5 trips and 19 days so far this year.

Been out more this year then last year and over half of the season to go. So far we have had minimal problems with our 2014 Z1 301-BH. We have been in some bad storms on this trip and it has kept dry. I think we got about 3 to 4 inches of rain on Monday. Major flooding and our trailer was pushed side wise in the front. Almost got pushed off of the block under the tongue jack.

So happy to hear that the z-1 stays dry. We've only used ours once, and it was at a HOT Florida beach, so no rain yet. Keep the good news comin'!

I was a little scared to realize that the wind moved the trailer. We were in it when the second front came through. I did not realize this one was coming through. We rushed to take shelter in the shower house. They predicted 85 mph winds a 2 inch hail. Good thing they were wrong. There was a tornado about 45 miles away from here. I did not know it got pushed until the next morning. Saw the jack was almost off of the block. I was like that's not the way it was when I unhooked it.

Beautiful sunset picture! Glad to hear that you are enjoying your camper and that it is serving you well. I've been through some pretty bad storms in my campers in the past, and it is a little unnerving when the wind gets up while you are inside. It's good that you didn't have any damage.

Speaking of the wind, a few years ago, with our last RV, we were on an island in Michigan when the wind came up so fast that it took our awning and pulled one arm from the rv (ripped it out) and then snapped the main 4 inch aluminum bar in half. (Yes the bar that the awning wraps around) That was one hell of a wind. All I could think of was where the nearest culvert was to shove my family into. Go figure, no one from my family even woke up during the storm that night.

Ha Ha ---- I find our best sleep is with the pitter patter of rain drops on the rv (as long as the pitter patter is OUTSIDE and not inside )
