MAJOR DAMAGES to the tune of 30k minmuim..
I always park away from any entrances ramp since then~!
Wow, good advice. And it was a good thing they were eating their lunch at a picnic table instead of inside their camper.

Yes, you are so right..I am sure they felt the same way.
The entire side of it was crushed inward..
Tough break but, still a blessing in that noone was hurt~!

The possible exception are the exits in a big city.
We rely on the "Next Exit" book to find safe places to camp while enroute to our destination. We have never had a problem at truck stops. Most truck stops have started to realize that attracting the RV market is good for their bottom line. Many provide separate RV-camping areas (away from idling semi's) and dump stations and fresh water.
