The effect of trailer loading on sway events- video

This is THE most clear example of the effect of trailer cargo-load weight distribution on inducing trailer sway. The brief video was put out by the Australian Road Safety Commission.

Hopefully the brief video will continue to be available.

Good Video. Anyone who tows a trailer should know this already. However many do not.

Tongue weight is essential for safe trailering.
