Fascinating sway demonstration!

This was posted to the Twitter account of the Ontario Police Commercial Vehicle Committee. Fascinating to watch...

Oops! I searched but didn't see that.
Still, it is a good demonstration!

TW matters.

But what is missed not only by SAE in J2807 and in a demo like this is the wind resistance and sail area of a travel trailer.

Interesting. The trailer is not pushing on the truck when it happens . just. Unstable due to loading. No way you would have time to apply just trailer brakes if that would even help.

An equalizer hitch is nothing but a bandage for not having the correct tow vehicle!

I think you may have this backwards. A larger/heavier tow vehicle is actually a bandage for an incorrectly set up hitch.

Ignorance is not a barrier to learning

But lack of open mindedness will be.
