    I don't think that will be going back on the road. There could have been numerous reasons for the cause, you can only hope that the occupants got out safely.

    What a bloody awful thing to say about a fellow MH owner. You have lost my respect you and your family and ANY of your future posts. I hope that you never have a problem like that of which that poor MH owner had, as if you do your comment will come back and bit you soooo hard in the ass.

    Good luck for the future.

    Good lord was it only me!


    Who thought this post mean't the "rubber neckers" who like to have a good look as they drive past. By either braking in the opposite overtaking lane or almost stopping as they pass the accident. ::bigsmile:::bigsmile:

    well that how I read it but others see it differently. A little more thought on Duanes part to explain what he meant would have made it easier for some people to understand.

    ..... which all goes to show that what people think is not necessarily translated into writing. It is something that we all do. I could not believe that someone would be so harsh and unsympathetic and interpreted it as rubberneckers plus the Police now closing roads for sometimes unfathomable reasons (to the casual observer) causing long delays. An accident site now has to be regarded as a potential crime scene and requires a thorough investigation, which we would expect if it was one of our loved ones in the accident itself. It is very frustrating, though.

    Haven't found out if it is anyone on here or any other forum yet, but hope they have a speedy recovery

    Read the thread title without the aid of the optical assisters (glasses) and wondered where the motorhome was to turn over onto a poor animal.

    Put my glasses on and realised it wasn't an ASS. :Doh:

    Frightening, that's been the second mh accident report recently.
    As long as the occupants were ok, that's the main thing:Sad:
