So glad everybody is ok. At least it was at the end of your trip and you weren't stranded somewhere far from home. Not that that's much consolation

Get a repair estimate from Scamp. If it isn't prohibitive, and if insurance totals it out, ask if you can keep it... then get it repaired. Then get a salvage title. Just a thought.

Be SURE to have the hitch receiver inspected on your tug! This may have torn the steel on the underside. I had this happen to my Mountaineer in a very mild rear-end collision that left almost no visible damage on the trailer! You want to catch this now so insurance can cover repairs if necessary. In my case, I did not find out until later, but I had a good welder strengthen the receiver mounts for a couple hundred dollars.

Living 1051 miles from the Scamp factory them fixing was not an option. Kent and Micah the owners at Scamp wrote the estimate for our insurance company. Needing a new shell top and bottom plus frame, plus broken oak cabinets a bit to much to fix. Oh the car and hitch were checked and all is good with that. Being upset and mad at this situation I want a new Scamp To start fresh again.

Ken, I hope you are looking forward to your brand new Scamp and will have it soon. What a shame and a lot of trouble but perhaps you will like the next one even better.

Cathi. We are not ordering our new Scamp till late winter. I am not traveling to Backus with snow on the ground. If we ordered now it would be late Oct. for pickup. This will give us time to think of any changes we might make. Also no check yet.

You definitely want the check in hand first, yes. So that is very unfortunate that you will be without a trailer for quite a while. On the other hand, I guess you can buy anything you want if you should be interested in a different model or trailer.
