The worst RV crashes and disasters we’ve ever seen!

15

Yikes! These are by far some of the worst RV crashes and disasters we’ve ever seen. You can’t help but cringe and cry out while watching this.

The clip that starts at 3 minutes and 20 seconds looks especially awful – the RV hits one pole and completely falls apart! Says something about craftsmanship, doesn’t it? And the clip that starts at 5:05 – Wow! The RV drove away after sending a pickup truck tumbling! We don’t know what happened, but we sure hope that RV was caught.

Ever wonder why you need to travel with your propane tanks OFF? Watch these vids.

A couple years ago going across Indiana on the interstate, I’d spent hours of white knuckled driving in a severe cross winds (hands cramped). In the opposite lane a pickup truck pulling a travel trailer came out from under an overpass and the wind, or lack of, at that point, just grabbed the trailer and laid it on it’s side, staying hitched, and ended up with the truck standing on it’s nose. People shaken up but no one hurt. They backed up the west bound lanes for a good mile or better.

Reading all the comments below, all good ones.
NHTSA estimates there are between 75,000 to 80,000 NON-FATAL RV Accidents every year.
Suprisingly, allot of that number are Motorhomes or Motorized style RV’s.
The other factor that causes this many accidents is #1: Inexperience and #2: AGE of the drivers.

Safety should never be compromised!

Amazing how those ball hitches stay connected. Just wondering if they had trailer brakes or controllers. Slow down the trailer to take the sway out before vehicle brakes. Agree, Hensley arrow or similar hitch but people don’t want to spend any money.

One thing I did notice in some of the “bumper pull” crashes, was that the tow vehicles stop lights came on shortly before the worst of the sway happened. I was taught that you should never step on the brakes, this causes the trailer to be faster than the tow vehicle and it jackknifes .

Having been pulling well over 40 years I have a few rules ~~ never tow anything over 3500# with less than an F250, never pull but the lightest popup with an SUV, never pull anything single axel over 1000#, never own a TT again (5ers for many years), over 10,000# require an F350, over 15,000 use a dually. Never over 65 mph pulling anything. There are more but I’m all for safety.

Many of these crashes seem to involve what I would consider undersized tow vehicles with short wheelbases. Just sayin’.

Just reinforces why I hold the maximum speed at 65 miles an hour and invested in a Hensley arrow hitch

It seems most of these crashes occurred outside the US. Most due to excessive speed. Almost all were bumper pulls.
One looks like driver rage after he tried to merge onto a highway. He was at fault and yet tried to damage the vehicle that didn’t move over for him.

Gotta ask yourself, what the hell were some of those people thinking.
