This Is The Hitch I Want

There's a lot of good discussion about what hitch set up is the best. I've made up my mind - I want whatever this guy has...!

If you get the main page click the International tab and see the Video for Vehicle Dangles....

You have to go to the bottom and click on the tab that says, "International." This gives 24 videos, one of which is "Car dangles..."

WOW. They were VERY blessed in that accident. It looks like they were seriously over their towing limit with that big trailer. They said they hit a "bumpy patch" and lost all control of the rig.

I will be the odd man out here (again)

Maybe I am just weird, but I want a hitch that will keep me from being in that situation....

Until I got the sound turned up on my computer, I
thouht it was a picture of Kevbo valet parking a SOB!

I'd like to what kind of hitch, wd, sway control he was
using. Looks like it let it get away from him.

I'm glad they had the presence of mind to turn on their emergecy flashers. I'm sure that helped a lot.

I was waiting for someone to notice that - thought it was pretty funny also. Notce at the beginning he's collected his W/D bars too. Gotta admit they're pretty calm about it....
