Laws on that vary by state. See Woodalls Campground Directory Rules of the Road section for more information.

Back in the early 80's me and my business partner bought two of the Honda 3 wheelers. We were going to ''ride'' on Sunday afternoon. We headed down a country road for about two miles to hit the ''big woods'' and lots of fun. We rounded a curve and saw what looked like a bundle of laundry laying in the right lane toward the outside line. When we came along side this ''bundle of laundry'' turned out to be a dead woman that had fallen or been pushed out of a C class motor home probably no more than 2 minutes earlier. (not pretty) We stopped traffic and some guy called 911. We covered her with a large beach towel the guy had in his car. In about five minutes we were surrounded by Blue Flashing Lights and ''Hats'' with pin and pads. After some investigation they actually found the ''C'' class that she either fell out of or was pushed out of. It seems that the rear tandems had ran over her according to the investigation.

Word to the wise. In our coach when we are moving our ''walk door'' has two locks on it and when the steps come in, BOTH LOCKS ARE LOCKED.... If Willa falls out it will be out a window or a roof vent.......

Lets all pray for our troops that they will come home safe and real soon cause we miss them a whole bunch...............

One more note..... If you got someone in service to this great nation I want you to tell that person that Seajay the sailor man says THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE............

Nuff said for now ........

Oh by the way, it is legal to ride in any trailer that has a fifth wheel coupling device.... I did say "legal" not smart !
I am surprised at the choice of words you used in reference to Alabama.
If this accident had happened in your state ( MI ) do you think you would have used the same choice of words in reference to MI ?
They do have one heck of a football team, don't you think.

The accident DID happen in my state (Florida) ! And If I lived in Michigan, I would have had the same response ......

YES they do, Michigan State University (MSU). Ranked 8 or 9 this week. Way ahead of the University of Michigan (U of M).

This article is a reminder that I will start locking my door when traveling.
