I have a 2015 Forest River enclosed 6x12 trailer. While driving on a 65 mile insterstate commute, loaded with two small pressure washers and some rakes/ shovels, we hit a bridge transition on the interstate that caused the trailer to disengage from the ball (Mind you, the hitch was locked and pinned, as well as chained).

I noticed in the rearview mirror that the trailer was shifting left to right and not engaged so I pulled to right side of highway but before i could stop, the chains broke which sent the trailer into the ditch, then it cartwheeled landing on its top. What I don't understand is, it was latched down, locked and pinned. It was a 2" receiver socket and the ball is a 2" ball. In my many years of experience pulling an enclosed, or any trailer for that matter, never has this occurred.

The trailer is toast as is my equipment that was in it.

Costly, embarrassing, loss of time and money. Photos and HP report coming.
