Without knowing the "Actual" weight of those, kinda hard to criticize what hitch they may be using. The combined weight might be less than most of our TT's.

That almost happened to us two days ago here in Richmond, Indiana. We are camped at the KOA here visiting the sister in law. Wife and son were in the pool, I was setting up the grill to cook dinner. Rain rolled in fast! I extended the awning to give me time to get stuff put away. As I was walking into the camper to pull in the awning the wind hit hard and the awning was bouncing hard up and down. I got it rolled in and now have two slightly bent support arms. Live and learn...

We were camped with awning, poles and claws(I will admit I am paranoid) and a storm was coming in. DW and I held poles while DS pushed the switch. Kinda scary.

We are usually rather anal about using the awning. It came a hard and fast down pour so I ran the awning out just to give me a few minutes to put stuff away. Then the wind hit as I walked into the camper to bring the awning in. It wasn't a pretty situation, but we learned a lesson, didn't die and the awning is still attached and opens and closes. Not a full on win, but certainly a push. And we continue to camp.

Been there, done that.

Had an occasion or two that we missed the window of opportunity and decide to just ride it out. Also sucked.

Might have a photo somewhere, but a camper about 500' from our spot went up in flames. Was at the KOA by St. Louis, MO about 6 years ago. Hope to never see that again. No one was hurt, and the relief valves on the propane tanks worked as designed.

I have a question for the people that have their trailers drop after leveling and putting out slides. Are you not putting your stabilizers out after leveling and before putting out slides?

Saw a popup go up in flames about 20 years ago. It was smoldering and probably could've put out easily, but owner got excited and cranked up the roof as fast as he could. Soon as all the air rushed in.....the camper was toast. The valve on propane worked perfectly, but to add insult to injury...the valve pointed right at the front of the trailer. Acted like a blow torch when it let loose and burned a hole right thru the front of trailer.

Is the "cute driver" the property of a lonely guy, camping alone?

Did see one gentleman on site - with a pup - so the driver may have been? Trek towing that jeep?

So, this happened last night at Red Rock state park in Iowa.

Not me. The guy was getting items out of his truck and had ducked just as the tree came down on top of the truck (that's why the drivers door is in good shape (it was open).

He got a couple of scrapes and scratches. Nothing too serious. Click image for larger version
