Also, to some of the other replys, no,... dry ice and pdr (paintless dent repair) won't work on aluminum sided trailers. Also you dont repair dents in aluminum sided trailers by just filling the dent.
Trust me, i work in the auto collision industry and i looked at everything. The only way to repair dents in aluminum sided campers is to re-skin them.

Anyways almost every panel had a little dent, but not bad, but every panel would have to be replaced to fix. Also all the vents were broken.
Insurance totaled it since repair costs were $19,000. We could have retained it but buy back was $12,500 so i elected to let it go.
We have Oklahoma farm bureau and they were very fair to deal with.
Good luck!

Edit- sorry, wrote the wrong name in at the beginning of my reply
I to am from Oklahoma.....Lawton to be exact....will call insurance company, State Farm, and take it from there......thanks!

Seen you were from down there. Hope they get you taken care of!

Might wait to turn the claim in till we're out of storm season. I believe you have about 18 months to turn a claim in. No sense in paying 2 deductibles in one season.
I asked my agent about it, and i got it patched up and turned in my claim the end of june, about a month or so after the tornado went thru.

A little over a week ago we had a decent hail storm come through Fort Worth. This was on a Thursday. On Saturday of that week we were to take our old TT in and trade it in on our new fiver. The hail storm caused a bit of damage. Hundreds of pings to the street side, broke out both tail lights and the reefer cover on the roof. I just changed out the lights and reefer cover and we took it in hoping for the best. Our salesman told us to just file the claim, have the check made out to the dealer, and they would still give us what they offered us for the trade in. No harm no foul. Worked out fine for us. I was out about fifty bucks for supplies and parts to get it roadworthy and dry again.


We now have covered storage.

Lived in Altus , Ok for many years and had many hail storms, State Farm always stepped up fast and took care of our motorhome, cars and house. When you live in Ok it is a way of life.

I guess local restrictions prevent you having a metal car port/shelter for
your trailer?

I live in city limits and that would be out of the question in my neighborhood. Keep the TT at my work place in our equipment yard.

I had hail damage which damaged the Skylight but not the sides there was a guy sitting next to me with aluminum siding and he was pockmarked all over one of the sides
I think fiberglass is better in these situations.
