I had the same thing happen to my fifth wheel. The fiberglass side panels can be fixed by many people. My local auto repair shop had the space to fit it inside. Side has been buffed and repainted with two part epoxy, total damage just under $ 10 000, Just to let you know if you have someone you trust with your car, they may be able to fix the rv

If you call the Georgetown service center at (574) 206-7600, they might have a recommendation.

Rule: afraid of elder driver?! Solution: sell your RV and hide under your pillow. In case you haven't looked, they are everywhere. I would rather fend off elderly drivers anywhere vs NUTS in Atlanta, on cell phones, texting, etc. Last year I actually passed a guy who was eating a sandwich and holding a book at 12 0'clock position on the wheel!!
You do realize this is HIGH season for snowbirds in Florida? Right?! They say that elderly are out and about more from 9 to 11am and 3 to 5pm.
Just say'n....
Accidents can happen anywhere. Not defending Florida drivers! You likely could not have avoided the collision.
Thank goodness, no injuries!
Today's repair shops are excellent IF you select a good one. Call a couple of auto dealerships, ie Ford, Dodge, GM and get some recommendations.
Then check Better Bz Bureau.

Silverback - I was reluctant to post much. My comments were made as background. The older gentleman recognized that he should not have been driving and took himself off the road. I spent 22 years in the US Army, what scares me is not older drivers - what scares me are two things. Poor repairs and lectures. You can figure out your category.
