Don't be so nice. You KNOW that they are doing it wrong. I'd love to see the rest of the trailer.

That is so freakin’ unsafe!
Not hooking the safety chains up is just unacceptable! [emoticon]

No safety chains, yep that is wrong. Wonder if they have trailer brakes?

The truck is overkill IMHO. With this, he could have used a Prius with a class 1 hitch.
