Up Date With Insurance............

As of 10-01-11 the 2006 Rockwood 8314ss is going to salvage. Spent yesterday in the rain removing all of our stuff out of the rig.

The insurance company came back for a second look on Friday and said the damages were too close but the camper was repairable, after i had expressed concerns with items like mold and what repairs i may have to make over time with this kind of exposure to the hard and driving rain from Hurrican Irene they decided to salvage the camper, it has been 5 weeks since the hurrican and i noticed brown stuff leaking from the skylite into the tub while we were removing our items i have bad feelings about this, once i turn the keys in to the shop today Rving is over for use for now but we still have the cabin in Hershey.....Make sure your camper is insured....

Wade, that's too bad about the tt, but I'm glad they took care of you. I would have the same concerns if I were in your position.

Years ago when the tt I had at the time was beat up by hail, the adjuster came out and wrote me a check on the spot. The final repair bill was almost double! My insurance company did cover the difference, but had they came up with the final figure to begin with they may have totaled the tt.

Good luck to you and enjoy your time in your cabin.
Are you decorating for Halloween this year? If so, post some pics.

You were very lucky to not get more damages. Mother nature sometimes can be very dangerous. Have a look at a few pictures of our campground when the 1998 ice storm struck. SEVERAL TRAILERS WERE COMPLETELY DESTROYED BEYONG REPAIR.

NO It happened in winter while the trailrers were in storage in the campground. Electricity was cut for severals days because many trees fell over the electrical wires. I am including a few more pictures.

According to the BBC, the remnants of Irene are about to clobber norhern England and Scotland. The border area will have 40+ mph winds and temps in the mid 50s while the south coast is still in the high 70s and low 80s.

I am sorry on the date we had the ice storm. It was in 1989 and not 1998.
