How loading your caravan affects sway. Great Demonstration Video

Do you already watched this video?
I received it on Facebook and I do not know how to remove it from Facebook.
For those who already have Facebook it will be easy to start.

It's a very good simulator.

On the Facebook page that this link will take you, if you look further down the page, you do not see this message with a video showing a model with a car and a trailer on a treadmill?

Woah! Amazing! Once you've seen it, you can't forget it! Must see for newbies like me and for everybody else. Reminds me of some discussion threads about stabilizing bars. I didn't really understand why it all comes down to proper loading. Now I get it and will never forget it!

Thanks Gilles!

(I'm not on FB and was able to see the video regardless.)

Dont load to much because there are Walmarts everywhere where you can resupply.

Thank You Jim.
If it helps to understand the principle.

It happened to me once, a long time ago with a tent trailer. and I saw all of us in the hospital until resume the situation.
I learned...

If it can prevent someone from having this kind of adventure, that would be fine.

Have a good day.
