I got the sarcasm in your post (even though you didn't use sarcasm font). The bad thing is that stationary road debris is almost always the fault of the driver of the vehicle that hits it.
In this case it's clearly obvious that the General Lee was not at fault, however, give thme about 300 more feet of travel distance between the camper and the General Lee and then you gave a stationary object in the road that could be avoided.
For the road debris issues causing more and more accidents just remember guys and gals, maintain a high visual horizon when you drive. Don't stare at the car in front of you, look WAY beyond the car in front of you. Your peripheral vision will catch anything the car in front of you does. This way you can see what the cars or trucks 3-4 ahead are doing. If they are swerving to the left, that is a clue.
Of course most all of the RVers I see towing are driving very safe to begin with.
And for goodness sakes. Buy a diesel!
