RV boo-boos: Trailer smacked from behind on the freeway. Ouch!

“We expected our RV adventure would be once we got there—not on the freeway!” might have been the explanation given on this one. We don’t know, but without a doubt, the RVer in this story, hit from behind on the freeway, probably had a few colorful things to say.

Got to hand it to the RVer. Despite the rather rude hit, they kept the rig on the road. Even remembered to use their turn signal as they apparently headed for the shoulder.

If you can’t get enough of road surprises, here’s a link to more dash-cam videos. (Warning: Not for the faint of heart.)

Russ and Tiña went from childhood tent camping to RVing in the 1980s when the ground got too hard. They've been tutored in the ways of RVing (and RV repair) by a series of rigs, from truck campers, to a fifth-wheel, and several travel trailers. In addition to writing scores of articles on RVing topics, they've also taught college classes for folks new to RVing. They authored the book, RV Boondocking Basics.

“But officer, I did not see the travel trailer”. The little red car made a quick exit !

It appears that the truck/camper was moving into the left lane with no turn signals and didn’t realize there was a car coming up behind. Could have been a terrible accident.

How in the world did you come to that conclusion. i watched it four times to try to see what you were talking about. No way that trailer was moving left.

Person towing the camper did a good job of holding it steady, until getting off the road.
