and then there was this rock

On our last trip, we accidentally got into loop B at Joshua Tree Cottonwood campground.  When I pulled out, I ran over a rock behind a shrub.  The back tire ran up and over, and I landed on the bin door.  A few inches more, and I would have landed on the radiator and CAC.  That would have been messy.

Photos are before and after the repair.  I am very pleased with the repair that Artistic Elegance did here in Tucson.  Good fiberglass and metal work.  Wonderful paint match.  The bin latch works nicely.  No hassles with the insurance company or with them.

So VERY glad you waited and posted after the repair had been made (and it looks great, BTW  ^.^d  )

Thanks!

I usually don't bang into things,  and this bump made me sick.  I thought about trying to repair it myself - I have done a little fiberglass work.  But the issue was the battery tray.  It has to be just right, or the latches won't line up.

The great repair allows me to kind of get over what I did!

Yeah I know that feeling. Not once but thrice! It's only fiberglass. Rebuildable, paintable, fixable. Nice work.

Were you able to live in the coach during the repairs?

I’m sure it made you sick and would have me.. Now you can stop beating yourself up. All is well that ends well and the repair looks good as new.

The shop is 23 miles from our sticks and bricks (actually sticks and stuck stucco), so that was not an issue.  Saving $1000 of fuel cost to get to Nacogdoches was very cool.
