Fiberglass is probably the easiest thing in the world to repair. I can't believe anyone would replace an entire side for a little thing like that.



That's why folks get fiberglass boats.



That hole can just be patched over and repainted. If you can put tape over the hole, you can do a fiberglass patch.

Yep been there...not fun

Be sure to check inside to see if they damaged any of the wall. On my 3008w 2015 Rockwood Windjammer I discovered damage that was never reported by previous owner just carefully hidden. The inside wall was actually crushed along with the aluminum framing on the passenger side Vnose. mice were getting in and that's where they were coming in so I had to fill the void in the floor where the plywood was destroyed. wall was caved in. You couldn't see the damage from the outside but when I looked inside that's where I could see the damage and it was inside underneath the cabinets behind a false wall. Sorry to hear of your damage that's just Plum dirty pool.

Things have been so crazy, I completely forgot to come back and provide an update.


So the storage facility (which I have since moved out of) said they have no cameras that captured anything, so I was up the creek with my $500 deductible. The good news is the repair shop said this is an easy fix and is only cosmetic, so they will repair the fiberglass and decals and trim and I'll be on my way.


I have to say, took FOREVER for the insurance company and repair shop to agree on a price, apparently these kinds of repairs are not common so they went back and forth for a bit.


Some good news though is that I got a call from my insurance company yesterday saying they were mailing me the check for the repairs, but that their system screwed up somehow and they paid my $500 deductible in the check to me, and since it was their fault they were honoring their mistake so I can keep the $500 deductible and I really have no deductible to pay, I'll just be subjected to it next time. SCORE!


So, it will remain to be seen how the repairs come out, should be done in the next couple of weeks, but hopefully will be done with all of this shortly.


Thanks again for all of the helpful replies and info!

Thanks for the update. Now do not forget to post a picture of the repair after it is finished.

Glad it turned out good for you, but believe me, the Insurance Company will get their $500 back down the road, one way or another.

That's great news about the repair and the deductible. Sucks about the storage place, though. Sounds more like they were trying to avoid drama and give you the run around, than anything else. In one post, you said that they opened a claim with THEIR insurance company. Did you ever follow up with that? I'm sure that with waivers you signed and everything else, it would be more trouble than it's worth to get paid by their insurance company than your own, but...
You better believe I would be on Yelp, google reviews, and every other online site (especially any local facebook pages) giving a review of this storage facility and how when my very expensive camper was damaged, they did nothing to help me even figure out who did it.
