I don't think so, although I suppose they could be that way. The safety chains are there to keep the trailer attached, a backup in case something on the hitch breaks loose.
On my 2007 Airstream we would cross the chains to form a cradle to catch the tongue if it fell loose, on this new one the chains are attached at the same point on the tongue, so they cannot be crossed.
