Wow, that's crazy! I wonder how that happened? Glad to hear everyone made it out okay and I hope they had a change of underwear in the camper! I know I would need a new pair.

Those pictures don't show it well, but that is a 100ft+ deep gorge with vertical clifss on the sides!

If the chains hadn't held, it would of been a much differnt outcome. Scary as hell... I could legit seeing the couple having PTSD afterwards.

That's about 8100 pounds of bare F350 truck then add in the people, dogs and whatever else was in it and you are probably close to 9000 pounds. If it was a long bed, it would start at just under 8400 pounds (mine is 8360 CAT scale pounds, empty). I would say those safety chains along with the trailer frame did more then their job. A change of at least underwear would be handy if that was me.
