I drive by CW about once a week on I 575, the water was deep, the police had the access road to cw blocked off last week,couldnt get in to look. The windows and doors on the units were open ,why if water only up to the wheels? If anyone wants me to look let me know, BUT Im a new member not a lot of experience.

Good luck to you!

I'm too far away to take any advantage, plus already bought an As recently, but I admire your initiative to be willing to at least investigate and coordinate this initiative.

Hope it works out for a few lucky folks. I;m sure you will cover all the bases.


Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Any inspector volunteers out there?

I have been told on-site inspection is okay. Contact Carter Spence of Callan Salvage 901-351-3301. He is on site at the Camping World in Woodstock, GA (Atlanta area). These trailers will be sold with a salvage title. I am processing information from the Georgia Dept. of Revenue for tmpy and permanent licensing and titling. Anyone interested in "seeing" these trailers and reporting to the forum would be welcome-thank you in advance. The bid closing date is currently set at Wed 1pm EDT, 14 Oct, 2009. Not much time.

Again, I may be chasing my tail on this venture, but if you think it has some worth to you, join in.
Bill

Airstream interiors and water don't mix! ha! Last time i drove down 575, they had all the airstreams lined up with the windows open. They're junk! If you REALLY want to do a floor replacement, why not find a classic one? :-D

Folks, as was mentioned, I had a unit on the lot at the Woodstock GA Camping World. The entire lot (aka their entire inventory) was underwater. My insurance adjuster said the water reached within a foot and a half of the roof of the A/S. From personal observation, all the units I saw upon casual observation were under AT LEAST 3-4 feet of water depending upon where the unit was on the lot. (The lot sloped downwards towards the creek.)

I've posted a couple of pics in the other thread if you want to see what the damage looks like.

I can assure you I was on site within a day of the water receding, it was MUCH more than a foot or two of water.

I can also assure you the units had all kinds of water/sewage/fuel/contaminants inside the units.

C/W is (was?) the only authorized dealer as Sagon did indeed go out of business.

If anyone would like local info, let me know as I've been on the Camping World lot many times before and after the flood.

And I'm not too impressed with their customer service as they want to bill me for work that they supposedly did work on my A/S before the flood (it was in for warranty work and PM) and they refuse any responsibility for insurance.

Caveat emptor folks.

Just my two cents, but we don't do CW anymore. I watched one of their "techs" troubleshoot a wiring problem on a new coach; he did not know how to operate the volt-ohm meter.

I'd be interested in looking at one of these guys. I have a family member that is going through Georgia in a few weeks and might be able to stop by and inspect + take pictures.

Here's a few I've already taken....Note the flood line / debris in the fences.

I hope this helps.

Well I am back from my trip to Woodstock and checking out the airstreams. I just walked in the door and wanted to give a quick overview of the trailers. They were anywhere from 50% to 65% full of water. I spoke to one person who said the water receded in about 12 to 14 hours. I am going to post some pic of the damage sometime today. But for right now I am just going to enjoy NOT being in my truck.
