In our years of living in the country we have hit four deer, had good handling vehicles to swerve and avoid hitting several other deer, a moose, and a bear and cubs. The last deer I hit came part way through the windshield, three of our friends in town have lost part or all of their leg to deer strikes on their motor cycles, another girl was killed when one came through their windshield. Towing your Airstream through the countryside may be different than driving in the city.
Since having our Airstream we have had to swerve a lane-changing driver into us near Washington D.C., a pair of deer in South Dakota, and another lane changer in California.
Swerving is dangerous but the alternative is a certain collision in many situations. Good handling vehicles and tow combinations that can execute them are not vastly exaggerated in our experience.
