That trailer is much higher then it looks in that photo as a result of being behind that huge truck. A stacker trailer is generally a tad higher then a motor coach to put it in perspective.

It is rather surprising it would not simply snap the hitch off, or twist the tongue of the trailer.

....Those 650's have tough balls from front to back!

Ouch! Glad to hear everyone is okay. Hopefully the cargo damage was minimal.

It's highly doubtful that wind alone just 'blew it over' ... especially if it ended up al the way on it's roof.

No point in speculating though... hope everyone is ok and insurance takes care of everything. Sorry to hear about this.

Everyone is alright, couple of cuts and bruises. Truck and toy trailer belonged to Jim Moore out of Kentucky who also had the 46 OL extreme insanity in DS. The high winds pretty much pulled the truck off the road after it started swaying back and forth. Inside the trailer was a Lambo, 3 harleys, and a spare teague 1200.

Somebody didn't do their homework about high winds, tall trailers and sway bars...

I was wondering if anyone was going to bring that up.. Sway bars and high winds, not a good combination.. Preloading the bars with a solid wind and an over correction from the shoulder wouldnt just "turn the truck over", it would FLIP it on its roof.. which is what it "sounds" like has happened..
