A pro. 30 years in the woods. Just made a slip with the Harvester. He came right up to the house and told my wife what he did and how sorry he was. Insurance company settled in two weeks. I do miss it though...
You hear it all the time, but this unit was probably a solid "8" in and out.

Oh my. That just makes me sick to see. I'm glad the man was honest and you got your insurance settlement. It doesn't take away all the upset, but it helps some.
We hope that joining our little party will be your first step to a "new to you" Airstream. You'll never lose the memories of the good times you had in the old one, but we all hope you'll find a new one and create some new memories.
Let us all know what your plans are for a "new" unit. New from the factory? Vintage fixer upper? Already restored vintage? We should all keep our eyes open for you and help you in the Quest for Aluminum.
Wow, when they get that crunched, the trailer kinda looks like it it just wrapped in foil, doesn't it?
I'm sorry for your loss. FWIW, I have a friend here in Colorado that lost his trailer after the barn he was storing it in collapsed under record snowfall in 2003. The Airstream was lucky, and was only completely crushed to the half way level. He other vechicles (including a VW Bus he was restoring) were smashed down to the floor level. The roof of the barn hit so hard it simply broke the alloy wheels at the bottom 1/3 on that Bus.

That is so sad,And to think ours is normal sets in the woods during summer months.I hope they atleast replaced the unit for you or atleast came close to a replacement.Sorry for your lost and thank goodness you wasn't there at the time.Since apparently they never even check the area before they started.
