If they do fix Susie, I would suggest that you consider trading her for a new home the day you get her back. Consider what others have said about hidden damages. You will probably find that she looks good, but she will never be the same. Compartment doors will leak, mysterious rattles will suddenly appear, you'll find that the front tires wear excessively...something or lots of things will happen.

September? That's 3.5 - 4 months! There is no reason your life should be disrupted because of this idiot. Get a good lawyer, fast. Do NOT trust your insurance company to fight for your rights. It costs them money to do so. ALL insurance companies are about profit, not customers.

I would fight for a replacement coach now. Don't let sentimentality cause you to accept less than the law allows. There is another beautiful coach out there waiting to take you where you want to be. To lose the whole summer is simply inexcusible.

Have you talked to the sales people at Lazy days about trading in your coach as is, and not having to wait several months?
They know that you have coverage and it will be fixed, and they are the ones doing it.

Something to think about and I believe you will have a great selection to choose from.

Whether or not the criminal pays for all your expenses, how will he compensate you for a lost summer that can never be enjoyed? Time is priceless to a retiree. I agree with those who advocate for a new coach. Please think about it.

It is very fortunate you were in your RV and therefore had some protection. These guys are out there, we know from experience.

Sorry this had to happen to you and hope you get it all repaired to the way it was. I would also recommend maybe to trade for a new one as you don't realy know what else will be wrong.

Good Luck and hope you get back to the RV lifestyle soom.

All of that, plus you have also lost a BIG portion of resale value.

Don't know what the legal position is right now, but find out who held title to the car. If it was the kids parents, their assets can also be attached for any damages over the insurance amount.

My niece was hit by someone going through a red light. My sister was her passenger. The guys insurance had a $50,000 limit. Medical expenses and lost wages were pretty high, so instead of one claim for the accident, the lawyer filed one claim for niece, one for sister so they could EACH get the $50,000 limit.

Your costs on this are going to be extreme. Have your lawyer find out his policy limits. You might want to consider seperate claims in order to double that limit.
