It looks like you might see some improvement in conditions by later tonight...
Ocean overwash closes NC 12 on Hatteras Island | 9 On Your Side

In the meantime, I would seek highest ground on the leeward side and tough it out tonight. Can you move the trailer behind any sort of solid wind-break? (even a 20foot high solid structure (building) will temper the winds for about 60 feet down wind.

It looks like water may be a greater issue than winds for the area: Local News -
The Weather Service forecasts that winds will remain in the range of 35 to 45 sustained with gust of 55 to 65 will into tomorrow. The forecast is for flooding on the ocean side north of Rodanthe will be 4 to 6 feet above ground level. Soundside flooding is predicted at 3 to 5 feet above ground level

I would suggest you make sure your power cable(s) are safe from submerging, dis-connect the sewer hook-ups, secure loose items in and around your campsite (firewood, small branches picnic table) - if the site has large trees check for potential widow makers and see if you can locate outside their crash zone & since you have the option head off to your friends once you have done what you can.

You need to GO and leave the 5th wheel...JUST A WORD OF WARNING, AN 8O MPH WIND WILL FLIP A MOBILE HOME so your little 5th wheel has no chance.

Just a year ago I had to deal with Hurricane Irene in Maryland and my camper was distroyed, we where in it when a tree feel on it...Your safety is more important then a camper..............if you have Insurance then thats great, if not then you will next time, we did while it was in a trailer park for 4 months and the last 2 weeks is when this happen.....
