Trailer Flips - Don't Gamble with your life

RV Videos: Trailer flips on highway as video camera rolls

Please don't gamble with your life or anyone elses. In this video a duallie is towing a LARGE TT in "very" windy conditions. Amazingly the safety chains held and have the rear of the duallie up in the air.

Yes, I am always telling folks to use proper towing equipment ( W/d, sway control, proper size TV, etc.) but in windy conditions as they say this was, it's probably just best to park it somewhere.

Thankfully no-one was injured, and it appears that the only damage was to the TT.

JohnB is on a distinguished road

These things are tragic for sure and every time I see one I try and learn from it. Glad no one was hurt.

1 ton dually or not a 42 foot TT with no WD and no sway control is a no no. While it may or may not have stopped this event you cannot go back and add it after the fact.

Travel safe everyone
