Look at the rear tires on the truck. That video starts at impact.

herk--- I don't see what you are saying. are you saying its real or fake? I've watched it over and over again. maybe my eyes are missing it but I also did see the drivers door crushed. wondering about how the driver made out?

There are longer videos about the hit, hopefully the driver wasn't hurt

Oh it is real enough! The impact with the camper drove the pin box downward and near flattened the rear tires! Talk about payload overload!

I took a real close look at that A&W sign. Shrimp and Fries for $3.99? If those are popcorn shrimp I am all in! Love those things with lotsa cocktail sauce.

On a commiserating note I nearly completely ripped off my popup door because I was in a hurry and thought "that will never happen" and well it did. It is what it is. When your roof is put back together it'll be like it never happened and you'll have the experience of knowing. My door never got replaced because it was a unique size that was only made for one year. I always had the reminder of being in a hurry everytime I had to muscle that door closed.

Had you overloaded the trailer you would have cleared the sign.
Sorry that's not funny.
We all make mistakes. (I won't admit to wrecking my tailgate)

Wow, I feel for you.

Hope all is well after the fix and summer brings much better times. Still sad though.

What a bummer. The bright side is that it only took the roof. I know, it's still a PIA. Thanks for posting - it's a good reminder for all of us.
