Brad, good one! I had to re-read that before I understood...I first assumed that Clancy Boy would bring firewood (like at the Can Opener).

I would be afraid that if Alan brought anything from that tree, it would be the size of toothpicks by the time he got done with it.

And Alan, I do hope that Plan B can be determined and accomplished.

Trailer Damage

Wow Allen. Sorry to hear about your trailer. The weather can take your trailer but your memories will always be there.

If anyone knows of a 25-27 for sale...we may downsize a bit. Insurance took photos this morning, we will see what they have to say. The roof on my house is already set to be repaired.

I'm amazed at the glass that did not break.


Borrow something and still come.
Wonder if insurance would let you rent something until replaced?

Alan, I'll comb the woods. I know Richard T has a lot full. If you find anything in this neck of the woods, I'll be happpy to investigate for you. I'd also be more than willing to loan you something for Springstream if I had ANYTHING finished. I'm terribly sorry for your misfortune, and again if theres anyway I or my folks can help out...we will!

Alan, I know you just want to cry every time you see your Sovereign or photos of it. You spent so much time on the interior alone. Scrubbing all the nicotine off of the walls and stripping the paint off the cabinetry and applying the "aluminum" wall covering and just recently having the gaucho re-upholstered (plus a lot of other things I can't remember at the moment). You just can't put a price tag on all that sweat equity. Well, the insurance company can, but it will never be what it's worth to you.

Take someone up on the offer to borrow an Airstream/Argosy for the Springstream and take your time on finding a replacement...the right one will come to you without you having to rush into the first one that comes along just to have one for this rally. Everyone will understand and we all sympathize.

I am unable to upload pictures anymore, so it was a bit of a shocker to see the "treestream here when I opened the page, opf course not as shocking as seeing the real thing. The other side has a large hole in tyhe roof and side segment, and amazingly that glass is not broken either...the window bent but did not break, and the tambour still works on the smashed cabinetry. Unreal!
If I can get to it under the 4 foot ceiling ( good thing I am somewhat height challenged) I will have to pull out the brand new Intellipower I just put in a month ago.
Yesterday we were cleaning the trailer out and I paused to look at all the things I have redone, fixed, or upgraded. Yikes.
I am sure glad I enjoyed doing it when it was in progress.
State Farm took photos yesterday, and we await some word from them. they already agreed to the house roof repairs.
Springstream is also part of my spring break week, actually it is my Spring Break! So we will see how it goes over the next three weeks or so.

Alan,
I've had State Farm for vehicles since '72 or '73 and have them covering 5 vehicles, my trailer and my house. When I had my brake/drum/tire/wheelwell disaster last October, they covered everything after the $500 deductible except the tire which I told them to forget because they all had to be replaced this April anyway. I got my estimate from the Airstream factory through plenty of pictures, took it and the repair bill for new brake drum assembly/labor into my agent. He sent it in and they sent out a guy to take pictures. I received a check not long after that.

I had a good conversation with the adjuster today, who said he saw the photos they took, looked at NADA guide and realized that was not going to work, so asked if I would fax in the ads I have been downloading. This might turn out ok.
Meanwhile it has been fun scouring the ads for a new-to-us-stream.

Alan,
I realized after a short time into Airstreaming that there should be a value difference between an Airstream with all original equipment and one that has had many of the appliances replaced. Obviously this may not include some of the vintage items in trailers such as the refrigerators. Since all appliances in my '86 had been replace except for the oven, I felt it was an exceptional deal for me and should be worth more if something were to happen. I have kept all receipts for items replaced or improved should I ever need it.

Ouch! What a bummer Alan. I hope this all works out for you. I guess you have to be careful what you wish for.

You sold the motorhome, bought the trailer, had to upgrade your tow vehicle..... now you have to begin again.

Just glad no one was hurt in the event.

Where did the tree hit the house? Is the Porche safe??

I have an inside track here folks, having visited Alan at home a while back.

Yes it hit the house, above the Porsche garage, but the airstream had enough in it to hold up the tree so the roof damage was minimal. The tree also missed my sons suv by two feet.
I faxed 12 pages to the adjuster today , should know something by early in the week.
Found a few interesting trailers too , after searching the net.....
