John - I am glad to see you still have that Golden Horseshoe hidden in your bird!!
Also very relieved it wasn't more serious.
That is why I have dash cameras on my vehicles.

Glad your okay.

Thanks everyone!

We're very thankful that no one got killed or seriously injured! The coach is banged up a little but the damage doesn't seem too bad considering what it went through.

Anything else I can do to help..just ask!:D:D:D

Hi Kip,

We actually ended up coming a slightly different way - your way would probably have worked out much better! :)

Hi Chris,

Yeah, I told my wife we should put a tarp around the coach and charge a dollar a look.

Hi Nancy,

He didn't appear to be impaired at all, seemed like a nice guy that just made a mistake.

I think this was a case of being too big.

Hi Rick,

That may very well have been the case.

Have to say John “It didn’t happen!” but I’m sure you must have pictures. Sorry about your luck if it really did happen.

Hi Bob,

I tried the "without pictures it didn't happen" approach but that didn't seem to help.
. :p

This clown's insurance company is not going to be happy when they find out how much it will cost:rolleyes:

Hi Jim,

Like I told Nancy Brookshire, he seemed like a good guy who just made a mistake.

Here are a few "free" pictures. :)

When viewing the pictures, keep in mind that he came down an entrance ramp on our right side, so the initial impact was to the right side near the entrance door. :eek:

From the pictures it doesn't look like it hit hard on that side but that first hit was quite a "bang"! We thought for sure that the right front corner would be all crumpled up!

Tough old birds. I thought for sure it be way worse. Glad its' not so bad you can't travel. I have been watching an RV influencer on YouTube. He has Newell. His water tank leaked a few month (he said he didn't know) and the whole wooden bottom of that basement came out and the tank dropped (at low speed). He sent it in for repair. The techs cut the whole floor out. I comment one word, STEEL. He sent me a question mark and answered back Wanderlodge. He liked that. They put marine grade plywood in. Love our steel coaches.

Could have been worse John, glad no body got hurt...

Randy Dupree 10-12-2019 08:24 PM

I wish we had a pic of the car that hit you.
I would say you lucked out in a big way.

Nancy Brookshire 10-12-2019 08:37 PM

After looking at pictures.....sturdy birdy!!!!
