The classic dangerous duo rolling down the highway. I notice this all the time (a lot more since joining the trailer industry.) Obviously the trailer in the first picture is loaded heavily in the front, resulting in too much tongue weight. Another risky situation is too much tail weight. When the back of the trailer is loaded too heavily it can be harder to tow and can result in injury when unhooking.
Proper weight distribution is an important aspect of trailer safety. If your truck and trailer have been looking like either of these pictures, don’t worry, just watch this video to learn how to prevent problems on the road. And if you’re a seasoned trailer loader, pass this knowledge on after you see the handy tips in this video. I love the level idea that they show us!
