If it were as easy as that I don't believe I would've found myself here. But thanks for your input.

Hi B.O.

With what should the OP buy a new one with? They will have depreciated the value.

I don't know about your insurance, but I can assure you my insurance does not cover damage from rain or weather unless there is sudden impact that causes it.

That would include something hitting it, or it hitting something, and from there, water enters.

If you successfully manage to claim this, you are a very lucky man.

I know how you feel but, IMHO it didn’t go from a little bubble to trash that quick… the damage may have been hidden but was already there, and would have been exposed during the repair anyway…
How I don’t know with the care you say it got…

Maybe you should be glad it happen while the insurance is in the paying mood and they misjudged the damage… otherwise they might have taken the position it was a lack of maintenance and requiring you to prove it wasn’t…

I can understand how you feel.

RV.net weird. It just posted this without me submitting.

Is the insurance going to give your $20,000? Don't know what the value of your old camper is, but that would go a long way to get a new one. And you will fall in-love with a new one as well.

Run, don't walk from the water damaged unit. I have repaired them, and it is not for the faint of heart. Wait for a bit until you can see past the emotion, then make your next move,

Sorry if it's hard to follow. I don't seem to convey things very well when I'm mad. Just so frustrating to lose something that I really like.
And the deterioration thing, the shop guy said he has never seen one visually turn that quick.
The adjuster said when he was here that he could "obviously" see it was not neglect. I believe the name "anal annie" was used. ?? HAHA

When we arrived at the shop, there was a fella from a different insurance company present. He injected himself into the convo. He said it was a delam from heat shrinkage, as the whole camper shell appeared to have "sucked up" very hard onto the framing causing the new recaulking to fracture when any mvmt or pressure was present, basically anytime it moved. It was noticable all over the camper, ESPECIALLY when it was hooked up to the truck ( increased pressure on the structure.) But who knows what happened. I don't know it all. Just know it hadn't seen the light of day in 3 years, and I know what old musty water smells like, and there was never an indication of water intrusion....I would've immediately fixed it.
