The old WWII military trailers were designed to float. And, 60-plus years later, they still do kind of float. After getting lowered into the river while sitting in the trailer at the end of a winch cable, competitors get to bail water until everyone is feet wet. Then it is a 300-yard race down river. Only one trailer made it to the end of the race without sinking before getting pulled out.
