Umm... What's the problem here? [emoticon]


Over the summer we were in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We were playing tourist one day and stopped at a gas station for a bathroom. Saw a large trailer like this being pulled by a Nissan Armada. Same thing, no WDH and nearly hitting the ground at the back end. The plates were from somewhere down south. I have no idea how they made it that far towing like that.

If I had air suspension I’d deflate it when I parked just to set off this kind of fussing. I’d add some stick on bullet holes.

What is weird, is how short the tongue on that trailer appears to be, must be an illusion from the pics. Doesn’t look like you could round a tight corner without kissing the trailer with the tow rig.

If the suspension isn’t blown in that Escalade then, yeah there’s something seriously wrong with the setup.

Even the wt distribution should have more of an impact.

Maybe he’s from the Carolinas, some of them like that look even without a trailer.

I thought the same thing. Probably on air bags. I had an S-10 with hydraulics that would do that front and back.

Add a couple strips of yellow Police Warning Tape to make it more interesting [emoticon]
