I'll say one thing though, if that'd been a fiberglass SOB, they'd have had to close all of the lanes because the contents of the trailer would be strewn across the entire highway.

I'm sure it's not in great shape inside, but Airstreams sure seem to hold up made better than the competition when they get rolled.

With all the 'WD hitch talk' here, it would be interesting to know the details of the incident...looks like the hitch is still hooked to the TV, or least the chains held...sure hate to see that happen - it's a slippery world out there this time of year - drive safe!

I would be interested to know what happened as well. There are no visible dents or damage to 5 sides of it (the 6th side sitting on the asphalt probably doesn't look so great). Seems strange to me--could you really be traveling at interstate speed and just dance it up onto its side without even damaging anything else?? Just seems odd.

youtube's hugely lossy encode adds a lot of video artifacts, so it's difficult to get any decent screen caps (on top of original capture quality)... but something looks funky near the a-frame
does this model have a spare under there?

btw- don't see any "orange" at the tongue

Ouch! What really hurts is it looks as if it was a brand new unit...notice no license plate!

Looks like the owner was carrying a little extra weight.
