the bed would spread wider. I felt he was overloaded on the truck. chevman

Put a truck camper on it. That will straighten it right out.

In all honestly once I stopped listening to the chickens with their heads cut off running around forums (towing police) and their nauseating ideas of the correct truck and payload to pull a little red wagon my towing experiences became much more enjoyable.
