Hey, don't laugh. I did that once with a '68 Shasta, 21 foot. I had it behind an Astro. Rounded a curve, and the thing started fishtailing, before long, I watched the thing come around and come off the hitch and roll a couple of times. The van did a 360 in the middle of US 127 and all the tires peeled off, it didn't roll though. My daughter didn't even get scared. I just hung on, after a bit, theres nothing to be done anyway, just enjoy the view out the windows as the scenery changes. Somebody was watching out for me, like He always does. I learned a lot and am trying real hard to keep the Airstream behind me and on the road. The wife will be real disappointed if I wreck this trailer.

Gee...

Looks like an Explorer with a blown right rear tire. I wonder if that was cause, or effect?

...and I thought all along this was a left angle hook up. Silly me.

Is this the Hensley rule where you have to hook up at exactly the same angle you unhooked?

I just took a closer look...

And it looks like there is something stuck up under the front bumper. Wonder if they hit something in the road, and that is where they wound up? If that's the case, all the sway control in the world woudn't have stopped it.

It has a flat tire (Right Rear). May be that started the hole thing.
