A driver and dog miraculously walked away from this out-of-control camper accident on a highway outside Newton Abbot, UK. Dashcam video shows the car pulling a camper wobbling before flipping over twice. “Everyone was fine. Some small cuts from flying glass,” the trucker driving behind the wreck reported.
They are quite lucky :)

Towing a long trailer and passing trucks can be problematic. I've got a 33 foot trailer towed with a long bed crew cab F350. The "bow wave" coming off the front of big rigs will usually put pressure on the side of the trailer causing a bit of sway like that for me.

But, too much speed, not being ready for it, poor weight distribution, and drivers who don't know how to react will suffer similar fates. I've seen it happen before, speed is often an issue. Unfortunately some think that simply connecting the trailer to the vehicle is all you need to understand.
