Just Another One of THOSE Days
« on: October 01, 2021, 10:48:00 PM »
As I was about to turn into a firewood clients driveway this morning I was rear ended by a 2012 F150 4X4 pulling a fifth wheel camper and a tandem axle trailer with a two week old Can Am SXS.  No one was hurt.  My truck is totalled I'm fairly certain.  We may be able patch it up.  I do have full coverage.  His stuff is all wrecked.  I'm pretty sore now.

Did he break your trailer free from the impact?  Sorry to hear about the bad luck.  Stay far away from your barn during any meteor showers for a while.

That's the neighbors dump trailer I've been using on another project.  My 550 was all I had.  My son came down with the truck and trailer to unload the wood.  The other guy got a ticket for "Failure to Yield".

Here's to hoping for some better shakes for you guys. I think you need to take his insurance for a real ride, make it be his bad luck instead!

Wow glad you're ok. Sure looks like that truck  was over the max combined weight  rating of a F150. Never saw someone tow 2 trailers before. Hopefully it  all gets  straightened out soon.

   Glad to hear nobody was hurt and just property damage involved. The accident wasn't caused by a lightning strike or anything was it?  :-\

He rear-ended you and was cited for "Failure to Yield"?  Must have some strange laws in Maine, most places that would have been "inattentive Driving", "Following Too Closely", or perhaps an equipment citation related to brake failure.

Over loaded x2 I used to own a very similar 5th wheel pulled it with an f350. I wanted nothing smaller on it.  So that rv  and a loaded  trailer behind  an F150?!?.... "stupid is as stupid does."  
Sorry for your un ending stress lately.  Hoping next year makes up for it.  
Glad you are ok.

Oh man, I'm sorry this happened to you.  Surely that F150 was grossly over loaded.  It probably had no trailer brake controller.  The truck appears to be lifted, which doesn't help when towing.  I think he owes you for pain and suffering, much less the cost of your truck.
