I can't remember what year your's is. Mine is covered on RJ Dial's site for values since it's vintage. State Farm also told me to keep receipts for all updates and improvements and keep an extensive log of photos to support condition. I'd also pull some classifieds off the web to show asking prices of similar coaches of your year. Anything to support your case.

Alan,

I am so sorry to see hear this happended. I was really looking forward to meeting you after you reached out to me to come to the rally.

I was really worried this morning when the storm whipped through Dunwoody. I have seen storms like this (actually at sea) but that didn't lessen the awe. The first thing I thought of was to turn on the TV and round up the kids. A second thought was my precious in the driveway. It was a very severe front.

Just as an aside I lost a '78 International to a Pecan tree down near Statesboro and Geico treated me fairly. I would start looking for comps and support any major improvements with receipts. When looking for comps I would use EBAY to scout out similar vintage airstreams and then sign up to "watch this item." That way you will get a recording of the final sales price.

Once again so sorry and I hope you are able to rebound fully. Best Wishes, Chris

That is so sad Alan! And after all the work you put into it.
Good thing you weren't in it at the time.
Best of luck settling up with insurance.
That must have been really wicked weather. And I'm complaining about snow and more snow.
Al

Alan, that's awful. And I agree with Sugarfoot, thank goodness no one was hurt. Hopefully the house didn't suffer as much damage.

Hopefully you can work out a way to come to Springstream despite your trailer being totalled (I assume it will be totalled).

Hopefully, an estimator with some experience in this area can be assigned to your case. Dealing with adjusters can run the gamut from tear-your-hair-out frustration to grateful appreciation. Good luck with that.

I understand how you feel about having your own Airstream to stay in. Although if my Sovereign is still available, you are most welcome to use her. She would welcome the company.

Can’t imagine anything in this area being difficult to back into.
Just pick a site before they are all gone.
If you do have any problems; Blanche will be glad to help with backing in.
She has the “road guide” thing down to an art.
“Come on, come on, a little farther…. whoa! whoa! stop!... oh gee… look what you did.”

I said art not science.

Funny, sad and so true.
Please tell me 'before' I hit something, not after.
I took out the rear corner of a old mobile home with spotters on each coner...went back to look, was 4' of damage before I heard a 'Stop!'

Alan-- SOO very sorry to read of the damage to your Airstream. I am glad your family is OK. Our possessions, although important to us, can be replaced. Our lives, cannot.

Thanks all for your sympathies, only we vintage trailer types can appreciate the loss. We are somewhat excited about the prospects for a future case of aluminitus though.

Ouch, Alan - sorry to see that.

We had a hail storm 2 Sundays ago - some were golfball size and slightly larger. These spring storms this year seem to be one after another.

Happy Hunting for a new one and good luck with the insurance claim.

Mike

Thanks for the gracious help...........Thought I might get some advice on sight selection because on the map the turns into the sights I listed are pretty much right angles..............Was wondering if perhaps someone might know if there were trees, boulders, or if it is pretty much an open area.

I appreciate a joke and joviality as much as the next person........Seems making the other guy the butt of the joke is perhaps the driving spirit..............Thanks Folks...........God Bless..........Dennis

Alan, our condolences! Terrible, although fortunate that no one was hurt.

We'll assume you'll come up with a plan B before Springstream. And I guess we know who's bringing the firewood...
