I'm an idiot, or Good thing Burley's are built like tanks
So I'm an idiot, I admit it. I wish I weren't, but sometimes, I am. I took the munchkins to the park today and since thier mother needed the car for work, and it's a really nice day, we took the trailer. Now a 16 month old and a 3 year old in the trailer is a lot of work, mostly because they always seem to be trying to kill each other in there, but it's still fun. On the way home, with the house in sight, things were at a fever pitch behind me so I turned to see if I could do some sort of moving crowd control. Then, I hit it. Yes I sideswiped a parked vehicle. I wish I could tell you it was dark, and the vehicle was hard to see, but its nice and sunny here and I sideswiped a Winnebago. And then the trailer hit it too. And I have never been more pleased with anything I have ever owned. We have a 2006 model D'lite which still has the framerails on the outside of the wheels, unlike the new ones that don't have that feature. The trailer just sort of bounced loudly off with no visible damage.
And the kids stopped fighting.
My arm seems to have taken the brunt of the force though and is swelling up nicely, looks like I get to ice it during nap time.
I love our Burley.
