I saw this video early this morning. Made my stomach knot up. Just looking at the shape/underside of that TT it looked just like our V-Lite. (smh) And that TT looks brand new! Their underliner looks pristine clean. I feel so bad for that couple.
We had an F150 Eco Boost when we bought that V-Lite, and yeah, the salesman told us we could pull it just fine. He was right...that Eco Boost will pull its guts out, but (in DH's words) "it just didn't have enough ass" to pull that TT safely. To me (in my uneducated words) the truck just never seem "connected to the road". Yes, 'tail wagging the dog' is a perfect description. Pulling it? sure...pulling safely and comfortably? not so much and then there's shutting it down.
We uptraded to an F250 and the difference was amazing. The ride felt solid to me, like the truck and TT moved as one, and sat solid on the highway.
Those WD hitches require solid concentration to remember to do it all, and ours didn't have the WD pins like the one in the picture. Our arms had to be swiveled parallel with the bumper, slapped up into the hitch, then swung back perpendicular to the bumper. But there were cotter pins to remember at the saddle mechanism once the chains were hooked. Then there were the safety chains, the safety breakaway brake cable, etc., etc.
It got to the point that I was going over the steps, out loud, to DH for the first 1/2 mile out of the driveway, and that was after we'd both gone over the steps at least twice after hook-up and a visual check of all lights.
It appears this couple was lucky. No injuries evidently.
