RV boo-boos: Fifth wheel through the drive-through? (Video)

By Russ and Tiña De Maris
To paraphrase an old mentor, “Some of the brightest people are RVers—but on the other hand….” Yes, sometimes you just have to scratch your head. We can see a motorhomer hitting an unexpected patch of black ice. Yes, sometimes you really can develop an LP leak at the wrong time. But taking the fifth wheel through the fast-food joint’s drive-through? Get real!

This “incident” (we can’t call it an accident, can we?) reportedly took place in Yuma, Arizona. Somebody’s stomach must have gotten ahead of his common sense. Better you should walk-through the drive-through in this case. We’ve run into locals who have an already low opinion of snowbirds—this could be one reason. If a still image isn’t enough, watch the video for yourself!

This fella is a friend of mine and was full timing in the LTVA. 80 yrs young and has since put up his driving and living near his daughters. When dementia strikes we should all be concerned. Please be compassionate in your messages. And thank God you haven’t slipped to that position. Safe driving.

It is too bad he didn’t decide to hang up the keys before he did this. Tough lesson to learn. Luckily, no one was hurt in this situation (other than the building and the 5th Wheel). My dad had dementia and it was all but impossible to convince him he couldn’t drive safely anymore.

Based on the fact that the driver tries to keep going, I’ve always suspected the rig was stolen.

Some idiot built a Dairy Queen where RVs have to turn. And yes I agree with previous poster this video is old.

He should immediately be sterilized as his gene pool sprang a leak years ago, no way should people like this be allowed to reproduce.
