Wow John! You may be the biggest draw at the WOG. God forbid you have to take this guy to court. I park the coach on the street somehow so the judge could see it. Case closed.

I hope you can get the coach fixed. These are some tough birds. I just saw a video of a brand new plastic coach ripping its side out when it pulled off from a gas pump. Ripped the rear axle out. Had to have bent the frame, they could not close the door anymore. https://youtu.be/kLNzhB6hPz4

I saw another video (retired. lazy) of a BB (I think) rolling off a wrecker wheel lift on a hill. I don't think it was on the WOG, another online forum. Owners dropped the camera. Sprinted after the coach. The tow driver almost went under the wheels when he went for the door. Owner gets in, tries to get in the seat at the very same time it hit a big curb. He went flying. He said he thought they hit a car. Wound up in a big field. They towed it off and it was fine but for a bent wheel. Another video out there, was for sure a BB. On its side. They righted it and it drove off.

We will be in late Monday.

This is rough John. It can be fixed. There are a few parts around.

I think this was a case of being too big.

Sorry to hear this! Must be a younger distracted driver. Seems like other vehicles tend to give a wide berth. Hope your repair process goes easily and the other driver well insured. I remember there was an outfit on the west coast of Florida north of Tampa that did body work and were well regarded.

Didn't see you? Guess you were running in Bluebird's legendary stealth mode.
You really gotta watch that, especially on the freeways. Maybe your cloaking switch broke? I know these darned ole bird are very hard to see. lol

Another reason I was so adamant about changing all our lights to brighter LEDs.

Glad no one was hurt. He, obviously doesn't need to be driving.

Glad no one was hurt John. Hard not to see a big coach like our Birds.


Leaving Saturday morning I95 to I10 to I75 as the FL turnpike is horrible.

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.

Wow, so sorry to hear you got tangled up with some lame brain that couldn't see you! Glad you guys are ok and that is all that is important, but I know how tough it will be to get it back the way you expect it to be. This clown's insurance company is not going to be happy when they find out how much it will cost
