In the shop or in storage is all the same— you're not using it— so unless you can show that you DID have an obligation to go camping, and that you DID rent a replacement RV while your was in the shop, I don't think you have any basis for a claim. And then all you COULD claim was the actual rental cost.
Not true, consequential damages are legitimate and one can claim every weekend as potential use until your AS is fixed. If you did rent another camper, that cost would be in addition, double in other words. What you settle for is another consideration, but damages to your ability to camp in your own rig, is certainly on the table for negotiations, including the full number of days unavailable for you to go camping.
