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


Personally, I'd've shot more pics, then called 911. No excuse! Not even funny. Just about as bad as drunk driving, IMO.

Not knowing the nature of the trailer other than the lack of safety chains I see nothing wrong. It looks funny but it could add up.

I personally can't take credit for the pic. Was on another camping site I frequent.

It looks like it would at least soften the hard bumps [emoticon]. Given his hitch I'm curious what he did to his bedliner.
