Greetings to all:
I have a 1969 Airstream, 25' Land Yacht that recently received hail damage to the roof. When my State Farm insurance appraisor looked at the damage, he said it was a total loss and they offered me a "take it or leave it" settlement of $1,882... and I can keep the trailer. They based this offer on a (prior to the accident) market value of $3,500 that they obtained from Windish RV of Denver, Colorado...who has never seen the unit.
I paid $7,000 for the unit 5 years ago and have since added new flooring, new heater, new air conditioner and replaced all of the plumbing . The interior has been miticulously cared for and the exterior is in great condition also; with the exception of the small dents that now adorn the roof. I'm pretty sure the unit's market value was worth at least $6,000 or more prior to the damage but I'm not an expert in such matters and in no position to speak with any authority.
The insurance agent said she would reconsider their offer if I can substan-tiate a higher value. So, I'm searching for one or more persons who are creditable experts and knowledgeable concerning what the market value of my Airstream was prior to sustaining the hail damage.
If you can assist me, or know of someone who might be able to help me, please contact me at my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your assistance,
