Yikes!

That sure puts our little hail damage claim in to perspective.

Glad to know that no one was physically injured, although I'm sure the mental anguish was painful enough.

Not to Be and Airstream Ghoul, but...

JBK,
Like Zep, I would like to know if this is now a "Donor Stream." If so, I would like to purchase the windows if we can confirm condition and opener configuration.

Sorry about the unfortunate mishap.

Ken

She is gone. I didn't even know about this forum last fall and just let the ins. co. take her. I could check to see where they took her, but I doubt it would do any good. I wish I had known better, I would have kept it for parts, although there wasn't much left. That oak hit square and wiped it out inside and out. I thought about keeping it, but I think the frame and some windows was all there would be that was useable. Sorry.
I will be getting my In-law's 345 this fall. Getting excited by this forum...

JB

Now if that happened to my '57 FC I would definitely consider using the rear emergency escape window feature!

AZ,
Do you have any more info on that trailer?
I posted that pic in the "stuck and troubled" photo section on the tractor forum. Several folks wanted to know more about it.
TIA
Jerry

The real bummer was that my 1978 Midas P.O.S. motorslum was parked about 50 feet away. Why couldn't they have knocked a tree over that thing?

I'll be buying my inlaws 345 this fall (poor health). The two rounded rear sections have been dented. Is this tough and or expensive to replace?
I apologize if this is a repeat, but this forum is so darned deep, I could spend a month looking in the archives (which would also be fun...).
Thanks in advance.

JB

I think it happened last year in Florida. Here are two other pictures that I saved.
