Steve,
I'd be interested to hear what your insurance company says. When I got our trailer's insurance I asked about all sorts of hazards because of where we leave the trailer: trees, fire, etc. Can't remember if I asked about snow. But the insurance agent kept saying "yes" to everything. Mind you, what they say when they are SELLING is a lot different than what they say when you are CLAIMING

Good luck,
Phil

Oh Steve, this makes me sad. You've gotten some great advice and I bet you'll fix 'er up so it's totally acceptable to you.

Everytime someone mentions snow loads and precautions and a few jump in and say "I don't do anything and have never had a problem," I cringe. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Sorry it happened to you...

If your insurance company will pay for it I agree with the others that taking it to Trillium in Calgary for repair as you are so close to them or getting a referral directly from them as to were to take it would be my first choose.

Well so far it's looking good with insurance, spoke with a claims adjuster and someone is going to stop by in the next day or two. Here's hoping...

You may want to start going through the Fiberglass-RV-4Sale.com site and printing off like trailers for sale and sold to present to who the insurance company sends to look at the trailer - including pictures. Best of course if you have ads for your area due to cost differences in the different areas. You may have to prove thats its worth more than they think its is - i.e. they may try and write it off as the damage to repair is more than what *they* think the trailer is worth.

If I am not mistaken that was a member here Peter Knowles - last seen here in 09. Be cool if he updated us on how it went.

Thanks for making the connection Carol. I often quote him on clarifying the door sag issue on the boler type trailers. Here's one of his websites with the picture of a boler on it:
The Riverport Rovers | The Wild Rovers
I sent a message to him there asking for an update.
and his user profile:

Also noted he has some other projects on the go:

Well, appraiser says to repair it, it will be 3-4 thousand and it's not worth it, so they offered me 2500 after my deductible. then I could buy it back for about 300.

Why is it that I fear contacting insurance companies? I always feel like they are out to screw you - from high rates to low payouts when you need them. It shouldn't be like that. Why offer me 2500 when you know what I paid for it just 12 months ago?

Anyhow, called around myself and found a company in Airdrie that will fix it for 2100. So it's there now, should be done in a couple weeks, and adjuster agreed to pay for it. All together I'm out my deductible but should get it back looking as new. So in the end insurance was there and is doing what it's supposed to, however I just squeaked in.
