    Someone had a really bad day!

    Driving West on I-90 between Buffalo, NY and the PA State line today, I saw this Rockwood Ultra Light. Ratchet straps were holding the walls upright. it looks like there was a fight with a low bridge and the bridge won!

    Ouch ! That's going to take a lot of Eternabond, Dicor, and caulk. Hopefully the fridge is keeping the beverages cold.

    Oh man! Peeled the roof and rear wall clean off! Brutal. The bridge or canopy got the upper hand. I tried to help a 5er owner while up at Seneca Lake this weekend who shaved his front air conditioner off on a fuel island canopy. He was not receptive, and ended up causing more damage to rig and canopy... All he needed to do was let the air out of his TV's rear wheels and back out, but...

    Good on you....some people just let their ego get in the way despite help knocking on the door.

    Ego, or anger, but in any case you tried. Me in the situation of the person in trouble? I'll listen just because I'll be so damned depressed about it. I may do it my own way, but I'll listen!

    I can relate. My 2019 28BH was 4 months old when I was rear ended. Four months in a repair shop and a $16,000 bill to the other drivers insurance company and I had it back. Luckily, I found a really good repair shop that specialized in heavy/complicated RV repairs on the west side of Phoenix. They were not an RV dealer so I was not competing against RV's in for warranty work and shop time. The entire back wall had be replaced. The accident happened after the 28BH changed to the current bunk room setup but Grand Design was able to make a replacement back wall. The repair shop made it look good again.

    Is this what happens when you put a bike rack on your rear bumper?
