Rock river cresting 17.20 ft.

I own 2 campers in a seasonal campground. Oregon Illinois. Being on the Rock River, We occasionally catch some water after heavy rain. After last weeks rain event, I thought some would like to see just how wicked mother nature can be. Pic #1 is my 2002 Wildwood. It is already 48 inches off the ground.

Sorry to see that, now if you have to tow it, it will require removing drums and inspecting, cleaning and re-packing wheel brgs and cleaning and checking the brakes.
