That was funny.....and a solid idea!

I've walked campgrounds numerous times thinking what has already been posted. I've looked at FW's and those high fire escape windows, and ALL trailers, and the elderly or "wide" people who were with them.

Good idea to think and plan about a "what If" situation!

And you expect us to believe that? Sounds like something FT Turbs would say.

Seriously, You are going to be pretty seriously fricked up trying to get out that window at 8 ft above the ground. If you are serious about this you need to deploy a ladder od some sort to help you down...

Maybe a boat ladder with 5 steps or something like that.. I will now proceed to be creative and invent something, which I will advertise on RVtravel and make a million bucks. then retire and buy a DP.

Never got a "Thanks, kiss my ---" or anything either time, but will continue to help if needed. Would think they would at least pay for re-charging the extinguisher.
I feel your pain, just a little common courtesy is all that's needed. Thank you goes a long way. to you for getting involved.

Thanks for all the comments. Good stuff. Since the high window seems to be the big thing, I may just try it, and video it when I get home. It's high, but not that high. Of course I'll try it in slower motion instead of the oh crap gotta go speed.

Get yourself a couple of ABC fire extinguishers for both sides of the bed too.
