Here's to hoping they have a full recovery.
I just ordered a Safe T Plus yesterday in an effort to help mitigate this sort of event.

8 yrs old Michelins.....that's the reason I just put 6 new ones (Michelins) on my 2006 (chassis) Georgetown last week....only 7,000 miles on the old ones with some sidewall checking. Praying for a full and speedy recovery.

Now that is one scary looking result of tire failure! I am so glad they will recover, and hope they can get back on that horse. Although I'm not sure I could get back in a MH.

OM GOSH RODNEY! I just now saw this, I am SO SO sorry about what happened.

Thank God they are both alive and recovering. That could very well have been the end.

Bless you all and your family for a continued and sustained quick recovery.

Again, so sorry to see/hear this.

I too wish them a full and speedy recovery.
It is scary to see how much damage there is and the lack of protection in these coaches.

That is another reason I keep my speed close to 60, even where the limit is 70 or more. The Michelin blowout safety video should be required viewing.
I hope both of them are healing well, and are able to continue RVing in the future.
