    Oh dear, everyones worst nightmare.
    I m no traffic accident incident person or anything , but the MH does look ancient. Just cos the pictures of a before MH of the same year look very nice , the one in the accident could have been a real shed.
    Some of the pictures at the end of the slide show what looks like very rusty metal and rotten wood work.
    Surly that would weaken any vehicle in an accident.
    Though if the newest , with bestest safety features MH was hit head on with an artic lorry they wouldn't stand a chance.
    What did this MH on the photos hit ?
    A brick wall , artic lorry or was it just a crash with a car?
    I would have thought all newer models have to follow strict safety rules when building nowadays ??

    The slide show says it had a brush with some trees and rolled over.

    If that was the case surely the sides would be far more damaged when you compare to the front.

    Without knowing the speeds and other vehicles involved this doesnt really show anything except a wrecked RV. If it hit a rabbit at 20 mph and suffered this amount of damage then id be worried but what if it was belting along the motorway at 70mph and hit a lorry coming the opposite direction also doing 70mph. A closing speed of 140mph a 10 ton RV and a 30 ton lorry id say the RV is in good shape if thats the case.

    Its also quite old and obviously a bit rotten as well which doesnt help:Doh:

    This was kicking about a couple of years ago and much the same, without the facts who knows, and lets face it the tone of the coments smacks of someone lining up a compensation claim.
