On our very first trip out, we were following friends. After we arrived at the campground, we followed them along the trail to the campsites. They made a nice easy turn. After we rubbed the slide against a wooden fence, we remembered their trailer was 5 feet shorter than ours. DH proceeded to back up to correct the situation. "Do you want me to get out and spot you?" Of course not, he can handle it all! Thankfully there were no people behind us, but we did back into a tree. The ladder shoved right through the back of the trailer. Thank goodness for insurance! It cost around $3,000 to repair.

We were camping with 3 other families. As soon as they found out what happened, the guys all came over and, as they helped him back into our site, they told him all the stories about the times they - and everyone else in our camping group - crashed their own trailers. They definitely helped him feel a bit better. Looks like we got our initiation out of the way. LOL

Thanks. It's all good now. We were fortunate enough to be with friends. They definitely helped take the sting away!

I had the glass rotating plate come out of the over the stove microwave last weekend. Towed it 10+ times without issue and somehow this time the microwave door opens. The plate shattered. Not a big deal -- a new one was around $40.

It did surprise me. Now we will take that plate out and store it. I wish the microwave door had a lock. The Microwave is a magic Chef.

on one trip thru the wine country my wife was scolding me for "taking the turns a bit sharp and fast" I assured her that i was driving perfectly fine thank you very much. upon reaching our destination and opening the trailer to set camp, it looked like a tornado had gone off inside. That was 7 years ago and I still hear it every time we leave.

Don't feel bad we have been camping for years and it happened to us last trip out. I had made a butterscotch pie while we were out last time and forgot to fasten it down in the refer when we left. It was 100 miles to home and you can only guess how far a pie like that can splat when you open the door to the fridge and not know it was on its side in the door. Took 2 days of cleaning. and I think it is cleaned up.
