U go GIRL! I believe U made the correct desision. AAA will wait till U scream and I'm glad U didnt wait on them. Their job is not to payout if they don't have too.
I do also believe U have chosen to correct man for the job.
Best of Luck to U
Roger

Finally

Hello to all of you who took time to send me such positive posts. It was so encouraging to receive a notice saying someone had posted a reply.

Well, Andy came through and my AS is going to be repaired instead of totalled. The repair estimate is $14,588.19. That is an awful lot to spend on a 1995 but it is my only home so thank goodness Andy and the adjuster came to a meeting of the minds and she is going to be repaired.

It was good to have someone fight my battle for me. I am looking forward to getting her back and settling back into a semi-normal life. Whatever that is!!!

Kathy, I may be over your way this fall. Hopefully you will be able to see what Inland RV is done for me.

That is great Sue! Few dealers other than Andy would know how to deal with both the claims and repair sides of such complex problems. I thank Janet, Craig and Andy for getting you to a solution ASAP.

Now the human side: You'll be between 'residences' for how long? When will your Airstream be ready to roll?

I am glad that the repairs are working out for you. Keep us posted on how it goes and know that we are thinking of you on this side of the country.

Also, let us know when you'll be back this way. Maybe we can schedule the fall rally around when you will be here. It will be good to see you again.

Kudos to Andy for taking care of travelinsue.

Too often we find ourselves at the mercy of the insurance companies and their adjusters. It is great to know that there are people like Andy out there who will do the right thing for the customer.

Thanks Andy.

Barry

Home away from home

Well Bob, you asked about my living arrangements while Mariposa is being repaired. Andy said it would be about 10 working days.........so my abode is an old park model here in the RV park in Indio. As you have heard, it never rains in southern CA........that is not true........I moved into this trailer Saturday and of course it started raining Sunday and rained Sunday night. This thing leaked like a sieve. I had so many pots and pans sitting around it was hard to move around. I thought, ok Sue, you can handle this.........but when I heard a drip in the bedroom and headed back there it was dripping on the bed. That did it, I put a pan on the bed and headed to the nearest motel which was not one of the high dollar ones in this area but I felt it would be ok for one night. Well, I had to stand in line with a few questionable gals, waiting for a room for one night. laughing....not a good scene. Then the next night I had to repeat the whole thing because it continued to rain. And on top of that I had to work that day and while I was at work another leak showed up in the bathroom and soaked my only roll of toilet paper..............sigh. Life do get tedious. But no rain in the forecast, I think, for a while. They call it liquid sunshine.
Bob you asked and you got an answer. I hope this passes the moderators ok.

Well travelinsue, at least it would be easy to take a shower in that unit. Anywhere you stand you have that opportunity. Where I live we get a lot of liquid sunshine, and liquid snow remover, and liquid pretty much everything this time of year. Here, in the winter, when it rains it's warm so we don't mind it too much.

I know about the not quite up to par motel thing. A time or two not having reservations and showing up in a town where there's a big event going on we've had to stay in places where you need to shower somewhere else because even the washroom was questionable as to when it was last cleaned. Eeeuuuwww.

Looking forward to seeing your input when your trailer is back.

Barry

Sue, in support I would send along the same chagrined live-and-learn partial smile you must be capable of delivering by now. And some karma too. It looks like you're going to make it!

Impressive, Andy. The other driver lost an opportunity. How'd they miss the wing window?
