It was "that road". However it is hilly and very undulated at points with poor road surface. I strongly suspect it bounced off. I've seen a mirror dinghy come off there and pass the car in front if me that was towing it.

I'm with Biffer on the chaining the trailer to the car. I'd far rather the thing used the back of mine to stop rather than anybody else !
If you have the load nose heavy as it's supposed to be it'll drag along the road & HOPEFULLY wedge itself under the rear without too much damage.

It makes sense to me as well, if you are behind a boat or caravan which becomes uncoupled the safety chain snaps and pulls the handbrake on stopping it dead only for the car behind to run right up its a*se due to no brake lights.

Funny enough you have to use a chain on unbraked trailers, so why not braked.

When I bought my rib last year the previous owner was completely baffled when I looped a ratchet strap around the eyes on the transom. According to him he towed it from Manchester to the Rhine with only the painter wrapped around the front of the trailer!
