Hello all. Been a Class C owner since 2005.
Done a little traveling on the East coast and Fl.
I know what it is like to live in a little rv for four months of the year.
Used to look like the Clampets rolling down the road.
Picture the tiny class c towing a boat, motorcycle on the rear bump out
and a couple of bicycles strapped to the front end.
Oh and do not forget a couple of yellow labs.
Well hello all from Cape Cod

Thanks All
Sorry to say but I am searching for my next Class C.
The night before Easter coming back from Fl on 95 CT just out of NY
a motorist decided he liked my lane more than I did.
Good by to my Bessy a 1994 Damon Hornet 2002 model.
First time in 13 years I was not towing a boat behind me.
We are fine, MH took the brunt off it, right on the nose and did not
roll or any one else hitting us ??? WOW just like Nascar, car into
outside barrier ,sparks a flying and you know its coming off that wall.
We were traveling in the center lane, lucky there was no one to the right of
us. It was just the car and me on the side of the highway when the screeching stopped. A witness pulled off the road in front of us hopped out.
Donned a florescent vest grabbed out a fire extinguisher and first aid kit.
Informed us that he had called the police and asked if we were ok.
Then he went to check the other car witch had stopped first behind us on the exit ramp.
I can tell you now why cabinet doors should have a positive locking mechanism. There was not a cabinet door or drawer that did not open and empty its contents onto the floor. Police and fire personel were on top of things and the tow company was kind enough to let us stay in the dead MH for the night as we had our four Labrador retrievers with us.
Four hours from home and no transport on Easter morning, U-Haul was open and had a 10' box truck to rent for the last four hours of the trip.
So far my insurance has been great.
So Safe Travels to all!
BuzzWolfAR I am in Harwich next door on Cape Cod.

Found dash cam while emptying the MH the day afteraccident

Thanks all for the warm welcome
