Comprehensive claim on the insurance minus the deductible.

Measure twice and back in once. Always use a spotter or two. I wish all camp sites were pull through.

The darn problem with tree branches is most look down and back as they back into a site. My rig is 12ft. tall and I figure the branch that got hold of the awnings was 11'11". If it was on driver side I might of caught it looking out the window, but my luck the cg is one way with the nicer sites curbside. Oh yeah, I did get out of the rig and walk the site to get a "picture visual" of where I wanted to go and that is what I keep replaying in my mind was how I could of been off my mark. Quite often when DW and I are doing the local-cations I am arriving at the campground before her so I am left to backing in and setting up the site before she arrives coming from work. I will even have her wine chilled and glass ready with snacks out upon her arrival.

It's been 6 years now of flat tires, bent axles, bent frame resulting in a "Total" insurance claim. Second TT, no flats, but always some little thing going wrong. But I wouldn't trade it for a "jet set" hotel room! My problem solving skills have been challenged as well as my patience. But never, ever, do I regret the people I've met! RV'ers are the best! They're always there with help and advice. I've never walked outside our TT at night with any fear in any RV park I've been in. If you really want to see this great country of ours, suck it up and remember....your Conestoga has a motor!

This old house (5th wheel)

My wife and I bought our Wildcat 3 years ago and have used it for traveling, fishing and camping with grandkids. However, I'm so tired of fixing this and fixing that. Before every outing and all thoughout our trips things are in constant need of either repair or upgrade. I sometimes feel as though the only thing that works on this fifth wheeler is me.
