    haha I once used a landscape flag to pin my trailer to get home after I lost the regular pin, better than half the people I see around here that don't even put a pin in

    We never used pins until me and my dad and bro where on the highway with an empty trailer and the thing poped of and was yankin us around. Only put i tiny dent on his bumper but was bangin up the under body.

    I also was mowing one time with my equipment on my 6x12 and i pulled down this alley, i hit a pot hole and i heard a big boom "thought nothing of it" and then the tongue of the trailer was dragging and hit another pot hole and stopped me. i was only going a couple mph so nothing broke but wow that would have broken something at 25+mph.

    Always chain and use a pin

    This was back in my rookie years. I loaded my trailer with concrete mostly in the back and forgot to latch the trailer and I saw it come off in me mirrior going up a hill and hit the brakes and slam. I a least I made good humor out of it. This was back in 1991. still haven't given up the tailgate because it's a good reminder for my crews:hammerhead:
