This is what happens if you have your camper on a bind turning around in a campground with no turnaround. We found ourselves in a small state forest campground which was smaller than we had thought. It had no turn around, and I was backing into a spot to turn around when there was a loud bang. The two pieces on the left used to be the anti-sway portion of one side of the Reese hitch. Nobody in the immediate area (this is relative in West Virginia, as immediate covers towns that are 50 miles away) has this piece. To continue to another campground, improvisation was required. I eliminated the anti-sway, and just used the chain to have weight distribution capability. If you travel, this kind of thing becomes fairly common, and your ability to improvise will make the difference between having a story and having a ruined vacation. We limped down to another campground, loved it, and ended up staying for two weeks and exploring the area. The dealer near my home had the piece I needed, and he sent it down with my parents, who were to meet us a few days later. Kudos to Stewart’s RV!
