Call your insurance adjuster and have them come look at it, before you do anything.

Relax. It's an accident. That's why we have insurance. It can be fixed and it will be like new when it's done.

I know exactly how you feel.....my patch was 17' long and 18" wide. It looked like but it got us through the summer. A 100$ easy up will work for an awning and some shade.
X2 patch it up get a full fix later. However this is the time to put on a sprayed on roof. There are a few companies that do it. I think Rino Liner is one of them. What is nice about them is the Zero Required Maintenance. There is no caulking when they're done. Co worker did it and absolutely loves it.

I'm with Ray on this one. Wouldn't surprise me if the insurance company wanted to total it.

Good Luck.....

I patched the roof and sealed with lap sealant, plugged the holes, called the insurance adjuster and went camping. The roof is holding up just fine but not having an awning is worse than I thought. I may see about getting the awning fixed first and having the roof repaired over winter. The insurance adjuster sounded like he was on board with this as well. Do you all think there was any other damage internally to the finerglass side that may not be obvious to an untrained eye? If not, the awning may be something i can do. The awning lolks to be about 2,000 from Carefree of Colorado.

Happened to a friend of mine driving to his campsite and the corner of his trailer got caught on a gate ripped the whole back of his trailer off. The washroom was totally exposed all you could see was the toilet . He didn't let it ruin his camping , he just backed up closer to the bushes to give himself more privacy. We still laugh about it. Part of life and spit happens .

Theawning and roof will both need completely replaced however. Not to mention, my insurance provider will more than likely dump me after this one.
Since you have insurance and are going to get a new roof, I strongly suggest you look at RVRoof | Home of the original sprayed RV Roof. It won't be much if any more than a new rubber roof and a whole lot better product. No caulking EVER and a lifetime no leak guarantee. I did mine six months ago after my 5 1/2 year old rubber roof membrane was failing and will never ever go back to a "leak waiting to happen" rubber roof.

We all make mistakes. Don't sweat it. I tried driving my minivan into my garage with 2 mountain bikes on it. Damage our siding, the bikes, the bike rack, and the van when one of the bikes came tumbling down.

Did a similar thing at a rental company when returning a moving truck . Took out the top of the truck as well as causing a lot of damage to the covering where the gas pumps were . Wasn't my fault though as I was advised to drive the truck over to the gas pump for a fill. Manager was peeved at the employee as the roof was just repaired a week prior for the same reason.

Update:

The roof patch is holding up fine. The insurance adjuster estimated the damages close to $9,000. Newroof, new awning, paint, and miscelanious pieces. I'm scheduled to take it to the dealer in september.
