My heart goes out to you all. I wonder if the tires were properly inflated. The tires on my new coach were 30 lbs low when I drove it home. Glad I checked it before the first trip and that they made it home ok.

Thanks, he's very good at checking everything before we go anywhere, he's a long time truck driver/trucking company owner and an Operating Engineer, so he's no stranger to safety measures/pre-tripping . Just happened, could've been anything.

Lisa, Just so glad you guys are OK. After all the insurance junk gets sorted out I hope y'all can find another coach as nice as that one was.

I'm glad all are safe, and I feel your pain for the loss. Good to hear you kept some control of the rig. I too have had the experience of a front tire blow out on two different rigs.

Ha. Ok how's this? You seem resilient, fun loving and adventurous. That trumps level headed.

Thanks Dan! Yeah, she was real nice. Definitely going to be looking for a new one once the insurance is settled. Can't believe it happened, seems so unreal.

Holy cow! Two?!?! I almost died from fear! There was nothing left of the door, could see the road and all the debris flying by, my seat started twisting. Whole passenger side from the tops of the basement doors ,gone... part of floor behind my seat was gone also,I could see the road... Two blow outs???? I'd definitely have a heart attack!
