At one time I had a single axle enclosed trailer. I was pulling across a bridge over the Missouri River into Council Bluffs Iowa out of Omaha and hit a piece of metal from a dryer and blew the tire. The trailer was all over the road and took the truck with it, rear doors came open and dumped equiptment all over the bridge even though they were latched(not locked). Something large must have hit the brake, yes the brake 10'6" Tapco, and made the biggest piece of it about 2ft long! Nobody stopped to claim they hit it though. Little Giants got bent, brake destroyed and material everywhere. I will never own a single axle trailer again except for one to pull behind the lawn mower. Had a flat for who knows how long on the 24' enclosed pulling from DesMoines and never knew it till we stopped for fuel and saw the rim with just the bead still on it.
