A couple rolls of duct tape and some Eternabond and it'll be just fine!

I'm sure there is a real interesting story behind that damage.
Looks like damage started at the top , tree fell on unit ?
Frame and part rear wall intact .

Yep, a couple of sheets of particle board, some Filon and about 5 rolls or duct tape and it'll be ready to roll. I think he can skip the Eternabond.

The ceiling has nothing holding it up, so it's sagged down into the living area. That back wall has been cut/bent over nearly level from side to side. My bet is they backed into structure of some sort? Canopy over some gas islands at a gas station? Carport with some really HD structure?

The most interesting part is that is a tow truck that's doing the pulling. While I agree that it looks like back up damage, I wonder what happened to the pick up?

I'd guess that coach is on it's way to a shop for a collision estimate, because the owner refuses to pull it in that condition, or is temporarily a little overwhelmed by it all? OR, it's had an estimate written, has been totaled, and is on it's way to the bone yard.
