Actually one is Aimed straight back. Itís My rear view mirror for the box van.

The second one is aimed straight down at the trailer ball. It helps me hook up the first time, and as Iíve discovered, letís me verify the roll up door is closed and latched.

We all learn from our mistakes. Pin/ lock and/or fix your latch.

These trailers bounce and shake more than you can imagine.
My nephew told me once he rode in the back of his friends because they were trying to figure where a noise was coming from. Only went down the road about a mile. He told me he would NEVER do that again.

Me, I had a padlock and the tumblers were sticking and causing the key to jamb. I figured as long as the lock was in, it would act like a pin to keep the doors secure. The doors didn't come open but the lock was long gone when I got home.
