Camping. The ugly and the good

Friday evening we get the camper ready to head to a favorite camp ground that is near by. We get 20 miles down the road pulling our 39ft vengeance with our Chevy dually, when the truck starts to vibrate. Before I could slow down both tires on right rear come off. I was able get slowed down and pulled over while still maintaining control. Called the police to help direct traffic so we could find the tires, only found one. My wife got a ride back to our house to grab our other pickup that we used to pull camper with. Got camper hooked to the other truck and after 3 hours along side the road we decide to head home for the night. Before we went to bed I told the wife that as soon as we got a tow truck for the other pick we were still going to go camping. Made it to our camping spot a day late but still enjoyed the rest of the weekend

Now I know why my brother won't go camping more than 20 miles from home.

My guess is the lug nuts came loose. And when the started to wobble the 2600lb pin weight didn't help matters any

I never owned a pick up truck, let alone a dually one ton.

How many lug nuts are there to attach the wheels on a dually?

All of them came loose? Sounds kinda strange to me.
