Wow.. Is insurance giving you any hassles so far? Definitely looks like there's some serious work ahead.

So far it is just jumping through the normal hoops. It will be going to the local RV repair shop on Wednesday to work up an estimate then we will see how they are going to behave.

that is seriously scary! It looks as if it hit the tree first could you imagine what a direct hit would do? that is amazing I hope all are well and you can get back on the road quickly and without going broke.
Have a good one
