Same thing happened with State Farm with my 71, which really surprised me. My 71 has cosmetic damage and I still use it, but State Farm totaled it.. I didn't ask any questions when State Farm never asked for the title and t dropped my insurance when I got the pay out because I was not sure if I put in another future claim if I would be committing fraud. State Farm also never sent out an adjuster just accepted photos and a repair estimate from an Airstream dealer based on the photos.

Funny thing is it counts as an accident with other insurance companies (Progressive) but not State Farm. When I got my 93 I tried to insure it with State Farm and they told me they don't insure vintage trailers period. I have my 93 insured with Progressive.

I have a feeling the State Farm underwriters screwed up.

If State Farm is listening, just kidding.

Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

It shouldn't impact your ability to drive it at all. you may be able to use a slide hammer on it, or fill the whole thing with bondo and paint it.
Myth busters on television aired a segment about dimples on a car and found that it did get better fuel mileage.

I deal with insurance companies for work. Here's something to consider. While you have found a company that is willing to insure the trailer if you buy it back, they will not cover you for hail damage in the future. They will call it preexisting and you will be on your own. Now if it burns down or you get hit they will cover that. Just not for another hail storm.
