    Pretty distinctive van when you've seen one or two. Very good for their day and still some going strong.

    Glad she is okay. Hope she gets behind the wheel again soon, before she loses her nerve.

    Hope the insurance company do their job.

    The cab looks pretty much structurally intact - another reminder to make sure all loose stuff is put away / strapped down before moving off :)

    I'm glad there were no serious injuries but it shows how badly some MHs (most?) behave in a crash in the sense of bits inside coming loose. The industry is becoming aware of this slowly but in an older vehicle you have every chance of being hit in the back of the head by a 'fridge or sink unit in the event of a head-on impact.

    I doubt whether most recent motorhomes would fare much better.

    I agree, but they should, although crash testing would be prohibitively expensive and the wattle and daub construction of some vehicles suggests they might never comply with any sort of standard which could be introduced.

    Just drive carefully!

    Just glad the driver is ok, and even if she has insurance it's still a nasty shock and horrible thing to see your pride and joy in pieces. Poor lady.

    Gosh. I hope there weren't any passengers in the back. It just shows how flimsy motorhomes are.
