Wild Ride Inside Storm-Tossed Trailer

Liz posted this over on the EscapeForum. I'll share with y'all. I found a different website with better photos: Camper's trailer went airborne with him inside : Lincoln, NE Journal Star

In the grand scheme of things, he was a lucky, lucky man.

Yikes! That's one lucky man in an unlucky situation. I'm frankly surprised that there wasn't more damage to the trailer let alone to the man. The trailer held up amazingly well. Now I'm thinking of all the things in my trailer that could be airborne projectiles. Good thing it's mostly pillows, stuffed animals and other soft stuff. Maybe it's a good idea to keep our cabinet latches locked even when we are not on the road! heh, heh.

One lucky dude. They say in a car accident it is sometimes not the accident but the unsecured things and unseat belted persons flying around that can do more damage.

One photo shows a tandem axle trailer, upside down. The wheels are white, so it looks like it was a travel trailer. But it's hard to tell otherwise... it looks like a flatbed, because there are no sides or roof or anything!

The Scamp did pretty well, considering. A bit cracked on the rear, but it's mostly intact.

I was going to post this, but Donna beat me to it............LOL

Still kinda makes one glad to have a FG instead of a sticky? Decades ago,
I saw a old winnebego MH turn over in the median of a freeway.
Wasn't much left of it after turning over. Kinda looked like it exploded.
