Oh dear.

Don't limit the friends you haven't met with arguments you'll never have.

Re: Why trailers have a speed limit.

I had an "almost" similar experience towing a caravan... Hated that thing, following me around all the time, and making me drive slowly....

Was coming home... after a week away, with the grandkids in the car... that caravan was still following me... and we were going at about 50mph.. cos I was nervous of driving with that thing behind me... dual carriageway, going down a slight hill... well, sort of .. when the back end started to wiggle about a bit... took foot off the go pedal, and coasted to a stop into a convenient layby... checked the anti shake bar, it was ok... but a scary time even so.. eventually got back home safe... declaring that was the last time we went on hols with it ... and put it up for sale..

Best thing I ever did.... FREEDOM ! ! ! ! ! ...

Re: Why trailers have a speed limit.

A man as driving up a mountain road when he got stopped by a police car. The policeman said  do you know your rear lights are not working. The driver became very agitated, the policeman said calm down its not that serious a problem, The driver said it may not be serious to you but it means Ive lost a caravan, my wife and two kids!!!!Funny

Re: Why trailers have a speed limit.

Towed traliers and boats in my time, but never a caravan so kudos to those for even trying.

Me, I like to see what's behind me and what's coming up on the outside when overtaking. As for reversing one, I'd rather not even go there even though it is in one direction.
