Oh boy.. that post just jumped out there and grabbed on didnt it..
Hopefully the insurance will come through and make it right. Would be a shame to total a nice rig like that and forevermore have the racing stripe....

They said I may have pulled the interior ribbing away from the frame and he won't know until he rips off the side panel. Just the side panel is over $1100. It honestly doesn't look very deep.

I guarantee that the main bows are not pulled away from the floor channel.

I think it adds character and the world could use a little more character nowadays!

When we brought the moho home from Maryland, we pulled in to a campground for the night. The campground roads were icy and there was a young boy trying to move his lawn mower and trailer out of the road. It wouldn't budge. Too heavy to push, believe me, we tried! So we pulled through a campsite (it was icy too) and drug a very heavy picnic table with us. So...the moho has a racing stripe now. I just keep telling myself that it adds character!

OUCH! That hurts to look at. But it happens. I had a Lance cabover and backed into the same gutter overhang twice in my own driveway.

There's a picture somewhere here of the garden wall I hit. Not bad for driving a bus though.
