Wow how dumb can you get

The company I work for called last Thur and want me to transfer hours away. I thought what a great opportunity to use my A/S. I needed to do quite a bit of work on her. After 3 days I was worn out and not thinking clearly.....Well i moved her 1/3 mile from storage to my house worked really hard all day til dark. When i took her back to storage i had a landscape timbeer in the truck bed. I made a turn and the dang timber dented the front of the trailer and broke out my curb side window. I could have thrown up. I am looking for both curb and street side , '72 31 sovereign land yatch.
Will greatly appreciate any leads.

Richard, I was hauling an awning in the back of my 8 foot bed truck. It stuck out past the tailgate, but I (thought) that wouldn't be a problem. When I got to my destination, the Avion had a dent in the front trim, under the large front window. At least my out of production window was not damaged.

Wing windows and/or a side window as well?

Friends were on their way to a rally when the engine blew on their TV. The tow company put their TV on a roll back and hitched the trailer to the back of the tow truck. The hitch was mounted on a tongue that could be extended and retracted. The driver retracted the tongue, bringing the Airstream rather close to the back of the truck. He then proceeded to tow the Airstream to the rally. He had drawn the trailer up so close to the back of the truck that when he made right and left turns, the rear bumper of the TV knocked out center front window and damaged the curved window guards and aluminum panels on the late model Airstream. Fortunately, it didn't get the large corner windows.

How dumb is that?

Hi Andy, Nice talking to you last week about the bolts for the leveling jacks. It is the curb side window on the front of the unit

We just got our 2010 Sport back from JC after I backed it into our Pontoon putting a hole in the center rear panel and denting the road side rear panel. Looks like new after $2700 repair.

Its good to know that anyone of us is capable of doing the "DUMB THING"
