  • Nash OTG Rear-Ended on i10 in Tucson AZ (not me)

    Driving down I-10, I saw a Nash OTG that got rear-ended. If ya'll are members here, hope you are okay.


    I will say, I was shocked as I drove by. The truck that hit the trailer looked to be totaled, radiator pushed in and a lot of front end damage. At a glance, the Nash looked like the ladder took some damage, as well as the spare tire. Frankly I was shocked that the back of the trailer wasn't caved in with how much damage the truck had. After seeing pictures of other trailers on forums in similar situations, I expected to see much worse damage.


    Again, if ya'll are on the forum, hope you are alright. When I passed by, I could see the owners of the trailer walking around it, with Police & Fire on scene.

    Sometime during the very beginnings of this forum I remember a story about a Northwood product that rolled in a freeway accent in California. It was put upright and taken to an RV service center and they said they had never seen a trailer in an accident like that that came out in one piece. It was repaired. Also, for years Northwood had a picture of an early Nash--probably about a 29 footer, that had been rolled over in a big windstorm in eastern Oregon. The wood frame held up.

        Dave, is that 27-5 accident the one in Idaho? It was caused by wind blowing him off the shoulder if I remember correctly. He passed away of cancer a few years later---lived in the Portland area. Same one? Of course there was Housted's wreck on the way to a rally one year....their trailer didn't fare so well. Another previous Colorado member took the top off of their 5er on a low over pass.

          The one I posted was a post from TimB... occurred in Nebraska during an unexpected wind gust.

            Nice clean underside on that trailer, and you can see how that rear grey tank might drain slowly.
