Nuts!!!! Don't you just hate it when the awning falls off???!!!
This past spring during a brutal heavy rain and wind storm we were headed east on the Trans Canada highway just outside of Vancouver and on the shoulder was the remains of a 16 ft or longer awning. Arms and all, it looked like the whole thing, including the rail it slids into on the side of the trailer, was ripped off. We figured the camper who lost it was going to have a very bad evening
, or worse. We did not see any sign of a rig pulled over along the highway.
Had we been in the truck I'd of stopped to pick it up, and it was also raining unbelievably hard. I'd of been soaked in less time than it would have taken to pick up the first couple of pieces. We went past the next morning early and it was already gone. We wondered how far the rig got before they realized it was missing. It was one of those rains where looking in your mirror you couldn't see a darned thing.
