     How do you even do that?  It is not a dump trailer, so how? 

It is a "frame-less" dump trailer. You can see the hydraulic cylinder hanging down in the front (top).

no caption but I really wonder how the trailer kept from tipping over while moving?

I've seen those trailers "fall" over when raised sitting still on level concrete with no wind.....

In spite of the movies where a run-away tractor/ trailer goes faster without air brakes.....The trailer brakes lock up WITHOUT air. Therefore that is why it didn't roll backwards.

Right, I was refering to tipping sideways.

One of our Peterbilts @ work loses all its air overnight.  If I draw that truck I start it first thing when I get to work and go in the office to clock in and fill out my log book while the air builds.  The trucks are always backed up to a dock so I have to pull forward to be able to do my pre-trip walk around.  Can't move until the air is up.  :(

Looks like a James Bond movie set.

I have told Roger for years, that trailer was holding him back. I was right!
