Yikes... Dealer dropped my 5ver off the truck...

They will dump it at auction after repair
Stuff happens
As was mentioned earlier these units have so many problems to begin with that kind of jolt is going to cause unseen problems for years
One can only guess at the leaks,slide out problems internal plumbing electrical not to mention the overall appearance
You bought New
You expect new
If you were in the Used market than this may be a gamble you would take
Doesn't sound like you will have the piece of mind New ownership provided
Just my .02

I never saw a Hearse towing a Trailer

'93 Coleman pop ups (I'm Dad)
'04 Fleetwood Jamboree 26q
'14 Sunseeker 2860DS

No way, no how could they get me to except that trailer. If they won't order you a new - go to another dealer. It's their trailer not yours!

Would not take delivery of this unit. Let them unload it at auction or something.
Maybe you could parlay this into a no cost upgrade

No Way

I agree with everyone. Do not accept the trailer. No matter what they say, you are under no obligation to accept this damaged trailer. Kudos for them being honest about it in the first place.

Don't touch it. Start over even if it means delaying.

Went and saw it yesterday. No cracks in the fiberglass, just chipped gel coat. So, the initial phone calls made it sound worse than what it was.

..that you could see from the outside! Agree with the many posters above who said there could be internal damage to components that you can't see. And that these things have enough problems if "good" that this isn't a complication that you want. Here's a new one: what if the frame got bent (that you can't see) but don't discover until mile number one out of the dealers lot when it's yours. Chalk me up as another who'd walk away but you seem to be trying to justify that it's ok (IMHO - that's how I read your posts).
