sundowner trailers

Hi! Somewhere I heard that sundowner trailers jackknife on rough roads if they are empty. Is this true or just a rumor?

I have 2 horse one, but I removed the divider making it into smaller stock trailer. My horses like space and at least one can turn in trailer and jump off (2nd one doesn't realize yet she can do it lol!) instead of backing off.

I have a Sundowner trailer but have never had a problem with going down rough roads. I think any empty trailer would run the risk of jack knifing on a rough road it driven too fast. Mine is a 2 horse BP with Small LQ.
