Back on Board!

It has been several years, but the planets have finally aligned!!

I joined the forum in 2010, right after I purchased my 2011 Salem Cruiselite 17EXL. In late 2012 an idiot zig zagging down a seven percent grade on the freeway lost control and clipped it. It jack knifed into my truck and then disintegrated. Fortunately, none of us got hurt! Me, my eight year old daughter, unborn son, and eight month pregnant wife all walked away shaken up, but unharmed.
Flash forward to tomorrow when I go and pick up my 2015 Flagstaff Shamrock 233S!! It took a while to get back here, but we are back on board

Welcome back to the forum and camping! We enjoyed our Shamrock 21SS for many years and think you will too!

Happy Camping!

Your family was very lucky. How did the reckless driver come out?

I could be wrong but I think I recognize that bright yellow paint from a RV inside showroom in Ontario or maybe their sister lot in Pomona.

The reckless driver was taken to the hospital in the same ambulance as my wife. they took her in for observation since she was pregnant.
After he clipped me he lost control and took out a couple more vehicles. My wife said he was complaining of back pain. We never saw him after that!

You are correct. That yellow paint is from the Ontario location.

I'm surprised that you guys weren't seriously injured. Thank goodness you were able to walk away.
