Boat, not RV - but this is why chocks are important

Honestly, I'm not sure if it would be better or worse if he just let it go. Can't tell how much he directed its path.

He got very lucky that curb was there and the boat went that direction. Someone needs to learn how to chock their tires before unhitching or hitching for that matter.

I dont think he controlled it much, it looks like his down hill driveway and going at that angle made it turn that way, but I suppose maybe his weight helped.

To bad there is no sound, but I could just imagine what was coming out of his mouth.

Since it doesn’t appear he was hurt, and it didn’t hit that pickup I can say this....that is funny!

Wheel chocks? Also a reason why I don't like a wheel on the tongue jack. I have had a trailer shift with a wheel on the tongue jack even with chocked wheels. I learned quick and got a cradle chock for the tongue wheel.

You can see a brick on the wall and looks like one in the yard. Guessing he was in a hurry, or got distracted and just forgot.

I bet he never does that again, but I will say I'm glad nobody or nothing got hurt, but also that was funny, don't care what anyone says...

That's just where he wanted it. Now he can hook up and pull straight into the driveway
