Camper knocked off frame!

I was in a head-on collision towing my 24 foot travel trailer. The camper is now about 4 inches forward on the frame. I think the body is loose on the frame. At least the fasteners have to be stretched or broken. Sounds unsafe to tow, doesn't it?

Unfortunately yes it is unsafe. Some of the fasteners probably broke and the camper could literally come off the frame.

Thats a shame, but more importantly hope no one was injured.

Wow! One of our nightmares - being involved in an accident in our RV. Sure hope y'all are ok. I know, at the least, you would be terribly shook up!
