Keep us posted as to the progress. We are interested and we do care.
In most (all?) states "no fault" only applies to medical/injuries, not damage to the vehicle. Also, you can minimize the hassle with the other insurance company if you have collision coverage and work through your own insurance (who now have incentive to go after the other company).

You are correct, my mistake. I knew that but somehow my typing fingers didn't.

That is why you need uninsured / under insured insurance coverage on your policy.

Our 41ft Dutchstar DP was hit and damaged in a traffic accident on Saturday around 5:30 PM. The DW was driving and did a great job of keeping control of our rv and making sure that no additional vehicles were hit and damaged. The other driver was completely at fault and he put a lot of lives in danger with the bonehead and ignorant driving decisions that he made yesterday. An off duty CHP officer and his wife witnessed the accident, they were nice enough to pull over and wait for the CHP to respond so that they could give him a report. The DP took a good beating, the damage starts on the front right corner near the headlight and runs down along the right side through to and including the passenger side kitchen slide. I have pics but I can't seem to get them to load up on this site today. The DW is a very good driver and there is nothing she could have done to avoid this idiot, she is down and feels horrible about the accident.

We have contacted the insurance company regarding starting the process to have the unit repaired and we have a few questions for you.

1. Paint and repair locations that you recommend in Southern California.

2. Concerns and things to look out for with RV collision repairs.

3. Slide affected was kitchen slide, any xtra things to have checked out.

4. Any info or suggestions on things to do or be aware of would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help, don't know how long repairs will take but we hope to see you on the road soon.
Try benchmark rv in sun valley, ca or mc bride rv service in chino, ca

Sorry to hear about your accident but real happy to hear that you are OK
