Colorado Hail Damage Claim


My 1967 Airstream was recently damaged in a hail storm. 14 panels have hail damage. I have comprehensive insurance from Allstate. I have a feeling they will total the vehicle.

I suspect they will try to tell me the camper is worth about 1/3 of the value. I have all my documentation of the restoration and have printed off comparable airstreams that have been for sale. It's going to be on me to prove the value.

Any suggestions on dealing with this issue?

Thank you.

Sorry to hear about the damage to your rig. I remember seeing it in Buena Vista, CO. Very nice.
If they total it try to buy it back and go traveling. It will be a sign of a road warrior.
Did you have it insured for an agreed value?
Good Luck.

man...this is such a bummer!!

It seems a common challenge per many of these discussions to get insurance to cover the value of a vintage....

There is no way that it is not totaled with 14 panels affected...
