RV crashworthiness and fire safety issues.
« on: July 07, 2013, 06:31:01 PM »
Hello all,

I recently published a blog about RV safety both in terms of crashworthiness and fire safety.  The first section is at http://www.grizzlylaw.com/rv-safety-and-dangers/.  I would appreciate your feedback.

I liked this quote:  "As we were traveling through the great wasteland of northern Nevada," doesn't seem to be too keen on the Silver State eh?  But of course, his being from Montana and all.

Looks like he has a Prevo ...

In general the Silver State is great, but you gotta admit there really are some really big great nothings in places there. :)

I'm not sure what sticks and staples have to do with BUS converted motorhomes but this is a lawyer looling for information.

Mtlaw,

What kind if info are you looking for? I have about 20 years of accident investigation involving buses.
I have done about 25 involving motorhomes. Worst case for RV was a dumpsyer for the body and tow truck for chassis.

He is just trying to drum up traffic for his website. Sticks and staples. Wrong place to be.

Siberyd,

You obviously know more about bus accidents than I do with your extensive work in accident investigation.  Did you come at it from a law enforcement background, engineering, etc?

and others,

BTW I certainly realize much of the information is not as applicable to buses as it is to "sticks and staples", but I thought some of you might find it interesting, if nothing else in feeling superior.  Furthermore, the fire safety issues can apply just as much in some bus conversions and egress is a critical factor that some do not consider.

Nevada, Utah, and even parts of Oregon fit the bill.  Idaho has a spot where they train astronauts because the terrain resembles the face of the moon.

It's all good.  Just depends on how you look at it I suppose.
