Bridge Over Troubled Waters

How would you like to face this bridge while towing a camper. I would like to say I was not towing a camper but this came to mined when I saw this eye opening event as I came around the corner.

Now this pic is when I was headed back, but as you look to the other side the road comes down the hill and turns there are signs that say "ONE LANE BRIDGE" this is the eye opener, not exspecting this.

Some may know where this is, the location is Front Royal VA, the Rt is 624 MorganFord RD..... Once I was on the bridge I kept on moving, my imagination was running away from me, I could see the bridge falling down behind me as I was driving and I open my windows just incase I ended up in the water.

Wade, that is scary, but I guess it could be done, as long as the trailer wheels fit between the rails, and the maximum bridge weight is not exceeded. I wouldn't want to, but I would in a pinch if that was the only way to get to my designation.

I like the way your GPS is showing a body of water up ahead.

You found a camper yet ??

The GPS is also showing the vehicle wider than the bridge. Ruht-Row!

I wouldn't cross that bridge with or without a trailer. Looks way too scary for me! Although I would consider walking across it. DH could drive across it and I'd meet him on the other side.

I would be more inclined to call your thread "Troubled Bridge over Waters"
Certainly not for the faint of heart.

Chap, the GPS is a Garmin 750 and I changed the vehicle icon to a 4x4 truck and if you noticed the truck has over sized tires on it, thats why it looks bigger then the road. We just got a new Garmin GPS one not long ago but haven't tried it yet.

As far as a camper go's we have not bought one yet but we do have a few in mined. Now we are waiting for the RV show that is coming up in October in Hershey PA.
