I'd love to know more about what happened right there. What's the name of that, how come the trailer started to wobble all of a sudden with increasing amplitude?

It was not a fail! This kind of driving is perfectly normal in Poland.

#3 Fish tail happens most commonly when there isn't weight forward of the trailer axle. Excessive speed amplifies the problem. Too much weight forward of the traileer axle can result in a "jack knife" when breaking.

#7 You wont even need cross winds, since the suspension of a trailer like that is close to zero and the center point of weight is very high you dont need much sideways momentum to create a disaster.

also never tow something that's heavier than your vehicle cos it will push you if you brake going down a hill causing jack knife

Rule #1:

If the trailer alone weighs more than your SUV, you shouldn't be towing a car on the trailer as well.

Hi All, I am actually from Poland and know this guy indirectly from BMW forums... He is a good drifter actually, but complete idiot when it comes to towing :D:D Small explanation - he drove ca 90km/h (55mph). the mistake he did - he had too light towing car (wagon), of course weight center was too far from the towing hook etc... Instead of breaking to activate trailer brakes, he accelerated or did nothing... and NO - it is not normal way of towing in Poland - said Estonian who cause lots of accidents in Poland in their trucks driving drunk like shit!!!

PS. indeed - we use kurwa for spaces, commas, dots, anxiety, disguise, happiness, being pissed off etc... heh (half of language as you say) ;)

Have experienced this when I had the license for a year, but not that brutal. Found out that its better to have the car on the trailer backwards, with the front with the engine behind the trailers wheels. Or the towing vehicle should be much larger....

Because the side to side motion is similar to the way a fish's tale moves when it is swimming.
