Wow. That is sobering. Glad no one was hurt. Thank goodness it wasn't at night while people were on board sleeping.

Didn't insurance cover your losses?

I recently asked FMCA to add a safety column to their monthly magazine to review motorhome accidents so that we can all learn and possibly prevent future disasters. Motorhomes have tremendous momentum when traveling. A car would need to travel at over 700 miles per hour to duplicate the impact crash force that a well appointed Class A has at highway speeds. Even while parked, these complex machines are potentially dangerous mixtures of fuels, electricity, water and mechanical systems. They are much more than expensive toys and without proper respect and attention, the outcome of their recreational use can be tragic.

Any lesson(s) you can share with all of us from your tragedy?
