Shows how poorly built rvs are. If that were the front of a pickup it would be toast.

Soft landing. Living in the northern Rockies, deer, elk and moose on the road at night can make driving after dark really dangerous. We used to drive under the speed limit and have a spotter in the front seat. No drinking allowed if we had to drive at night.

A work associate came in late to work one morning when I lived in Laramie, WY at 7,200 feet. He hit a deer on the way to work. It was his 9th.

Deer probably has some internal injuries, but you'll never know.

Wow!
Darn tough animals they are.
May or may not make it, but impressive performance by the deer nonetheless.

I've seen what a deer can do to the front of a truck but never considered the damage it could do to the front of a TT.
