    Ouch !

    How can you enjoy your weekend camping when something like that happens on the way to the campground?

    as long as everything works and nothing leaks, worry when you get home!

    Brian has it right. I've suffered a spate of equipment failures on my current trip but I didn't let them spoil my fun. I just carried on and trusted that I'd figure something out.

    Water lines were busted. Could see them sticking out. Just have to dry camp and at least it is under the awning

    I guess you just be thankful no one was hurt. Have a good time camping and hope for no blowing rain.

    That's a shame. DH may have a hard time the rest of the trip. I would try to make the most of it!

    Yes, my DH would have a lot harder time enjoying the trip after something like that but I would try to make the best of it and make do.
    But still, UGH. Feel for them.

    Ouch is right. But I would have to say I would get some plastic and duct tape cover the hole once you get to camp and relax. Then get home and deal with fixing it or insurance....I don't know which would be worse?

    John, where did ya snap that picture? Looks like a classic case of not knowing how to swing a corner? Awning tube appears to have started being crushed until camper moved the pesky obstruction out of the way. Can you say the word "totaled"? Sure, I knew you could [LOL]

    Assuming you took that here in western PA, it will probably end up here as a salvage.

    Looks like he took out the whole kitchen wall, stopped just short of the water heater.

    Add chicken wire to your emergency tool kit list for when this happens. Don't want the raccoons to move in with you in the middle of the night.
