Terrible news. Too often we all overlook our trailers and tow vehicles but that kind of failure could only be decribed as "massive" and "catastrophic"; there's no user blame IMO. I'm sure fixrim can appreciate that at this point he is only out $40,000 in uncovered losses and not worrying about himself or a family of four on the highway that the trailer struck. It had to be a terrible mess; it's disheartening.

This will be a lawyer battle and I can only hope fixrim comes out on top. Sometimes you never know what the hell is going on inside a court room.

I guess they don't understand just how small the race community is and how fast word of something like this will spread. Scene at a racetrack near you...

"Hi Bob, hows the weekend going?"

"Good for me so far Joe, how about you?"

"Pretty good, the rain on the way to the event really makes me sick of dealing the the tarps on my open trailer. I'm thinking about getting a covered one."

"Before you do Bob let me tell you this story about what happened to another fellow racer named Bob that got a Renegade trailer..."

I got it, thanks. I hope it works out for that guy, that sucks he's out $40K and they admit it was a manufacturing defect but won't pay him.

No I meant in general. All the damn Semi's and unsafe drivers. This is just something else to grow that ulcer.
