What a tragedy for the family. A 17 year old driving a motorhome? Not a great idea.
Sure is a tragedy to lose that many family members but yes I have to agree letting a youngster drive a big coach towing a huge trailer certainly was not the best decision.
If anything lets hope that this post will open the eyes and help prevent a parent that thinks his child, who has NO experience under his belt as to how to correct a trailer sway situation and/or how to avoid an accident, from ever being behind the wheel of an RV towing.

DW and I were just discussing this and wondering about 18 people in the MH. If they were traveling just a bit over the legal speed limit? Where do you sit that many people? Just a bunch of ???'s.
Tis another fine day to serve in and for the glory of the Corps. Every day is a holiday and every meal a feast.

An absolute tragedy that was probably preventable. Hopefully someone will post the follow up to what happened and the circumstances that had 18 people in a motorhome pulling a huge trailer with some detailed info on the vehicle.
