Not wanting to get my blood pressure up, I'll give you the ultra Readers Digest version of events. The kid that ran over me had virtually no insurance, and my health insurance company paid most of the bills. The little insurance money he had, and my auto insurance, went into a bank account my attorney set up for the purpose. My health insurance company found out about this, and immediately filed a lien against it, for something called subrogation. My attorney is still fighting this, but it is looking more and more like the health insurance company will take every penny from me, and leave me on the hook for the copays and deductibles for almost a quarter of a million $$. We lost the house, the car got reposessed, and we were left with the choice of selling our Airstream, and moving into an apartment for a few months until that money ran out, or moving into the Airstream we wound up getting for the purpose.
I sold my toy train collection to pay for Bertha, and sold Goliath (our Overlander) to pay for rehab on Bertha. Several vendors that are also forums members have helped us out with parts to get Bertha livable. I've not mentioned any vendors by name, because I don't want to put the vendors that couldn't help on the spot. The same reason I haven't mentioned any forums members that have helped us financially, the ones that could, did, and they know their help was appreciated.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
