Byron, I've been out of touch (no signal) and just found out about your problems. We're glad to hear that you & your trailer are going to be fine.

I went to a boat repair shop. The first thing they said "We know Scamps, we've worked on few". Their approach was more what I expected. We'll see how they is a couple weeks or so.

They did have a lot of boats they were working on along with a few RVs including a big class A.

Thanks Dave & Paula.
Maybe we'll back your way sometime in the not too distant future. The plan right now is New Orleans for Christmas and work back home in 3 to 4 months.

On Thursday morning (early morning) it felt like I was having a pretty strong Pleurisy attack. Since it's chest pains it's always a good idea to get it checked. So off to ER we go. After several tests EKG, X-Ray, Blood tests, there was no indication of any heart involvement. I figured they about to release and I was off. But, no this ER Quack was confident I was having a hart attack. I told him I'd been through this more than once, but he wanted more and more expensive tests done. I said NO. Signed a paper and left.
Our plan had been to head to UTAH and their National Parks, Off we go, figuring the Pleurisy would run its course and everything would be good. Spent the night in a rest area just inside Idaho. Headed across the state in morning. Almost to Mountain Home stopped for breakfast. Felt like I was getting better. After breakfast we out there was a bigger travel trailer parked really close to me. Anne says somebody hits us. (Pictures below) It appears this guy pulled in the wrong direction and pulled out tried to make that greater than 90 turn and hit my trailer with his. Worse yet he had is steps out. I didn't feel so good any more.
After getting as much information out of him as I could we headed back home.
Tuesday morning I still not feeling good so I called my doctor's office, the only help they could give was back to ER. Same tests as before, however this time "heart isn't involved". That's more like it. Pneumonia was diagnosis oh oh. Anne had to deal with insurance companies for trailer while I tried to get better. Two days later they let me out with a couple new meds. Looks like UTAH is going to have to wait a while. Maybe next year.


Looks like that the insurance adjusted is on his way to look at the trailer. Maybe soon we'll be through with the whole ordeal.
I used to have such attacks while in college many years ago. Felt like a heart attack! Have not had such attacks now in over 35 years. They were awful to say the least. Hope your Scamp gets fixed like new.

UPDATE

As of today the trailer is fixed and the other guys insurance paid for it to be fixed.
My recovery is going a bit slower, but seem to be improving. Still don't have as much energy as I think I should.
Here's a picture of after the repairs were done.
As it turns out I ended up taking my own advice and went to a boat repair shop. Never did get a quote for the RV repair shop. So here it is looking good again.

Yes I am. Right after the crash I was put in the hospital with pneumonia. I still don't have any energy. Putting the trailer away after getting it fixed wore me out.

Hi,
It's stories like yours about health that helped make up my mind to let Paul get a project trailer and take a little risk -- we're between health issues for the moment...and we never know when new ones will come, but your courage and persistence is an inspiration--and an incentive to get up and get going while we can.
