2018 2902ws Hit in storage lot

I was just informed my new trailer was hit in the storage lot by a worker dumping gravel. They will pay, but I just hate repairs to my new rig when its less than a year old. I have attached some pics, wondering what you all think about how they "should" repair it. Replace both left and back skins???

Take it to your dealer and get a written estimate for repairs. Tell the lot owner the estimate and inform them that you will proceed with repairs and they are on the hook for the final, total repair cost.

That ain't gonna be cheap or easy. I'd try to get them to take it back to the mfg. for back wall replacement and side wall repair. Most RV dealers aren't set up to replace the back wall.
The pantry will probably have damage to the partition wall between it and the fridge.

i'm not sure a dealer is set up to do those types of repairs. looks like i job for an rv body shop. ask the dealer for his recommendations as to who and where. also your insurance company may have some recommendations. get the name and number of the lot owners insurance company and the workers insurance company and let them know you are taking it to a repair facility of your choice and that they will pay. see how they respond. you might also inform them that you are expecting compensation for lack of ability to use. this repair could take some time. you have to find, interview, and approve of the repair facility. take many pictures! hopefully this will be covered and handled professionally and competently.

That is not even close to reasonable.

That's too bad. If I were at fault, I'd try to temporarily fix it to get through the season and then fix it in the winter. Since the storage place is at fault, seems you need to fix it asap to ensure you get it fixed and there are no surprises.

Good luck.

WOW!! They must have hit your trailer really hard to flip it completely over onto its top!

Hire a lawyer to handle the accident and they can pay the attorneys fees as well. Their Insurance company will try to screw you anyway they can.
