This past Friday, my friend was on her way to join Us and others at Cape Ann CG traveling the Mass Pike. She was 2 vehicles behind a large TT (appx 30 ft) being towed by a Jeep Cheokee. The TT started to sway and then it happened, the combo started to jack knife and spread across 3 lanes of highway before flipping. TT went over first, then TV. Noone was hurt, thank God. I haven't heard anymore about it this weekend.

Glad no one was hurt.
IMO a Jeep Cherokee has much too short a WB to tow a large TT. Just another case of the tail wagging the dog.
