Freak Accident

Set up at Toledo bend (Cypress Bend RV Park) for some much needed rest and relaxation after 4 days in the Guadalupe mountains hiking and tent camping.
Sitting outside with a can of lemonade and Wham!!!
Camper shook, crashing sound, front jacks knocked off blocks. .
Ran around back and found this.

Turns out some lady had parked it up the hill about 150 feet away and left it. Rolled in the main slide out. Bust fiberglass and wooden wall. Knocked slide out of alignment by 2-3". Bent slide rail. Knocked front landing gear off blocks and shifted front end over 6-8". Knocked doors open inside. Draws out. TV mount is loose. Fireplace surround on floor. Microwave turntable out on floor. And more. I neeeeed some rest.

The most important question, is Zoe OK. You're being punished for not getting your reservation in soon enough for Goshen. Glad you weren't hurt, maybe you'll end up with a 2017 model.
