I own a 1975 31' Sovereign
, a little over a week ago a Jeep Cherokee ended up parked in the curb side of the trailer. Sorry no pic. Hitting just aft of the main
door, wiping out the Battery Compartment and denting in the side about 2 1/2" from the plume position. A local trailer repair (Top of the Hill RV in Canby, Or) wouldn't even give me an appraisal for repairs. " I won't even guess at the cost knowing that the insurance company is just going to "total" the trailer. You really need to take to and Airstream Dealer/Repair specialists. You don't want to miss anything. Go to Sutton's RV in Eugene." Called Sutton's, they were glad to help, $14,768.99 later, I had the estimate for the insurance company (Safeco). Faxed the form, and waited to hear from them. Two days later I email Field Specialist ask him to check on the status. "This seems to be a very high estimate."
So now to the question I have, How do you negotiate with the company, without putting your title in jeopardy? I do not want to end up with a salvage title and I want enough money to get the repairs done.
