We bought our 28 BHS last year. Brand new from the dealer just before Memorial Day. I work in a repair shop and you would expect me to be better prepared. Ourfirstvoyage out I got a flat on the truck. I talked about putting new tread on the expedition, but we weren't going far. Our vacation trip, we were off to Disney. Going to leave around 3 AM. Thought if I pulled out of the driveway it would be less annoying to the neighbors as everyone is pretty close here. On the way out, I caught the fence with the back corner Of my gorgeous new camper..not the way i wanted to start a vacation. Now I drive tow trucks, and tractor trailer. I pride myself on being able to put this thing anywhere we want to go. So when I came home from our first weekend of camping this year and was arrogantly backing in the drive way listening to the radio like I was 17, the stabilizer jack cought a brick of my brand new retaining wall and took out about 6 feet of it, think I learned enough lessons to last awhile. This is my 3rd camper and never hit the. Others, guess I needed to be be put in my place.

Drove 1200 miles to Florida one week with no mishaps. Checked in at Fort Wilderness and while we were leaving the check in station I hit an orange barrel. Very minor scrapes.

Well, I went over a speed bump leaving the campground......I heard a dreaded bang......stopped and checked for damage and couldn't find any damage.....I was mystified until I got home......turns out, I smacked the WDH on the speed bump from a low tire on the right rear of my truck. It left a 6" scratch on both spring bars. No damage to the TT thank God
