Hold on to your hat. The key scratches to the car and the Journey were reported to my insurance company. The car came to just under $1000. The preliminary estimate to the Journey will be somewhere between $3000 to $4000.
The reason the Journey will cost so much is the scratches went through all three color bands (or swirls) on the side of it, and the scratches are deep enough into the aluminum of the basement compartment doors that some filler will be required. Then it has to have the clear coat applied after the three colors of paint are put on.
The good news is the car will be done Friday and the Journey will be done in time for our Labor Day weekend getaway. The "gooder" news is it is covered under the comprehensive clause on my insurance policy, so my rates won't go up. The lesser good news, okay the annoyingly bad news is I have to pay a $100 deductible on each vehicle. :c(
So I've put the word out to some of the neighborhood kids to let me know if they hear anything. You never know.
And so, the joy of RV ownership goes on. I still wouldn't trade the owning a beautiful motorhome and things that happen to it for anything. Just a little speed bump in the highway of life. :c)

That is always such a shame that some people can be that cruel.ReplyDelete
In my opinion it's just jealousy of somebody having something nicer then they do. When in reality they could have the same if they only had an entirely different attitude.
Glad to hear, you will not allow it to ruin your day!
