    No that was the tilt bed option only available on the '98 Dodge Dakota model. It allowed lowering the trailer hitch when the bed was tilted up, like in the video.

    I would like to see the owner's face when he comes to collect the (inevitably late) rent. And discovers the sewer, water, propane, lines ripped out because they 'didn't think of that' when they moved the trailer.

    Hahah, two piece "dump bed" ready dodge frames. Strong enough to dump a furnished single wide, just watch. His truck kind of looks like a dog doing the booty scoot across the yard, maybe he should get it checked for worms.

    I love the "Trailer Fail" thread. We need to try harder to keep this thread tracking straight down the road. It has been swerving off topic lately. Kind of like this idiot :

    https://kstp.com/news/runaway-camper...5421619/?cat=1

    An SUV pulling a camper led police and Minnesota State Troopers on a pursuit before flipping Friday night.

    It happened on Highway 10 in Coon Rapids, just north of the Highway 47/Highway 610 interchange, at around 8:20 p.m.

    The SUV pulling the camper was headed east on Highway 10, followed by five squads.

    As the SUV approached Egret Boulevard, it swerved and the camper tipped, ending the pursuit. The driver was then seen on traffic cameras exiting the vehicle and surrendering to authorities.

    Looks like the used a spike strip to stop him and he either swerved to avoid the spikes or lost a tire when he hit it. You can see chubby lumber out and retrieve them .

    Seems like an unnecessary mess to me.

    All of those cop cars could have easily passed him then slowed him down.

    Reminds me of the “OJ pursuit “


    Also
    I think anybody failing to pull over
    Deserves a severe night stick beat down.

    But unfortunately the good old days are over..

    Cameras are everywhere.


    I have my father-in-law‘s night stick and blackjack from the 50s.

    There are battle scars all over it.

    Back in those days you had respect for the police .... or else.

    Who said he was trying to move the trailer? Look's to me like the little green peek-up is just taking a crap before hooking onto the trailer.

    Take a look at the link farmersamm posted in thread#3000 to see the video of the truck trying to move the trailer.

    That Durango by itself never stood a chance of outrunning just one of those patrol units, much less pulling a trailer. The guy should have given up before ever putting it in gear to TRY to get away. There's probably something much worse than a traffic citation that this guy is guilty of to make him try to run, maybe the details of what it is/was will come out later.

    Maybe he just couldn't see the squad cars in his mirrors as the trailer was blocking his view?

    No way that's even 12000 lbs of trailer let alone tongue weight. probably closer to 900 lbs of tongue weight, but it was the safety chains that kept it on.
    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    Man cited after historic bridge collapses from weight of semi

    Authorities say a man was issued an expensive citation after he drove a semi, which was well over the weight limit for a historic North Dakota bridge, onto the bridge, causing it to collapse.

    The Grand Forks County Sheriff's Office said Michael Dodds was driving a 2005 Peterbilt semi truck, which had its trailer loaded with dry beans, west on 3rd Avenue NE, southwest of Northwood, North Dakota, at about 1:15 p.m. on Monday.

    About 1.5 miles southwest of Northwood, the sheriff's office said Dodds drove the semi over a 56-foot long restricted-weight bridge over the Goose River. The bridge was rated for 14 tons gross weight and had marked restrictions, while the semi truck was just over 42 tons with the load of beans.

    The sheriff's office said bridge collapsed as Dodds was driving on it, and the semi-trailer was hung up on the west abutment. Dodds wasn't injured in the incident.

    According to the sheriff's office, Dodds was issued an overload citation of $11,400. The office said the estimated cost of replacing the bridge is between $800,000 and $1 million.

    Not saying the driver was in the right. Wonder if there was other routes available that met his weight load. Quite a few rural places have no access for hi wight loads. Even 80,000 lb “standard” loads.

    I just google satellite viewed what I think is the bridge (just east by southeast of air field that's south of Northwood) and it looks like he coulda gone north on east side of airfield, then head west over a sturdier (from satellite view derived knowledge.......) bridge. Still, feel sorry for the driver, that sucks.

    I went North a week and change ago. A covered bridge in Linden was closed. I never gave it a thought. These wooden bridges get closed regularly. They were built for horses, not trucks. At any time there are several in VT being redesigned to accommodate heavier loads, while retaining their "charm" ... or at least what a millennial engineer interprets as charm.

    I got home in time to see a follow up on the TV news. There were several camera angles as a 13'6" truck drove through a bridge clearly posted as 12' high. Damage was enormous!
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.
