Yes, you are correct. What was I thinking? Obviously just a slip of the foot.

Civility tends to go straight out the window when you lay your camper up against another one because you lack the skills or ability to handle it properly. "I just cut her a little close" can be translated to "I don't know what the hell I am doing". I'm assuming he didn't just back it down the way he came because he don't know how to back up. That would have minimized the damage to both units.

We have all seen people with WAY more camper than skill to drive/back it. Why do we give those people a pass? Maybe a little tough-love will prevent an even worse situation that broadsiding a parked class A.

Someone runs into my Parked camper, they automatically are a Moron. Even if we are friends. They passed the qualification test when they ran into my property. Being called a Moron by me may be the least of thier worries anyway, DW is not going to be happy

Here in Rockford they have a Trailer Race at the Rockford Speedway. Popups and small boats, usually. But it's on a figure 8 track, so they are encouraged to destroy the trailers. (Don't tell my DD, but that's where our Coleman ended up after 20 years and mice getting into it.)

I've always wanted to go to that. If I had stupid money, Like "Michael Jordan Money" I'd go buy a brand new 3500 dually and a brand new 5ver just to enter that race. It would be a colossal waste and shame, but the looks on the faces of the people in the stands when you rolled that out onto the track would be priceless!

See...I am a freak. I watched the video and was thinking...what a waste(I know it was a set-up). I know it's supposed to funny and entertaining, but the truth is it costs money. I dunno. I guess I am different than most people. Wasted money is wasted money not to be recovered.

Any hobby is a waste of money for those who do not enjoy that hobby. RVing is an expensive hobby, period
