Injured Fifth Wheel - Friday - April 29, 2011

Nancy here:  With all the severe weather that is going on in the country, I thought I would post a couple of pictures of our neighbors new Fifth Wheel. 

Can you see the tree branch by the window??

There it is a little closer...and it was attached to the Pine Tree!!

They were camping outside Raleigh, when the damaging tornados went through that area. They had gone to a safe building while the storm went through.  When they returned, a pine tree had impaled the bedroom wall.  The entrance was block and they needed a chain saw to remove the tree so they could get into the fifth wheel.  Fortunately, no one was hurt at the campground and the damage to the Fifth Wheel can be fixed!!

However, this is just a reminder to pay attention to the weather and take appropriate action.  RV's are no place to hang out in during severe weather! 


  1. Wow! We've been watching all the weather news from down south. I think we were very lucky at the rally, and I've seen that no one in our blog circle has had any issues.

  2. Wow! That's a perfect example of why to go to a safe place! So lucky no one was hurt.

  3. You got that right! I hope their insurance works with them and they can find a good repair place. That can be a headache. I really mean it when I say safe travels.

  4. We have been SO lucky dodging 3 tornados in 3 weeks. Sorry to hear about your neighbors. At least they aren't full timers who would have to hang out in a hotel while it is being repaired. YIKES......just the thought.


  5. I am really glad that I found your site.. Thanks so much for the helpful information..
