Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb!

We saw one that was a combo of two of these picutres. S-10 Blazer, no weight or sway, just on the ball with the chains on (which snapped, as you'll read a bit later on). The behind of the trailer must have been making this S-10 sag.

When I got there, it was only about 1 minute from when it happend. I was on my way back from the Midwest Rally in Mackinaw. S-10 sitting, after rolling, on it's driver's side. RV in the grassy median, dog that was in the trailer, running down the Interstate.

Man, who looked like he was the driver, standing out the rear passenger, wife or girlfriend, standing out the passenger side front window, both looked like deer in headlights. Blood, cuts, scratches...dunno if any more serious injuries.

The tralier broke up and their stuff poured out as the trailer rolled to a rest in the grassy median of the highway.

I bought a Suburban to tow the 25' Safari when I got home and stopped towing the Safari with my Chevy sedan, even though I had all the right gear that this guy didn't, it was that moment when I realized it just wasn't worth it.
