Yeah, too bad they can procreate... means more of 'em down the pike...

Sound like conduct disorder, undersocialized, aggressive (DSMIII-R). Same kind of kids that pull the wings off butterflies, etc., etc..

all that I can say is that I hope they are towing it with a 3/4 ton, otherwise, it would most certainly be an irresponsibly unsafe towing experience.......

Only if their running gear is unbalanced!

Just watched it smash. What a waste. I didn't see the point of smashing the SUV or the trailer. Got everybody watching, though.

Complete idiocy. When they set up the scenario to test their rocket-powered emergency brake, they said, "You're on vacation, towing your trailer downhill, and suddenly the brakes go out. What do you do??" Both of us said simultaneously, "Use the trailer brakes!!" We found it interesting that the issue of tow vehicle vs. trailer brakes was never addressed at all.

And couldn't they have at least harvested the Zip Dee awnings before committing the murder?

What a waste.

Couldn't they have destroyed some crummy Mallard or something?

I was wondering if anyone could figure out year and model.

and the sad part is, they wrecked TWO of them. The one they drove off the cliff, and the one with the rockets attached.

By accident I caught just the last few minutes of Smash Lab this evening. What awful BS. You can tell they don't even believe what they are saying - it is all a big "put on" for TV. They just want to well . . . "smash things". Morons.

Well the worst part was that in this episode they strapped rockets to the side of a early 60's 30-foot Sovereign with seven panel end caps. I'm guessing it was a 1962 or 1963 model - you could see part of the original 6XXX Wally # above the rear window. Anyway, the morons then fired up the rockets - actually the rockets fired earlier than expected - the real tragedy was that no one was hurt in the process - maybe an accident would shut these morons down.

It seemed that the trailer survived, but I don't know if it was damaged. The roadway was scorched big time. They need to be put out of our misery for attempting to destroy a rare vintage Airstream. If not, I suspect the will find another way to destroy the trailer in a future episode. Morons.

There should be a law in the total destructions of Airstreams. Sub, Avions, Streamlines, and Silver Streaks. But keep Airstreams for the Ages.
