22FB isn't new anymore!

Well, we got our first scratch on the new 22fbTT. While backing her up into the barn I kinda scrapped it against the inside wall on driver's side rear. She aint new anymore! Just a scratch, no major damage thank goodness. So, let's hear your stories. This way I can show my wife and she can get off my A*#!!! :hihi:

My friend reciently turned to sharply and put the kayak that was in the bed of his truck through the front of his TT. He spent a few hours and and was able to make all the repairs himself. I'm sure my day is comming....

We had just unhitched in the c/g half an hour away from Middlebury when Don comes around the corner. He felt pretty bad that he put a pretty nice ding into the side of our one hour old tt while trying to stow the wdh bars into the front storage.... we figured one of us would 'do a ding' eventually, but not quite that soon LOL . *knock on wood* so far after three years it's the only one

This past Wkd at Lake Ahquabi CG Iowa, I noticed a new Coachman with slide out dented really bad on bottom. Turns out he drifted off the CG where the roads were crazy tight and drop off just off pavement. We saw him later looking at that area of road, I felt bad for him. It could've happened to anybody!

We picked up a "new to us" Jayco Eagle Super Lite 256RKS this past Saturday in a private sale. It was an absolutely perfect trailer. We were taking it to our Jayco dealer to check bearing/brakes and roof. About 4/10ths of a mile from the dealer, a wrong way driver crossed over a double yellow line in front of us, I had to move to the shoulder and brake hard. The unlicensed driver missed my Dodge Ram and hit the trailer. Luckily I avoided what could have been an ugly head-on.

I owned it less than one hour. I wish it was just a scratch!!!!!

Our 2004 5er is only new to us, but it didn't have any damage other than minor routine fading . . . . until we decided to haul our cornhole boards in the truck bed. All was well until one of the boards blew up on edge, and the next dip we encountered at the entrance to a CG caused the 5er nose to crunch down on the board, making a dent and small hole in the metal sheeting underneath the overhang. With an aluminum patch, all will be well again - but that's the last time we will carry the cornhole boards in that manner.

Backing into a site at night, and alone. I was worried about a tree branch that was sticking into the campsite on the road side of the trailer. I stayed well away from the branch, but didn't notice the shrub on the curbside. It left its mark, but the trailer uprooted the shrub. I think the Z won...
