While going down to Florida a couple weeks ago we were slowed approaching the Florida State line. It seems a travel trailer going north must have rolled over. The trailer looked like a flat bed with debris everywhere. Three guys were trying to load what they could back on to the trailer. Everthing above the floor was gone.

Have seen quite a few of these accidents. I think sometimes peope forget that they are pulling a trailer and go to fast. If the tire pressure is down on the trailer tires it will cause it to fish tail and that is trouble. I speak of this from a personal experience.

And people don't understand why we try to discourage RVers from allowing anyone to ride in a 5th wheel, even if it's legal....
