On The Road – Rattle Traps We Call Trailers
Are you ever scared by what you see in tow rolling along? Let’s make a collection of photos here just for a few good laughs — Scary trailers on the road.
Sure, we see a wide variety of trailers from high-end RV’s down to Rattle Traps waiting for just the right bump to disintegrate! While we don’t really like to drive behind them, rattle traps are fun to see — if for no other reason than to shake our heads in amazement. Yep, I think we need photos here to share the stimulation.
Upload your best shots of trailers just waiting for a moment of disaster. I call them “Rattle Traps”, but I’m sure there are better descriptors. Use the upload tool on the Submissions Page then we’ll have some fun showing each other the crazy things we see in tow. Feel free to add a comment, a little humor, or a scary thought.
Trailers “Conversion” Should Not Be On The Road
I’ll start it off with this unique boat trailer turned utility trailer. Gotta hand it to the builder in using the things that were available, but I also have to question the sanity of what they came up with. I’m glad it’s parking along side the road instead of out in traffic. While it is an eye catcher, it scares my brain.
Perhaps the scariest part is the license plate. Not that anything is wrong with the plate itself, but the implication that this thing should be licensed as a trailer on the road. I’m pretty sure as a boat trailer it was OK, but like this . . . ? Well, I don’t think they have an issue with the tongue load being too light!
Now It’s Your Turn
Now it’s your turn to submit something fun — or scary — that likely pushes the boundaries of risk for other drivers. What trailer on the road might be better put to rest? Take a photo and submit it here as a customer story. Please let us know in the description that it’s a “Rattle Trap Trailer On The Road“. We’ll post the shots on this page as a wall of shame so everyone can have nightmares while they sleep. Photos and videos are both acceptable.
Thank you, in advance for submitting the photos, comments and experience. Have a wonderful day!
