...and a good reason not to blindly follow the GPS.

If you see a sign that says no trucks, that is your sign.

Wonder if there is a "part 2" for whatever lies further down the road!

That's going to cost a few thousand in damages. I can't believe that he drove away with the awning rails sticking out. It looks like he didn't even try to swing out any to allow the 5er to follow on the road.

That looks like it was in Needles Highway in South Dakota. Definitely not a place to pull a camper.

Given what was said initially in the video by the guy in the car, it sounded like the damage occurred in the tunnel, and he probably brought the rig to a panic stop, not really thinking about the upcoming curve. Could also been a vehicle coming from the opposite direction preventing him from swinging wide.

A few years ago I was on the road to Sedona and the sign saying no RVs was past the point of no return... When I saw the sign there was no place to turn around..
