I think the news said it was straight line winds since all the trees were going in the same direction.

I wouldn't be concerned about it myself. I always check the weather forecast for the route I am taking and try to adjust as necessary. If bad weather is forecast when I am in a campground, I bring in the slides, awning, gear, etc and hope for the best. No use worrying about what I can't control.

I'll bet the weight of a motorhome is not much different from a doublewide mobile home and it seems tornados and microbursts seem to chew those up! I don't plan on sheltering in my RV if I know a tornado is coming. Looks like these poor folks got caught by suprise.
