Any questions about structural problems?
First ..whilst these pics have been posted before , I wouldnt fancy my chances supposing the transom was made of blooming 'Kryptonite' when 40 tonne hits it the wrong
Second .. that transom looks like it has double knees on it, no wonder its stronger than the op's transom, particularly as its also fitted with a massive spreader plate .. hmm wonder what that suggests ?
Third .. there are no close up photos of the transom to verify what you say .. although I don't doubt it, if the trucks radiator absorbed a sharp outboard leg, and the trailer bounced favourably, whilst its draw bar collapsed absorbing energy too.
