Been there, got the T-shirt.
We had turned into a very narrow road as instructed to approach the camp site. Only when we had turned could we see the notice ROAD CLOSED. There was a large lorry blocking the road for workmen. No way we could turn the outfit while coupled, so had to unhitch. A lot of hassle trying to turn and re-hitch. Another lorry arrived and chasing us to hurry. (I did moan about the stupid positioning of the notice)
Of course, hurrying to get hitched, obviously something went wrong. We were OK driving the 300/400 yds to alternative access road, but hit a cattle grid at the entrance. Suddenly, caravan was detached.
As this was now the only access road to the village, there was a quick build up of vehicles. As I started to try to re-hitch the motorist behind ran up with a very helpful question, "how long will it take you,we are in a hurry?' and then went back to his car. Stop and help, of course not, he was in too much of a hurry.
Learnt my lesson with that and always careful to check, no matter what the urgency may be.
