All good suggestions, but tried and no go at anything within 30 miles. No go on temp repair to truck either. The headlight/turn signal bucket is smashed, and the underlying support structure is bent and damaged. Also has to have a 4 wheel alignment. Got 1200 miles to go to get home, don't want to take any chances with possible hidden damage cropping up during that long of a journey. As all will agree, way to much $ invested, to say nothing of our lives, to take chances. I don't have to be anywhere, so we'll work it out. Still a good possibility we can get into citrus hills, or Sanlan, just gotta wait till Monday.

Have you tried around Orlando? A bit of a drive down I4. But not that bad.

Talk to the body shop about having it moved to their parking lot.


A-they are getting 3k profit for fixing your truck so they will most likely accommodate you


B-this will also motivate them to get your truck done ASAP


C-I'm certain they will have a city water faucet for you to have a water source


D-They will at least have 110 so you can plug up low amp shore power for the bare necc.


E-when your truck is done, you can pull around the building, hook up and head out.


Not the best scenic camping, but crap happens some times and I really think they would help you out.

Fender is not the problem, does not hit tire. Had asked body shop for space, no go there.

What about parking camper at a storage lot or rv dealer and using a motel to stay in for a few days?
To me that sounds like your only choice.

What will happen IF your trailer is still there on the 13th?

Is there no one there who would help you out by moving you to another CG for the price of fuel?

Does the body shop have a truck that can move the trailer for you?

Sounds to me like you need to talk to the CG at using their on site storage for a few until truck is good.
