Last night a motorhome didn't set their parking brake and it rolled down the hill into my side driveway along my house striking my beloved 96 Bigfoot
17.5. The front corner is smashed in and the front cabinetry is dislodged, interior panels broken/torn, front window cover won't open, etc. It appears the fiberglass shell moved inward and bounced back, but the force dislodged everything in the front.
Luckily, the homeless person living in the motorhome has insurance, but I don't since I couldn't find an insurance company that would provide adequate coverage. They valued it based on the NADA and would pay out $3,500, and I paid $9,000 for it.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a repair shop in the Portland, Oregon area that I could take the trailer in for estimates and/or repair, if it is repairable? Any ideas on how to negotiate the true value with the motorhome's insurance carrier (Geico)?
By the way, the motorhome bounced off the Bigfoot
, rolled over down a slope, and was hauled off in pieces, completely destroyed. Although my trailer sustained damage, I believe they are stout.
