(Water)Will they total or fix it?

Our recently purchased 2013 Salem 26TBUD flooded on Friday. A couple of hours of running water from the back to the front of camper on the kitchen side starting at the bathroom and pouring out the lower front seam and filling the underbelly and floor registers. Bathroom vanity is showing signs of delamination already. I immediately cut a few small relief holes in the underbelly. I called the adjuster immediately and he called me on Tuesday to take it to the dealership and the underbelly was still draining. I thought the tub overflowed by the also found a faulty supply line and a crack in the toilet. I dries out the inside immediately and was running a dehumidifier all weekend. I am uncertain and extremely concerned about the potential outcome. If it was a quick fix, I would accept it, but if repaired it will be out of commission almost all summer. We had tone of places booked all summer and I never even got a chance to sleep in it yet.

Assuming dry out, new insulation, underbelly,vanity, toilet, and possibly some floor repair, how expensive do these repairs get. Is there a good chance of it being totaled? It is hard to feel at ease knowing that 6 months of planning our summer trips is now in jeopardy. My wife and daughters have been moping around for days. With things in limbo as they are, I am sure I would get crushed trading it in there to try and salvage the summer.

What kind of cost threshold is there for determining fix or total?
