I have a coworker who did this. Unintentionally. The trailer took a heavy sway from a tractor trailer going by, started wagging, and flipped. Turned out the bracket connecting the sway bar on one side of the trailer A-frame wasn't bolted down.

Needless to say, he doesn't have that trailer anymore.

One of my load bars snapped in two when pulling into a gas station. I drove a thousand miles with one bar to get home. When I traded the trailer in , the rv dealer said the frame was twisted. No idea if the one load bar trip was the cause...... seemed likely to me.

Seems likely, that the tremendous force needed to snap a weight bar, may have been a factor.

I'll bet that was loud.
