pugmom-- I did a little checking on 2013 pricing and found that new 184 bh msrp are listed between 12k & 14500 depending on options. If you paid 14k MSRP less the 30% discount (you should be able to get) you would be at 9800 less the 2600 you have left over you would only owe 7200 ( PLUS ANY TAXES). You may want to consider a new rig. Just my $.02 Larry

The two options are tempting, but to answer Bob Landry's question, the trailer is insurable, but not for physical damage if you do not fix the damage caused by hail and the insurance company will not pay any claims for damage to the trailer in the future.
Personaly I would off load the trailer and find a new one. I realize and understand that you like/love the unit you have. If was my trailer and I had the two options, I would be at a dealer finding a new trailer.
Good Luck and let us know the outcome.

Well, had my little conference call--now have to cuss and discuss with hubby (who flew to Florida today on business)!

I have to admit I'm leaning toward keeping it---why? Cuz ending up only paying $5000 for a 2012 Jayco is pretty tempting. It's going to be parked in a park on the Missouri River 12 months a year (except for the times we decide to go somewhere.) Considering I'm in Nebraska and likely to get hail again or any number of mishaps (tree limbs, kids bikes, baseballs)---the "Dimples" are not all that troubling.

My biggest concern is will I still have my second year of warrenty coverage on the stuff not hail related? I didn't get to camp that much to try everything good. As one poster asked "how would Jayco know"? Cuz of our freakin stupidity and need to be honest---I sent them an email asking--and the email asked for my name, vin number, etc. At this point, I wish I'd called NO ONE! I'm not going to fix it--cause they quoted $6100--I'd end up paying more than I bought the camper for. Although I could just fix the front panel--the side and back are not noticeable.

We spent the weekend looking----in person and on Internet. I did find 2013 Winnebago Minnie pull behind that looks interesting.

Thanks for your help---I keep you posted

Why wouldn't it work like auto insurance? They offered you $11,600 to total it. Why would you take $5100 and have to pay the other $4000 off yourself? Why not counter offer at say $10,600 and you keep the trailer as long as it is useable for you. This will pay off the loan, give a few bucks for repairs and you can still sell it cheap in a few years to buy a new one if you want. I definitely would not take the $5100 offer!

I don't know how vehicle title works in the USA, but here is what I did here in Ontario for my previous car. It got hail damaged pretty bad. I liked the car, and granted it was not brand new. I did NOT put in an insurance claim, and kept the car, dimples and all. In my mind, insurance claims on stuff like that are never in your favor, and you're right, there will likely be another hail storm in your future. I know it hurts every time you look at it, but I found over time it's less bothersome. My vote is to keep it and stay away from the insurance claim. I also think Jayco won't refuse future warranty claims on anything unrelated to the hail dimples themselves.

BTW, the dent in the antenna will not affect how it works for TV reception.

What a day---on the phone! First of all ---kudos to Gail at the Jayco offices! She got my e-mail this morning (about warranty coverage) ---called me and worked till she had a definitive answer. My camper would no longer be covered under warranty with a salvaged title. So long story short---I'm NOT keeping the camper.

It will take my local dealer 8 or more weeks to get the 2014 184BH. So not sure what I'll do next. I do have my 1988 Fiberglass camper (interior 10 x 6) electric only, porta potty, cold water I can use. It's darn cute, but too small for hubby.

Back to my search------

Well, the decision has been made! Decided to get a new camper! Today we brought home a 2013 Winnebago Minnie 2101FBS. Bright yellow! We are thrilled.

Thank you to the people on this forum who have helped me this past year. I'm now a woman without a forum--actually Winnebago has a forum, but this model is new this year, so not many owners on there---yet!

Happy Camping!
