None that I'm aware of. I don't even remember this being in the news at the time.

Are you trying to convince me not to get a trailer? Reminded me of that video I posted up a while
back, where it tipped over while driving, due to gusty crosswinds. I think that one was along Hwy 89
between Kanab, UT and Page, AZ. The road looked familiar.

We did the tour of that area along Hwy 11 on our first trip out in 2009. I have to admit, it was purely
by accident, as we were just following the road to wherever it took us.
It was just before the Acadian Festival, and everywhere you looked there was red/white/blue trim, decorations, and bunting. Reminded us of the US 4th of July celebrations, only nearer to the 4th of
August, particularly near the Caraquet area on the northeastern tip of the Acadian Peninsula.
It's another relaxing driving tour in the Maritimes of Canada.

Kind of puzzling - what makes one trailer blow over and the unit next to it is ok.........................
