Appraiser Needed for accident estimate - Geico

We were involved in an accident with our 97 Excella last September - it was totaled. Predictably, we are in a claims war with our insurance - Geico. They claim they have no way to adjust or understand why our Airstream with all the improvements we had made to it would be worth at least if not more than what we purchased it for in 2007. Anyone know of someone who can help? I saw in an older thread that someone recommended "SilverPal" so I PM'd them. Any other suggestions?
Thanks.

Jim Polk is good, the other one that I know of is Wendy at VintageAluminum.com.

Sorry to hear about your Excella.

If you did not advise the insurance company that you want an agreed amoount indorsement you are not going to prevail. Sorr;y but that is the simple truth.

Jim Polk is the man

Jim is an experienced vintage appraiser who knows his Airstreams and, as importantly, the insurance industry.....he helped us get a fair payout when our 69 Overlander was totalled. Think he is Silverpal2....paula
