maybe hail is not so bad afterall...

Insurance totalled the A/S. After buying it back for salvage and figuring in the P&I for the last 5 years plus my downpayment at purchase, I'll have spent ~$24k for my coach...free and clear title now!

In future terms, I would have spent ~$49k had I gone the full 180 months on financing.

Just have to repair the a/c cover (or a new one is $211) and let the Texas heat soften the "beauty marks".

Time to have a "burn the mortgage" celebration

Judy and Bob, In frame #14, Are you saying that those dents in the top pictures are now gone? I have a dent in the Argosy. Right rear segment, not the end cap, from a plank that was leaning against the garage and toppled into the old Argosy. Maybe I'll wait and see. George.

I hate to disappoint you, George, but the "Sun removal" doesn't work on the steel end caps of the Argosy. The good news is, you can knock the worst of the dent out, and use body filler to smooth things over, and paint the area.

That's true Terry, Luckily it's not in the end cap. We'll see what happens. There's no real crease in the dent. I may try a body man's suction cup. The crappy part is that it coresponds to the where the shower is inside the trailer, so getting to it from inside is a major job. George.

Congratulations on a paid in full coach. Now you can use the payment money to travel and go camp more.

my question is : Do you now have a salvage title and how will that effect the sale price in the future? I believe that my MH was at Bizmark in the hailstorm. I have a salvage title , but it was the MH that we wanted and it was in good condition so we bought it. The front endcap has lots of dimples remaining.

When I look up at her dimples and in the mirrow at my wrinkles, I know that she and I are survivors and LIFE IS GOOD. Lets go camping.

salvage title?

I asked that exact question when given the option to buy back...Texas does not require the title to reflect salvage when due to a hail storm, so an absolutely clear title...and some gas money to boot!

hail repair on TV - update

Just got the truck back from a PDR outfit in The Colony...all I can say is it must be magic! There is not even the hint that it ever had a mark on it and I was mucho suspicious about this technique when I dropped it off! I would love to see just exactly how they do this.
Strangely, there aren't even any scratches or signs of anything ever happening under the hood, doors, etc...(now I have a plausible explanation for Extra Terrestrials).

Moreover, it pays to shop around and find an outfit that will do good work without having to pay a penny in deductible ($1000 in my case and they even paid for a rental for 9 days! and no, I didn't have rental coverage).

Marc
