I am truly sorry for the person or people that owned it - it was probably their vacation home. **** Jeremiah

Good to know no one was hurt. I'm still sorry for them - motorhomes are sometimes home for retired people who spend their retirement traveling. I hope they didn't lose everything dear to them. **** Jeremiah
