Trashed side of coach - who wins the prize?

A while ago I wrote of that jumping bollard at the Vermont border station that slammed into the side of my coach. Well the first glance estimate was about $5000. Someone here responded and said that should be doubled. Well, whoever you are - I haven't looked back - but you win the prize for being the closest. Current estimate submitted to insurance - just over $11000. What's the prize? It would have been a good battle of scotch but owing to Mike's suggestion (how to handle such a crunch - good insurance and good scotch), the scotch is gone, so, too bad.
And I have to move into a motel for a week also. FYI, see if you can guess what that louvered panel left rear costs - I wont drag out the suspense - $1849.
Well at least the compartment doors held together and could be closed for the trip through the Maritimes last month. Good trip - would recommend it to everyone. Only problem was the really bad roads throughout.

If I ever need to replace that louvered panel -- good to know it's still available.

Good question. My wild guess was "at least $8000". Basil guessed "at least $15,000" and Wayne said he paid $10,800 for similar damage in 2001 but did not hazard a guess with current pricing.

I wish you could take first place but 4 doors on passenger side are up to just about 15,000. Guess NC mountain rocks are better at jumping out than Vermont ones
