  1. Wow I saw this as I dropped. My brother of at cadets but I have a question how did it get so far Into the final before becoming stuck??

    • Because the front of trailer is sloped to match the truck cab unit. Its only around half way down where the trailer reaches full height. Hence how far it went in.
