Yes, glad everyone are ok! Those front tire blow outs are just like a bomb exploding!

Wow. I knew from your description it did not sound good but seeing the photos really is shocking. I think I see an opportunity here for you to become a spokesperson for Safety T Plus or one of the other units on the market. As your agent (since I thought of it first) we should discuss this.

I'd like to buy you and your husband a drink... and the 25 guys who built and installed that guardrail.

My sincerest wishes for smoother sailing from here on out.

Heal fast. Heal well.

I didn't see a photo of the right front tire assuming that was the one that started this mess.

Must be there isn't much left of it when looking at the condition of the coach in that area.

Thanks for sharing.

They didn't have a Safe T Plus installed on the coach.

X2 on the guardrail. If one was not there I wouldn't think the outcome would be so good.

I would like to know the brand of tire. Not that they were all the same but looking at the two pics of the rear tire I can't make out any lettering on the sidewall.

It was still on the wheel about 500 yards behind the coach in the "debris field",along with part of the axle & the brake.

We actually started going down the embankment, husband brought it back up on the road & perfectly placed an inch from the remaining guard rail.
