I remember our first trip and our first night with our 1981 Vangaurd 24’ bunk model trailer many years ago. Our kids were small and we went to a forestry campsite only 20 miles from our home. I woke up to the rain hitting the tin roof of the trailer and just lay there grinning and loving the sound and all cozy and warm. A few seconds later I think…Oh crap I wonder if the awning is ok. I look out the window and sure enough the awning has this large bowl of water in it. I take off out side in my underwear and try to gently lower the far side post to slant the awning. As soon as I lift the lever to the leg it slams down with a thunderous crash and 50 gallons of water comes crashing over me as I was standing outside of the awning and my underwear ends up around my ankles. My wife still laughs so hard she gets tears in her eyes remembering the look on my face as she stared out the window of our trailer at her genius husband.
