I remember watching a special on Figure 8 buses and trailer races.

Amazing.

Some old '70s era motorhomes were death traps.. as illustrated by the wood bodied Midas with no steel body framing except the cab.

And you get a leak in it and what wood framing you have rots..

A Class A (full size motorhome) Winnebago of that era rolled on the interstate not far from here killing both occupants.. There was nothing but the steel motorhome chassis intact.. the body was a pile of rubble..
