ROLLOVERS

Today's trailers are constructed with more aluminum and lighter metals on the frame, axles, and rims to allow for more freight. It also means you have considerable more weight above the deck than below.

This creates a top heavy condition. Air bags will also give 10% on turns. With a top heavy trailer, wind and air bags adding 10% of leaning going into a curve, your chances for a rollover are greatly increased. To reduce your risk, always approach turns and ramps 5-10 MPH under the speed limits in adverse conditions, including wind and rain.
