An American Dream is not just a motorhome
It's disgusting, shouldn't be this way,but if they want to play this little game we are fully prepared, equipped and "armed" to go the distance.

So glad Lisa, that the only damage was to 'stuff'; and sounds like you are doing well on the recovery process-blowing a front tire is my worst nightmare as we are owners of a new to us 40' Beaver w/tag axle. My suggestion, and I maybe late to the discussion here, is to add 'agreed value' to your insurance on your next rig. Ours is insured for 'agreed value' at our purchase price, so in case of a total loss, we would recover our investment. Best to you when shopping for another rig!

Hopefully there will be no "next time"! I guarantee we'll be doing that though, great suggestion. Luckily our "claim guy " came though for us, only took 3 different comp appraisals, which by the way were so messed up it was ridiculous! The 3rd party adjusters have absolutely no clue about motorhomes. In the end they didn't use any of the comps and we were made whole. Now for the really hard part... Finding another American.

Wow you guys work fast . Some of us take that long to find a place to buy tires or a place to change the oil. Can't wait to see the new baby pics.
