great point dave and one of the reasons this thread was started...

look again at the pix in post #2...

BOTH doors on the white box trailer are blocked by a big honkin' tree...

all the other windows only partially open except for the official exit window in the slide out...

this family didn't want to 'break' a window to get out after the storm calmed down...

i can understand that thinking; it's how many folks think...

but had there been a fire or gas leak or other slowly building event after the storm calmed...

well waiting for the fire department to arrive and help with the 'exit' should not be the first choice...

in most cases.

and our airstream have safety glass so i'm not sure if it takes more effort to break out a window...

now, after parking/setting up i take a quick look at the ground and surroundings near my exits...

so IF i do need to fall out a window i can anticipate the landing...

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
