Yes and unscathed.
I have pictures but not a clue on how to post them.
The camper was strapped down to a small (4x8) flat bed trailer and to my surprise it was fine.
As a bonus I had had a consistent small leak directly below the windows so I pulled them out to reseal.
I decided to replace the plexiglass with tempered glass (thank you D1trout) and after rushing to get them installed, Irma was the test, No leaks !

I'm hoping my fellow Floridian Avionista Rastaman came out of this ok.

We lost a beautiful old willow but ourselves, the house and garage all survived.

Thats neat. The pictures I saw, countless RV's and mobile homes were reduced to landfill candidates.
