On the other hand, maybe the trailer acted as a buffer, protecting the tow vehicle from a rear impact? The trailer took a bullet for the team!
Thank you, yes nobody was hurt. The trailer did act as a buffer. We barely felt the impact, just felt like I lost brake pressure for a split second.
The other driver tried to run, my father in law chased him down and ran him off the road into our family reunion at the local campground. He was very drunk and confrontational until he realized how many of us there were.
I agree that I hope it is a total loss, I'm not very confident that any local shop would do thorough job if insurance was paying.
