We live in Helotes Texas and we suffered through the hail storm. We have our Airstream motor home oparked at our residence, once the hail stopped we went to the motor home and discovered baseball size hail stones inside the motor home. Obviously everything on the roof was toast, all vents skylights and a/c units as well as inside floor and damage to the roof. It's at Texas Custom Coaches being repaired after 3 weeks of a hassle with Nationwide

Understand that you guys are still being hammered by storms. Good luck on the repairs.

As we drove through Del Rio Texas we remarked on the number of auto body repair shops advertising hail repair and these were permanent signs. Makes you want to live anywhere near that part of the world.

When I was a kid we use to get these in Wyoming from time to time. My dad would run out with a sleeping bag and throw it over the top of the car to prevent the dents and broken windows. Seem to work, trick was to get to it right way. I have a fiber glass roof, I coated it with white roof coating when it was new, never had a leak.

My local shop, who installed the new vents and covers, said they saw numerous spider web cracks and the awnings were dented and torn. They didn't think a "new roof" was in order, but, a roof repair was required. The motorhome is and older unit and I believe that a requirement for a total roof replacement would "total" the motorhome. I really don't want that.
We were in the great 5/17/2016 Kerrville hailstorm with you. Busted windshield on our Class A motor home and supposed roof damage. Insurance company has "totaled" our motor home. We are trying to do a buy back. Since we a real fulltimers, we're stuck here until it all gets resolved. Another storm 2 days later wiped out all the rental cars on a national companies lot.

As bad as it has been for us many have it far worse. We're in a not so first class park with many long termers. Many with no insurance. Sad.

Did Nationwide declare your Airstream a total loss?
