What The...?

So we're minding our own business, driving down I-15 when Mike looks out and notices something hanging from the side of the trailer. We stopped to investigate and discovered that at some point our roll-up awning had been completely ripped off the side of the trailer and was gone! We can only guess what happened and when. I just hope no one was behind us when it happened. We're completely mystified by this. Lots of questions. No answers. Fortunately no damage to the trailer. Gorilla tape to the rescue until we can get it fixed.

Oh dear, hope it is not too difficult (or expensive) to repair.

It looks like a nice big trailer, no wonder you can bring the cats along. So sorry about the awning!

Ouch, that hurts, lol. We lost ours too, so need to replace it. Love the scenery and love the material with the squares and swirls.

Oh my gosh, Barbara, that's awful. I really hate you lost your awning. And it's kind of crazy, too -- I've never heard of that happening before! Glad y'all are safe. Hugs! :)

Been there and done that only it was in the camp ground. My husband left it out and came home and we got a call from our neighbour telling us it blue off. We had just traded it in and they were coming Monday to pick it up. Didn't buy and awning with the last trailer. Built a deck with a roof.

Have you ever seen the movie 'RV'? You didn't forget to roll it up before leaving a camp ground did you? Nah, just kidding you. I am sorry you lost it. I hope you can get it repaired without it costing a fortune.

Oh, how scary? I am so glad nothing happened to you or to other people or vehicles. I hope it is not outrageously expensive to get it fixed.
