OMG, this is the perfect time to use that line, with an obviously implied sarcastic, but funny undertone. I feel bad for the person who just bought the travel trailer, but this is too good of a situation to pass up to use that saying. I waited years for someone to ask me to call them a cab, so I said "ok, you're a cab!" or when there was an empty seat next to me and someone asked if anyone was sitting there, and I boldly replied "does it look like it?" These are all situations where you have a once in a blue moon chance to use the perfect one-liner in a smart@$$ way, and it so works!

If I were there, I'd definitely stop to help and make sure everyone was OK. But I'm sure it wouldn't be long before I let an inappropriate, sarcastic remark slip out to a complete stranger. Who knows, it might break the ice and make them crack a smile if I said "well, they say your new trailer drops in value the minute you drive it off the dealer's lot..." Either that or I'd get a punch in the face.

Incidentally, I agree with what others said, he or she probably was driving as if there was no trailer in tow. Every once in a while I forget and "almost" make my right side trailer tires run over a curb, but I usually catch myself and pull forward more before turning any further, or making a wider turn. Lucky for me I used to drive a school bus, and that training and experience never left me, and much of it is applicable to towing a 25 foot trailer.
