I come across this video which is good for showing the effects of weight distribution on a trailer. There has been a few incidents over the many years of folks having issues. Heck, even members of this board.

Cool demo. Looks like U-Haul got their demonstrator design from the Brit professor.

Good demo. I would have thought they'd have given a bit of info on tongue weight. That also is important and little attention is paid to it.

I think the full version of the UHaul version has more info.
