Oops I swiped a tree and it broke my topper

So on my way out of the campground I swiped a tree and ripped off the end of the slide topper. Had to cut off the topper for we had a 3 hour drive home. Click image for larger version

Did that a few years ago pulling into a spot and not "watching out for that tree" (George of the Jungle). Took off one arm and the awning. It did enough damage for an insurance claim as there was paint damage.
Total bummer....but it is just part of the memories of the wonders of RVing.

Hope it doesn't cost too much to fix it. Happy Trails.

Last December we were backing into my sister-in-laws driveway, I was watching my wife's directions in the rear view monitor not paying attention to the tree on my passenger side thinking she was watching. Next thing you know I hear a large bump on the side and see the tree squarely in the entry door window. Pull forward, get out expecting the worse, the only damage was to the entry step, a slight bend in the step. No damage to side of RV, paint, or awning above door. WE were extremely lucky.
