Actual Case

This is an actual case brought by Mrs. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Mrs. Grazinski purchased a brand new 32-foot Winnebago motor home. On her first trip home, (from an OU football game), having driven onto the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the drivers seat to go into the back & make herself a sandwich. Not surprisingly, the RV left the freeway, crashed and overturned. Mrs.Grazinski sued Winnebago for not advising her in the owner's manual that she couldn't actually do this. The jury awarded her $1,750,000 plus a new motor home. The company actually changed their manuals on the basis of this suit, just in case there were any other complete morons around.

I had to check this out. The Mrs. turns into a Mr. and the names change; nothing I've found substantiates this is anything but an urban legend. Here are three links - there's more, but these drive the point home. It's a funny (although scary) scenario, though.

I once was behind a small motorhome going down I-4 . We watched thru his back window . The driver very cautiously left the drivers seat and stretched out and successfully retrieved something from refridge .
