A great place to be if the trailer rolls over on top of you. It might not crush you, but how long before anybody finds you or can get to you?

We still have abandoned wreckage here from 10 months ago. Sometimes the cleanup is indeed a looong process.

I can't believe they left the plastic lid on! I mean at least find a better lid! /:

I can see potential and agree with the prior posts to an extent. If something covers the lids, how are they going to breathe? Add some venting and a hose to reach the air. It can be altered to make a great shelter for one person, but I want to be able to talk with them, so connect them side by side with a window cut out? My husband told me someone had bought a partially broken culvert and buried it in the ground and placed a ladder to get to it. I imagine the guy placed vents and whatever to make it work. Nothing better than concrete and underground to be very safe during storms. Make sure location can't and won't flood and do lots of research to make it right.

I think the "redneck" factor just takes the cake, though.

They'd do better popping for a backyard safe room. Can we take up a collection for these poor slobs before a twister nukes them?
