Results of Unsecured EZup[image]

If you're new to RVing and set up stuff like EZ-ups and such around others, PLEASE make sure you have that stuff mega tied to the earth before you leave it unattended (or better yet take everything down while gone).

I cried for the Prevost owner & I don't even know who the owner is.

An expensive lesson for the C owner. Might assist them complying with manufacturer’s instructions too.

I am sure there was no intent. Just a careless accident Did you cry because it was a Prevost, or because a low life class C had the unmitigated gall to be close to the kings ride.
I am sure that the Prevost owner has insurance and although a pain, will not cause him financial distress.
Why does the Brand and type make a difference, this is akin to naming the race of a person when race has nothing to do with the story!

So you are saying the Prevo guy should pick up the tab? I don't think so

Who says the C pictured owned the EZ up? It could have come from anywhere.

I hate EZ ups! They aren't sturdy and as seen here can blow up and away. If you can't read directions then you shouldn't be allowed to have them..........or much of anything.
The guy probably bought it because he left the awning out and that got destroyed!

I tell ya, class C owners!!! [emoticon]

Yes that is exactly what I am saying. That is what insurance is for. At most the king could sue the low life for the deductible!

It was their stuff, I walked by it all set up a 1/2 dozen times over 2 days before it ended up in the side of someone else's very expensive coach.

Yes I cried because it was the nicest coach (at least custom paint wise) I'd ever seen. I cried because I can appreciate fine things in this world, wether they're owned by people wealthier than me or not is irrelevant, they're still fine things. I put myself in that person's shoes thinking that if I'd worked my @ ss off to get a dream coach & then to have it needlessly damaged because of someone else's negligence, I'd be pissed.

I thought about the stress with having to deal with someone I didn't know trying to get reimbursed, about having to spend my valuable time/effort rectifying damage done to my property. I surely didn't think that because the person owning the Prevost had money then it was no big deal to have his stuff damaged by others.

ETA: I own a Class C smaller than the one I referenced in my post so insinuating that I'm someone sitting on a hill looking down on peons that can only afford a Class C is not applicable here. Nice try with the class warfare approach though.
