Now I know why they always tell me to keep the rubber side down.

The ol' bus held together pretty well. A tornado on the other hand...*shudder to think about it*

Search for all my rants on weather radios.

Just think if this was an Ultra lite, would it have held up the same way ????

With the laminated wall construction FR uses their ultra-light lines I suspect the trailer would have held up just as well, maybe better. But being lighter may have been moved further!

It is my understanding that aluminum frame/laminated wall RVs hold together some what better in storms or accidents. Don't matter much though, in either case the trailer is ruined and you'd be hurt bad if you were in the thing.

I guess the ultra-light might be easier to clean up and haul off...
