Fiberglass damage is easy to fix, and it will look as good as new. It is you who matters more. Take good care of your body and mind and be well!

Oooh, you must have "walking pneumonia"? No fever, still up and thinking you're OK, when really you need antibiotics.

Maybe it's a good thing that something caused you to come back home and see your doctor. Get better soon!

Hope the trailer gets fixed soon and your back on your feet with dancing shoes on.

Maybe this worked out for the best. Trailer damage causes you to go home, that leads to a proper diagnosis and treatment. Pneumonia is not something we should just "tough out" no matter how old and tough we get ;-)

Do take care Byron. A bit of glass, grinder, and paint, the Scamp will look good as new.

Well this may make you feel better. I was on my way south last week and as we just got through some heavy traffic area around Harrisburg PA and reached I 81 S . We were feeling relaxed and settled in on a easy drive ahead. BOOM a blowout. Managed to pull to right off road about a foot. Blowout was on the drivers side. Wife stopped me from changing tire, said it was to dangerous, and i was not a kid anymore. We called Good Sam and they were there in an hour or so. Big truck, blinking high caution lights, right kind of jack, that you don`t have to crawl under trailer to set it up, florescent shirt. Was done in 15 minutes. We pulled off next exit and came across a Tractor Supply store and bought the exact same tire as Scamps, all ready mounted. The wheel on the blown tire was bent near the bead, so to avoid any troubles in the future with that wheel, i just chucked it and called myself lucky. Wife said, "does this camping stuff get any better or what" Carl

Carl,
It looks as if you have a fairly new Scamp. Any idea as to what happened? That's always scary- especially on the interstate!

Take good care of yourself. Pneumonia is fixable but still serious. Count the accident as your guardian angel.....

get well soon.

DarrelT I must have hit something on the road, B/C the service guy said there looks like a cut on the side, as he stuck his finger through. There was some road work being done, so maybe i hit a piece of bent metal.I travel about 55-60 mph no matter if the speed limit was 70. My wife did say she heard a clunk sound just before. I did not feel any kind of pull, she said there something wrong, pull over and that is when every thing pulled and shredded apart. We were lucky. Also in that short stay, stranded on a busy truck travel highway, two campers stopped in their cars to see if we needed help. They chatted with me for awhile. Gave me tips on where there was close by campgrounds and told me about the store off the next exit. That info was really helpful. Carl

Thanks for all the encouraging comments. UPDATE.. The other buy's insurance has officially accepted liability. I have a quote in hand to get the trailer fixed and a check for that amount is on the way.

The lungs seem to be clear, but it took a bit out of me. Time to get busy and build my strength back up. It's surprising how fast you loose ground.

Monday we'll get a time we can get the trailer in the shop. They seemed to think they could fix it and have it back to us pretty soon, we'll see. That would be great. I would very much like to spend a couple days close before we head out for a long winter trip.

Good to hear, Byron. Hope you're back on the road soon. I'm curious- what kind of shop are you using for the fiberglass work?
