I`l do you one better-
ever try and haul two 1956 chevy 210 station wagons on a single 4 wheel trailer with a grand cherokee?
thats about 4 times what should be on there...and I was behind it-- mom an dad driveing . Once up to 55 the trailer started that gentle swaying, that turned into something only seeing it could describe-- everytime that trailer would jam left or right, I could see moms face, or dads face...and mom was not a happy camper-- dad have brusies on his arm for weeks where she was beating on him .....pop had the brakes locked the whole time....too much weight, it just wouldnt stop. Its as close to jack knifeing as you could possibly get-- that trailer drug the entire jeep sideways both left and right for 50 yards...fast. People dove off the road...it took up both lanes.
In dads words--- "never again". moms words are unprintable- very bad indeed.
