Don't make it a bad trip....

on my way to work, i noticed the opposite traffic being blocked by what it looked like an 18 wheeler.....As I got closer I realized it was a fellow camper TT.
This was definitely not a good trip for thhem but notice the facts...what it looks like an F150 double cab, towing what it looks like a no less than a 28 footer Trailer WITH a glof cart behind it....are you serious? ...I'm hoping everyone was OK since I didn't noticed any ambulances or helis in the area.....Drive Safe my friends.

Lucky if no one was hurt. Insurance company will be asking a lot of questions.

Classic example of you can never have too much truck. Family safety is first and foremost.

Probably plenty of truck.
Just too much tail wagging the dog!
Or too much golf cart, slinging the tail, which rolled over the dog.

This nearly happened to my dad when I was a kid. He was bringing home my brother's Firebird on a big Uhaul car carrier behind our Econoline. Turns out the surge brake controller was completely useless. Long downhill, he couldn't slow it down. Trailer was pulling him across all 4 lanes, and actually dented both sides of the van's bumper. But he rode it down, braking hard only when the trailer was directly behind him. Changed his shorts and limped home.

I agree, Our family safety is foremost and above all our # 1 priority....
I don't think anyone was hurt (thank God) but......
if you look real close at the second pic, you will notice the driver sitting on a camping chair between the truck and the trailer......

Yikes, glad to see they came out alright.

With that setup he was pulling, his insurance agent is the last person he wants to talk to right now!

I'd be surprised if the insurance agent knows any better, or will look into the capacity specs for the truck. I think he was over loaded.

Two things an Insurance Company are after in an accident:
-How do we get out of paying or paying very little
-Who else is at fault that can pay for the loss
