Andy,

Here are the pictures of the inside. It is dented inside the cabniet of the end cap but the phot doesn't show very well because of the wood grain inside the cabinet. The rear window did not shatter and there doesn't seem to be any leaks. There are a couple of ripples in the ceiling just above the bed. I hope you can see from the pictures.

Now the cost to repair is close to $10,000.00, if not more.

Severe structural damage is obvious.

If you wish to repair the trailer, you must take it to a dealer that has the qualifications necessary, "AND" who can go to bat for you with your insurance comany, so that they don't total the trailer.

If you have ceiling damage above the bed, more than likely the roof is damaged as well.

Andy

Not to add insult to injury, but I don't ever have guest's that I think are worth that much money. Sorry for the problems with the AS. I hope you can get it repaired to your satisfaction.

Oh man I am so sorry to see that damage. Andy's estimates are consistent with insurance work I had done on mine 4 years ago which included multiple panels in front, sun shade, and rock guards. Basically similar. That was about 6500 but I had *NO* structural damage just a bunch of small dents. Good luck.

UPDATE - April 25, 2009

UPDATE!!!!!! April 25, 2009.

I just got it back today. the repairs looks good and I'm happy to keep another old Airstream on the road. I went through my insurance and Andy was right about the costs, I am surprised it wasn't written off. While it was in the shop, we had a new fridge, hot water tank, and taps installed. It's better than it ever was since we bought it. Now I have to take it out for a trip. I'll get some pics soon, but my digital camera is dead.

Rod

Well I'm glad that everything worked out for you. If that damage cost about $10,000.00, I can just imagine how much it will cost to repair my 1966 Tradewind. Post pics when you can.

Traveland RV here in Langley, BC. did the work and I'm quite happy. I'm glad she's fixed. While it was oin the shop it received an new fridge and hot water tank, so she's just like new now. Can't wait to take her out and test everything.

Hi, I am curious what type of insurance you have on your trailer? I have mine as a rider on my car insurance and not for a very large amount. I also don't see what year you trailer is... BTW, thanks for sharing your story and I am glad you have your trailer back! Pam

Try Out of Doors Mart in Winston Salem, NC. They did similar work on my '89 Excella. I don't know about the interior, but it would shck me if they charged you over $3,300. I had 1 front curved window; front lower curved panel; top two left rear panels replaced for less than $5,000. Looks like new.
***Best advise: shop around. Just because it says Airstream doesn't mean it is made of gold.
