Yikes! RV vs Drive through...

I just came across this clip of a 5th wheel hitting a bank drive thru. Yikes! I didn't think a trailer could do this much damage.

Looks like the driver of the truck also sustained some damage. It's hard to believe someone could do that.

Well, we know this. It couldn't have been anyone who frequents this forum. We are all much too intelligent to ever allow anything like this to happen. Right?

It's important to know what the highest point on your RV. There are a few overpasses on less traveled roads that are too low for a lot of vehicles. Watch for signs before going under anything.

Just think of that FW as a 5 ton (or larger) hammer.
