If you spend enough time towing a trailer, you are bound to have some good stories. Personally, I think towing is an art form. Whenever I see somebody expertly back a trailer into a tight spot or driveway, I make sure to give them a man-nod and a thumbs up for a job well done. On the other hand, sometimes hilarity ensues, which makes for a good laugh and perhaps some assistance.
Don’t get me wrong, I have had my share of towing mishaps. There was the time a ratchet-strap tail I had tied up came loose and got caught up in the trailer tire. Busted the ratchet, and snapped to the top of an entertainment center with the percussion of a gunshot. Of course, this just had to happen directly in front of a snowmobile swap meet where multiple buddies happened to be looking around. I sure caught some grief for that one. I’ll take the blame for that, and urge you not to buy ratchet straps at the disposable tool store.
