While camping overnight in Meridian, Ms. we were awaken in the middle of night by a tree limb coming through our camper roof. No rain or high wind at the time. Next morning we went to office and told Mgr. who is also owner what damage was done to our camper, and their comment was its and act of god so we are not responsible. Looking around the park over half the trees their were rotten with dead limbs getting ready to fall, also many were all ready lying on the ground. How can it be that the owners are not responsible, when you can clearly see the trees are rotted and have been for some time. If we were not in a hurry to be hundreds of miles away, because of family death, I would have fought this, for its not easy to fork out 860.00 because owners will not take care of property. Would like to hear from others who may know laws reguarding something like this. mad.gif mad.gif

Casciaj sorry to hear about this and the death in your family, I'm not familiar with all the laws concerning this but in CT I have seen a lot of the campgrounds have some sort of tree cutting with the tree limbs, my guess liability laws are probably different up here. Hope you have some sort of RV insurance to cover some of the cost.

You got me thinking of what happened on our camping trip this early spring in CT, noticed a rotten limb directly above my kids tent end on the hybrid, didn't open it and had my son sleep on the couch. I formed the campground owner the next day when we were leaving and he sincerely thanked me for informing him... he sent one of his young help to remove the limb.
