Ohhh Snap, what's that, it's a dually CCLB on a "cheap" 16'x7' trailer.

The one issue that sticks out is if a chain would have slipped its very possible that it could fall off the back of the trailer. It's on the very edge

It looks closer to the back then it is, there is about 4" of open deck behind the rear tires. And if I sucked at chaining and a chain slipped I'd have bigger problems then the truck moving and would hope the truck would go back not forward, lol.

Uhm yeah, I just kinda blocked that out, lol it stopped fine though. The trailer is kinda bowed in the pic but that's not from the truck. My brother bent I into kinda a bobtail putting some heavy equipment on it a couple years ago.
