Toll booth mishap

on the way home this weekend I side swiped toll booth. Thought I had clearance on passenger side and heard a god awful screeching sound. I then panicked and went in reverse(bad move). I ended up with a passenger mirror the pivots freely without any resistance so the mirror just flops back and forth in the wind. The other damage is to the plastic wheel well trim is cracked.
I brought it to the dealer yesterday for scheduled work on the air-conditioner under warranty. I asked them to look at the damage but I'm afraid of what that will cost. Any cheaper alternatives to the dealer fixing these issues.

Not sure who else would fix it? In my hometown we have a large vehicle collision place for trucks and busses. They need RV parts etc. so Dealer is probably best and a call to your insurance. Sorry for the damage, that would make me sick.

That's nothing, I once took out a Candian border crossing booth awning. They told me to pull over and I thought I was in for it.

2 agents came up to me and asked if everyone was ok. They then asked me to estimate my damage so they could pay for it!

Got to love Canadians!

Yeah not pretty. My wife is just happy it wasn't her driving. I suspect this is going to cost a fortune.

That is what you pay insurance for.
