Body Damage

On the way back from Pleasanton, CA we stopped at the Pea Soup restaurant off of the I-5. I got hit in the passenger side rear cargo door and trim. The culprit took off (of course). I got my estimate. No frame damage just body damage. Check out the photo. Anyone want to guess the repair for a less than 12 inch gouge? 2000 Tradwinds by National RV.

$2500.00

The door is about $800.00 install and paint is the rest.

The quote is without the door. They will repair the door and the trim.

WOW

Too bad you live way out there in Nevada. Here by St. Louis I just had the 2 rear passenger cargo doors repaired and painted to match original paint- $500..
Previous owner had backed into something and kept backing. Doors were dented and creased along the bottom of each. My son helped me remove them (took about 20 minutes) and then I dropped them off on a Monday and had them back on by Saturday.

Not trying to rub it in but seems prices are a little more reasonable here in the Midwest.

Good luck with yours.

I had something similar , only worse. I had to get a new door and rear cap to the tune of a $16,000.00 insurance claim.

This is such a scam. I cannot see the cost for me so high. I am trying to get the photo uploaded. It is crazy. I am going to do some shopping.

Look around for pricing. I had a gouge across two cargo doors on my Winnebago (plastic fill and paint) , 3x3 fiberglass damage to rear bumper and 7" fiberglass gouge on front corner. I got all repaired and painted including clear coat in my driveway by a local body shop with a mobile repair van for $700.00

Your repair quote is way too high! Any reputable shop that does fiberglass work should consider that an easy repair.
Even the paint portion should be a piece of cake for a good painter....
Get some more quotes!

I had a tangle with a concrete post about 9 months ago. I got 6 estimates: Two of about $1000. Two in the $2500 range and Two in the $4000 range and up. I took one of the $2500 estimates because the shop was a preferred repair facility of our insurance co. No adjuster, just photos and phone calls.

End result was a excellent repair, lifetime warranty on the work and an increase in my premium of $10 a month.

Thanks everyone! SSWilson, your results make much more sense. Here in Las Vegas the second you go for a body shop estimate the lights go on saying "INSURANCE CLAIM". I did not want to use my insurance but I will if I have to. I know that fiberglass is not expensive to fix it's just time consuming. With that said I will shop around for other licensed body pros. For anyone who wants to know the company screwing me was Johnny Walker RV.

BTW I asked Johnny Walker for the cost of replacing the cargo door instead of repairing it. They wanted 1695.00. The breakdown 354 for the door, 100 for freight, 50 for crate, 600 for labor, and 555 for paint and prep. I think they boosted this job to protect their original bid.

I had a WAY bigger gouge than that and repaired it myself. I have some fiberglass experience in the boat industry, years ago. It is any easy repair. I don't even understand why a new door. That door is repairable even if the hinges are sprung, which I doubt. Visit a boat shop, sales and service and talk to some of the shop emplyees and see if any will do a backyard fix for you.
I would suggest about $250 plus materials.
