This is a pic of what happened to my Sister-In-Law's car last night:



Here is the damage to the RV:



as you can see, no damage to the RV! SIL needs a new windshield and some buffing compound. no metal damage that i know of.

the karma is that my SIL rammed her car into the rear bumper of the RV several months ago and caused me to replace the bumper.

cosmic payback? who knows. the RV sits under the same trees...


1999 Winnebago Minnie, 29', Triton V10, mostly stock. So far...

not hurt, but she was sitting outside and got to watch the whole thing happen. the branch got hung up in the tree long enough for her to think about moving her car, but not long enough for her to get the keys. bad idea anyway, coulda killed her from that height.

Had that happen to our class C a few years ago, but we weren't so lucky.
Bigger tree and over $6800 in damages.

Feel yourself very lucky my friend lol.

If she damaged your RV bumper and DIDN'T pay for the new one, then it was karma.

If she did pay for the bumper, then it was just an accident.

At least no one got hurt. Those suddenly dropping branches can do a lot of damage. Years ago, I heard a big crash, and ran outside. I saw the neighbor's Cadillac with the roof completely caved in from a foot-in-diameter branch that fell about 40 feet. I was momentarily confused as I stood there looking up into the clear blue sky expecting high winds, thunderstorm cloud, tornado, whatever, but it was breathless calm when the branch dropped. Widow makers for sure.

no, she didnt pay for the bumper. i was going to replace it with a 5" pvc fence post cover eventually, so i just went and did it. no big deal. i just thought it was amusing that she was parked so close to the rv and her car got nailed and the rv was just barely brushed. and yes, dead calm, clear blue sky.
