How long does that TT look to you? Looks 40 or more to me.
I know I really don't like pulling our 34. We're seasonal or else I wouldn't own one that long. Except we might go to the Goshen rally 2.5 hours away. But we do have WDH and sway control system.
With a WDH and Sway control, is it possible the wind would not have compounded the swaying? It looks like the wind helped it over when it was swaying....like it got some velocity sideways and the wind took advantage of that and finished the job.
I found where the owner/tower stated it was a 42' destination trailer. I took his quote from utube. He was replying in his defense:
I've learned that you shouldn't make derogatory accusations about a person without having all the facts in your arsenal. Let me educate you on who the "idiot" is. This 42' Destination model is not to be pulled cross country. You place it in a permanent spot. Driving speed was 40 mph, which is 30 mph below posted limit. The next exit was 10 mi away. We planned to stop there if this hadn't happened. As a professional driver I decided the gusts (65-70 mph) were too dangerous to go on. The "Moron"
I always thought 40' was the maximum allowed to tow by a layperson. I thought after 40', had to be towed by a professional large load towing company.
I pull a 42' fifth wheel. The only laws in MD that really apply are weight limits and distinctions needed for my drivers license (need a non-commercial class A license because I'm over a gross combined weight of 26,001 pounds).
Otherwise- there are length restrictions in many states. For instance, again here in MD, over 55' means that I am supposed to stick to interstates and then take the most direct route once I get off of the highway.
Besides the problems for they guy towing the trailer, I couldn't help noticing how the guy shooting the video was tailgating. The distance from the vehicle in front of him was about 0.8 seconds, based on how long it took him to reach a cone after the vehicle ahead passed it.
