I got rear ended yesterday wondering if it might be totalled?

Hey guys I got rear ended on the way home in our 2017 clipper 17bh and the camper got pushed forward about an 1 an 1/2 inches forward on the frame.Ny rear wheel well the back of it is against the tie tires.The back wall is pushed into the toilet and the siding has some creases in it.I jave never dealt with any kind of collision work on a camper before just wondering what your thoughts are before I take it in?

That sounds like a pretty good hit. I'm glad you are ok. Hope they total it and hope you gave good insurance. Also get your hitch looked at under your tow vehicle to make sure there is no damage to the hitch or frame of the TV.

My TV's hitch is bent down at about a 10 degree angle.The receiver for the travel trailer actually cracked the weld where the drop part comes down for the ball to mount on.My side door entry is not lined up with my step anymore.Has anyone ever heard of them either pulling or disassembling the camper part of the trailer to put back on the frame in the proper spot?

What you do is get his insurance information and then report the incident to both insurance companies. They will take it from there, contact each other, etc.

Sorry to hear about your wreck. Glad all are ok. It sounds totaled to me, that's a significant amount of damage. Make sure to get all of your gear out of it and if any of that was destroyed, include it in the damages. Good luck with your claim(s) .

I do live in a state that has no fault I am in Michigan so I guess my insurance pays for it and then they get my deductible from his insurance which sucks.I am taking the camper to the dealer when they open because I was afraid if I got it unhitched that I wouldn't be able to get it back on.I will let you guys know what the dealer says and thanks for the replies

Were you in Michigan when the accident happened? Were you on your way home from dealer with a brand new unit?? or on your way home from a camping trip??

Glad you weren't hurt.

Maybe yes, maybe no. Doesn't always work that way.

Very minor (I thought) scrape on my truck. Did report to my ins as cya. I could have run through them, but I pay deductable and try to recover. Her ins was great to work with. Astonished by cost, because this is connected to that, etc.

And of course merely reporting the issue, as I am required, counts against me. . . .

I'd expect this one to be totaled out.
