Glad you are okay, and thanks for sharing.

We just ended a 7k mile trip and the push/pull feeing was on my mind more than I'd like. We've discussed moving up to a 250 for that reason. We just had never known it to be a reality that someone was pulled in enough to contact.

Again, glad you are okay. Stuff can be fixed.

This happens with fifth wheels too. Don't let them fool you that it doesn't happen with fifth wheels. I have a one ton long bed crew and a 30ft Fifthwheel it I can still feel the big trucks sucking me in when they go by.
I used to drive big trucks and you even feel you are being sucked in when another passes you.

Yes glade every one is ok. I've driven a lot of miles when I had my 5er but I had a 1 ton Chevy dully and never had issues with 18 wheelers passing. One of the reasons for having dully more stable on the road. I'd say he must have drifted closer to you than you thought. Later RJD

Wow, thank God everyone is OK. I guess you got some pretty strange looks as you drove to your campsite.

This is not a criticism........it's simply a question.........what does "Playing Russian Roulette" mean? Were you inching closer to him to force him over?

And pics are all sideways (iPhone???), but how did the extended mirror not get torn off?

This would seem to be the ultimate definition of 'sway', though.

DANG! Glad everyone is safe, and the stains should come out when the clothes are washed. We don't normally experience very much sway with our Wind Jammer and Equilizer, but last year we were traveling on I-70 in Kansas and it was windy. Had to watch every single truck that passed me because the 30 MPH wind was 90 degrees to our direction of travel and 18 wheelers made a huge wind disruption. Had not had it that bad before...or since; a very high "pucker factor" day! The TV will be an easier to fix than the TT, oh boy what a mess, my sympathies buddy.

And did the 18 wheeler truck stop?

No I wasn't inching over to force him over, I was just trying to make light of the situation....mirror got bent all the way forward but did not come off

OK gotcha. I wasn't criticizing. I can see the possibility.

Just........this is so bizarre that I am curious about it all. (You ain't helping my considerable pucker factor, I'll tell ya..........LOL)

Yes police came, no one charged yet, it will be reviewed within 10 business days and we'll get a report??? Truck driver went into the grass median almost into oncoming traffic and got stuck in mud so he had to be towed out.
