    Was just talking to a buddy that runs that way,

    He had dropped the trailer on the shoulder last night, a loggers trailer hit him. Fortunately he wasn't hooked to it at the time.

    I wouldn't run it like that but if the drivers happy with it and it's secure, have at it.
     
    Another Canadian driver and Numb Thank this.

    Might be thinking at least get the load delivered first and deal with equipment malfunctions later.

    I can’t say I blame him for that so long as pieces of it aren’t flying off.

    Yup, driver will know the trailer condition better than anyone else, that is for sure.

    Get the crayons out and draw a license plate on back of a placard and your golden.
    We had “New Canadian” reefer in our yard using our services to transfer load this week as he had knocked off the right corner of his trailer….gaping hole and -30 this week…

    Was headed up the Lizzy just south of Leduc last week and somehow a driver managed to get the van in the ditch with the truck still straight on the highway. Pretty close to going over, both drives on the left side were at least 6" in the air. Straight section of highway too.

    I’m sure it will be fine but I thought the doors were structural on vans?
