I was the happiest person in the world for about a half hour today. On Friday, I removed our winter cover for the Berk.
Today (Sunday) I wanted to take it out for a short drive and let things get a coat of oil on them.
It was great driving down the highway with a huge smile on my face, anticipating the trips that await us this summer.
Then I got home.
At the top of my driveway I have to make a 90-degree turn to the left to get it on the concrete pad. On the left side of that pad is a pile of dirt still covered by snow. Unbeknownst to me, simultaneously, the cargo door for the propane tank opened and the left front tire slide on a patch of ice, and the coach went off the pad, jamming the now open cargo door into the pile of dirt.
Needless to say the door is crumpled beyond repair. I dont' think there is any other damage by the hinges.
Here is my dilemma: I don't yet know how much that door cost to replace and match with the colors. Can they be purchased from forest river painted?
Has anyone had to replace one and know the cost? That would help me decide if I want to claim it on my insurance or bite the bullet.
