I now have a much better understanding of TT, and will ask the dealer appropriate questions regarding structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and interior construction. I truly appreciate the knowledge and experience of this forum's members, and will definitely pay it forward. Onward thru the fog!

You mentioned no insurance?? Not sure about the state you live in but, usually when towing, the trailer is covered by the vehicle/truck insurance. If you have collision on the truck, maybe it's extended to the Microlite too??

Maybe not everywhere, but only liability coverage, not collision, is extended by tow vehicle in my part of the world.

holes

Poked a hole in my new MH backing into the garage eavetrough. I picked up a fiberglass repair kit at the auto supply. It comes with feberglass material, resin and hardener and applicator. Made a quick fix with a little sanding and a touch of bondo. Finished it with a can of duplicolor and clear coat. Cannot tell it was there. Info is in case you are cheap like me.

You better read your policy good, what is wrong with you, you know better, what will happen if it's sitting outside your barn and a another Tornado comes through, your car insurance. Or homeowners will not claim that, next time I see you remind me to give you a smack.

I don't know the trailer....any chance you could add another window in that spot or put in a larger to cover both?

In Ontario, if you do not have specific trailer insurance and you are not attached to your vehicle when the "accident" occurs, you are on your own.

I live in Dacula. Do you mind telling me where the shop is in case I need a good one in the future? Thanks!!




"Well one thing we are very fortunate in our area to have a very good RV repair service. Toured there shop earlier this year and I think they could actually build an RV at there facilities. Had a 5er there that got side swiped and they even built a new slide for it and when done the paint was awesome and one would never know it was in an accident. Hope I never have to use them but I will if I have an accident. Later RJD "
