Sorry to hear it's gone but the main thing ( and most important) is that you're all safe.

You can replace the material things

But you literally just needed to hook up, disconnect and run with the camper. And you were actually there.

What gives?

So why couldn't you take ten minutes to disconnect electric, sewer and water hookups, hitch to your truck and drive off?

Sorry

It's good to hear that you won't be attending any funerals or sitting bedside in a hospital praying. Sometimes the blessings are hidden behind the tragedies.

I took the hitch out when we parked it, It's at my uncle's and I have to use the tractor to get and pick it up. No time for all that

I actually thought that would be the reason.

Oh well too bad- insurance?


FWIW I store my fifth wheel hitch hanging from the trailer kingpin. Easy enough to drive the truck underneath and lower the hitch down. Minimal effort taking the hitch out of my truck, and it's always there if I need it.

Ten minutes? When they tell you to GTFO, you GTFO. Sometimes you donít even have two minute.

First time up there since that fateful day. I didn't want to go but my wife insisted & needed closure, It was an emotional day. The entire road from the lake and up is unrecognizable. Good news, the tractor & well survived the camper not so much

We registered with FEMA, Red Cross bunch of other stuff so we might be able to rebuild. It will be many years before the trees and vegetation grow back

So it's not a total loss then. Yeah , shit happens but you all made it out. Pick out another camper and start "version 2" of camp. Recall the things you wanted to alter and do that now.

The low vegetation will be back shortly so it will green up again.

Best of luck
Jeff

We've got 10+ years to retirement. For now we've been using it for a vacation/bug out spot. The plans for building it out were still in it's infancy.
