    Trailer Towing the Einstein way....

    A mate of mine was cruising past this brain wave...








    If you have a close look at the safety chain it is joined together and just sitting over the towbar tongue in front of the tow ball



    It looks to be handling well, then he noticed it's because heis towing with the jockey wheel on the ground...

    About 30 minutes after taking these pics' he gets a call to a prang about 10 k's from where he took the pics...

    He's actually quoted the guy 80 bucks to tow it 30km on a Sunday...











    only has a shit 1200kg tow bar

          In the 4th pic it looks like he has just joined the safety chains and draped them over the tongue as well as everything else thats wrong with the setup

            So he noticed the jocky wheel was down and didn't let them know?
            Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

                      Lol, as soon as I saw the tow vehicle and the piece of string holding the 2t 4wd on the trailer, I knew where this was going. Also $80 for a 30km tow is bloody cheap, and the fact that the dude thought it would be cheaper to tow it himself just adds to the win. Nice post Towie, I too am in the towing game.

                        I'm surprised the tow ball was the point of failure, given that the towbar looks to be one of those 1200kg jobbies.

                          However I thought this was another of those towie threads where only licenced professionals should be allowed to tow a box trailer but I was happy to be wrong.

                            You'll find the point of failure was a numpty losing control. The tow ball would have sheared after it jack knifed.

                              I also wondered what the hell was he using to keep the 2 ton 4wd on the trailer... also how it bent the structure of the trailer too.
