Probably shouldn't have mentioned it, just the old long-dormant, first responder/firefighter re-surfacing.

Sorry, Wrong. Look at Photo 3/3 . That is way further than your estimate of 15'/20' that you stated as fact.

You cannot know how far the 'squad car' (dating yourself here) is away from the scene/vehicles without a measurement grid.

You were correct on one point though: you shouldn't have mentioned it.

Sorry. Try again.

Cheers!

I do apologize for saying "apparently" and confusing you to interpret I stated it as fact.
I merely wrote my interpretation of the pictures, didn't mean to offend you.

Not offended whatsoever, just correcting what was incorrect.

Cheers!

Worst side to roll on as the door and likely escape windows are on the ground.

Colors and Windows look like my old 1996 Pace Arrow Vision.

That's why they have signs posted "Not recommended for rv's"

I once trashed a nearly-new set of brake rotors on a Jeep Liberty on the BRP. Pretty road, but lots of climbing and braking.

There's not many signs. We camp in Maggie Valley NC and ride motorcycles on the BRP. The tunnels from Cherokee to Ashville NC would make my butt pucker in an RV. Also the overhanging trees might cost you a awning. The only "safe" road to get to the parkway is in Cherokee or 74 and the Ashville exit. 215,276 & 151 would be impossible in a RV. Might use 19 to get on but it's a good size grade to get up to the BRP.

PS: If you are going to drive it in an RV, PLEASE let us by! There's pull offs every 100 yards. We'll gladly pass you. You'll be doing 25 MPH and we'd like to go a little faster

We get stuck behind cars doing 30 MPH. Then they speed up when the road straightens out a bit. If they'd just slow down the straight sections we'd pass but they speed up. They must think they are holding us up and speed up but that doesn't give us an opportunity to pass.

I really wouldn't want to drive my RV into this unlit tunnel:

Talking

we drove our 35' DP and tow vehicle on the BRP this spring - got on in Afton, VA and came off near BuenaVista, VA... very nice ride, very little traffic(a.m.), and foggy(even more fun when you can't see the 'drop offs'!) - 45 miles...

this is the first thing we saw when we exited...

It appears to me as others have said, that he was off the roadway just before overturning. I have theorized that he may have dropped one of the ps duals off the roadway as the pavement drops off to the grass shoulder, and that actually could have pulled the other tire off as well. When he corrected to get back on the roadway, the ps duals now gripped and he just flipped over. By the way, I drive the commuter section of the BRP everyday in Asheville and am aware of the road conditions. For those wanting to drive it in an rv, the section through Asheville is the easy part of the parkway.
