Video: Travel trailer wipes out after passing truck

    8

    Oh, this is bad. We do not know the source of this video, but we do know that whoever was towing this trailer had no business passing the truck. We just hope the occupants of the tow vehicle were strapped in tightly. Don’t try something like this.

    Recently I had to stop reading the RV groups on Facebook because all you hear is I have a 1/2 ton pickup and it can tow my 9500 lbs dry RV no problem. You try and explain that it’s not made to do this job and all you get are these senseless Yahoo’s saying you will be fine. Tried to explain many times why you shouldn’t pull trailers over 5000 lbs with a 1/2 but yup you can’t fix stupid.

    Haven’t pulled a trailer for a while (I use an RV with an engine now), but when I did, I had a manual switch that would allow me to apply the brake on the trailer. I think that would have put him back in control.

    There are so many things wrong there. Inadequate tow vehicle for size of trailer, speed, hitch configuration……..I love my Hensley hitch for absolutely no sway safety. With the vehicle he’s towing with it would have prevented this accident.
