Events/pictures such as these are so traumatic, they cause ripples in all of us RVers. I, too, am thankful you are OK.

I'm very glad you're ok. Every time I get behind the wheel of my RV or motorcycle I think about how quickly things like this can happen. Thanks for sharing and reminding us all that it's a dangerous world out there. Again, I'm very glad you're ok.

OH WOW!! Bet you had to change your undies.... I would have! Glad all are safe and not hurt. RV's and trucks are just stuff... this is why we have insurance.

So glad everyone is ok. This is every RVers nightmare. On the plus side, this means you get to go truck and trailer shopping.

Yes, very glad that you are able to tell us the story yourself. We have all seen situations that were bad. Now that your Sabre has passed the durability test...

Oh man, this hurts to read and hits close to home! Please do let me know what B&W say about the hitch. I know the coupler isn't held on by much, but it still doesn't seem right that it would come off. How early did it come off in the wrecking process?

Not sure when in the process, but think it was pretty late, right before stopping. That was due to the large rocks and a hill back out of the ditch. I think you can see in the pic that the pins bent, maybe? Gotta zoom in

Yeah, I see the pins are bent. Did your brake away cable get pulled/activated?

Nope, because it was attached to the head that broke off. But brakes wouldn't have helped much sideways. I was thinking through that though and how to better hook the cable maybe.
