Road hazards for the polished Airstream

Well, I knew about smashed bugs, bird poop and tree sap.

As a Harley rider in Texas I knew of this hazard...not to follow to close...but I really did not think about being passed while towing my polished Caravel or being stuck behind for a while. BEWARE of the little yellow liquid poofs that come from all sides and the darker more solid projectiles. It plays hell with the aluminum skin.

Avoid these....

Even a little single horse trailer can ruin your whole day.

Yes, we all hate these little road hazards. We got seriously blasted by chicken ---- in Mississippi last year, from a truck full of them that passed us, all over our freshly washed RV.
