I was having the bearings repacked, suspension lubed and the brakes checked at a local trailer service company. While they were moving the 5er with a forklift , somehow it "popped" off the fork tine and dropped.
When it hit the ground the landing gear spring bolts sheared off and the rig dropped about 20 inches more.
During the fall the fork tine punctured the front cap.
The company says they will be taking care of the damage and my question is
Should I have them replace the landing gear and get the frame inspected for any possible damage? The landing gear likely is not built to withstand that much impact and compromised even if it works now. If the frame has been damaged it would become a really big deal. The fiberglass front cap is the least of my worries as a good body shop can repair and repaint to look like new and it also does not impact the structure and operation of the rig.
I would appreciate some expert advice. I do believe I will be filing a claim with my insurance company.
