Speaking of "That'll buff out .... right?"

I took this pic at an RV dealership in Sherman, Texas.

Word is - the overpass prevailed.

When I pulled into Fort Wilderness on Sunday, there was a guy with a handsaw cutting the side of his camper to remove his awning. I didn't have the heart to take pictures of even ask him what happened- but my stomach sunk for him.

Same feeling seeing this picture. Everyone should measure their rigs and know exactly how tall they are. For instance, when hitched up- I'm 13' 4 1/2" on level ground.

The front A/C unit is rolled up in that tangled mess just behind the rear awning brace!

So, the lesson learned here is that "Everything's bigger in Texas.... Except overpass heights."

Well, since this dealership is less than 20 miles from the Oklahoma line, I assssume the trailer was wrecked over there and dragged to Texas for repair or trade.

And yet one more way to clean your roof and get rid of those pesky black streaks.

Saw a 5er going down the interstate today with the front 1/3 of the rubber roof flapping in the wind. Driver apparently not too worried as he was rolling along 70+ MPH.
The farther I travel, the lighter the load gets....
