Believe it or not, it was only around $750 to repair the camper. New fender and that one panel. RV Outlet in Va. took care of me on the labor.

The replacement tires was the most expensive part. About an hour after that picture, we were on the jack at Discount Tire getting $1000 worth of 6 new Goodyear Marathons. Now I only go G rated tires.

TomStacey616. If you have the rims to handle the pressure and can swing the cost, look into some GoodYear G614s or at least a set of Sailuns. No tire is perfect but going G rated gives you some serious peace of mind.

I had my dealer install G614s on our Vengeance as part of the deal when we purchased the camper.

That's the tire... Looking at tires now...
Nice thing is, the dealer we got it at, will take it in to do the quote for insurance, then do repairs in the off season. We have a 100 deductible and they pay it!!
so, nothing out of our pockets, but tire expense.
