The added safety of a truck conversion in a front-end collision is nothing new to the "choir" on this forum.

Last month in Arizona there was a fatal motorhome accident on Route 93. According to the motorhome driver, a Chevy Blazer traveling Northbound hit his new 2005 Tiffin head on. Both were going 60 miles per hour and needless to say, the laws of physics applied (crash force=mass x deceleration).

The five motor home occupants walked away banged and bruised but the Blazer couple died presumably at the scene.

As the pictures of the accident
show, there is little left of the Phaeton front end but both belted front seat (Flexsteel?) passengers survived. An unsecured recliner chair did fly forward and injure the driver's shoulder. State Farm totaled the motorhome and the toad according to the driver.
