Did it blow up, or just fall apart?

Does not look like it was on fire - did someone run into it? Plane fly through it?

Looks to me like it was overloaded and exploded from the sheer internal pressure of stuff I wonder if it was called the "cram it inn"

A water heater explosion is capable of that. Long time ago, I saw a demonstration of one on TV. They put a mobile home in a field, hot wired the water heater, plugged the pop-offs and got back several hundred yards. When it blew it leveled it to the frame.

Could have been something he said like "honey grab me another beer" that really upset her.
Best,

Best,
Milliman....in SLC...'grab me another beer'....don't think so. It was probably more like 'honey, it's the other wife's turn in the motor home.' Just kidding! I love this place!

The next time someone asks me why they should buy a Classic Airstream Motorhome, I will be sending them a link to those photos! Whoa! That would never happen with the frame of an Airstream MH. That would have blown all the windows out of an AS but at least the frame would be intact.

It was a propane explosion. Two people inside, one injured. The disintergration of the coach probably helped to dissipate the energy of the explosion and keep them from being injured worse. If you store gunpowder you are required to use a container that will rupture if it explodes or catches fire.
