That's why I said he would be better off if it was a right off.

There is a very good reason for that. Like "uni-body construction," these campers don't take "hits" well. A bump in the rear can cause severe water intrusion up front due to the "racking" of the frame.

Thanks for that bit of info... I would have never guessed that would total a TT.

I have the estimate back this morning from the repair center and insurance company -

$8950 to fix completely. Almost $8000 of that is labor and paint work. Parts were just over $1000. The whole rear panel was only $350 or so for the panel. That surprised me. Repair center is telling us and insurance they can repair the side panel and after blending, paint and new decals will look "as new" according to the written quote.

No internal damage and no water damage. I was curious about the water damage as we had most of the interior celing replaced from that skylight recall last year.

No write off - estimated street value was $15-$16K on the camper so this is just over half its value in damage.

Just watch out for delamination at the seam and the bottoms of the wall panels (wicking up from cracked bottom seals).
