I was towing my 2006 Salem 26bh through Montana last week in the way to Yellowstone. Got sideswiped by an oncoming class C that crossed the centerline. We were both doing 65mph so the impact was significant. He has insurance.
Have damage on both my f350 crew cab doors. The trailer has 2 broken windows and damage on every single aluminum panel on the front and left side. Damage consists of small holes, large dents, small dents and gouges the entire length. Slide out is ok although the seal around it is slightly damaged.
Anyone know if insurance will repair or total? It's my understanding aluminum siding panels are replaced and not repaired? If so, it will need all new skin in the front an left side. I'm still on the road and curious if I should start considering a replacement trailer. Anxious to get it to an RV body shop next week for an estimate.
I figure book value is around 11k? I suspect repair costs will be significant and it may not be worth it to the insurance company.
Any experience or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
