Bad day for RVer's today

On my way back from Indiana to Illinois today on the Highway
Seen 1 rv with his antenna flopping around on his roof hanging only by the wire.
Waved and pointed to the roof but didn't pull over
Brand new rv being transported 2 blow out's
Another older rv with a blow out
And another rv about to lose his cargo rack as I seen it was only zip tide
Scary out there

Monday night last week we saw a older rig on the side of the road just starting to burn. They were out in the middle of nowhere and there were several people there helping but it was pretty clear it was going to go!

Welcome to iRV2.

My worst scare was driving highway 97 here in BC . Caught up to a Class C , and noticed he had a 100 lbs. ( 25 gal ) propane cylinder , standing on the rear bumper tied to the ladder with a 1/4" piece of rope . I backed WAY off and another vehicle passed me , that vehicle caught up to the Class C , and in a few moments backed, WAY off , too. Luckily the Class C turned off in about 15 miles .

this March.. returning home from South Carolina.

a towable Ultra-Lite with a u-bolt receiver on trailer bumper.. and a cargo rack... generator, propane tank, 2 coolers. 3 bicycles.

Rack was moving up and down like 6 inches. I can just see the bumper falling off in 20 miles ... maybe.. but LOOKED BAD.
