Looks like every single panel on that side, impressive !

Car body shop is going to love that project, 20-30k at a guess ?

Surely u can't go so far hearing that scrape...must have been hit by something ?
We were on the aire at Lamarche-sur-Saône in France last year which was packed, so we ended up parked just across from the service point.
Lovely hot sunny day, so everybody was lounging outside their vans, when the new looking German MH that was on the last pitch riverside drove his MH all of the 50 metres to the services to empty his khazi. When done, rather than drive the ten metres to the roadway and back to his pitch, he immediately turned right to cut off the corner, but in doing so hit the side of his van amidships with the post and railings protecting the service point and kept going. With the crunching noise, everybody on the aire looked around and those nearby started yelling and waving for him to stop, but no he kept going, gouging the rest of the side of his van and ripping off the wheel arch.
When he got back to his pitch his wife who had watched it all happen due to the yelling and shouting understandably went bananas and stormed off into the distance waving her hands above her head and cursing.
The MH had disappeared by the next morning.

That may even be conservative. It will require a complete new side, and that will not be cheap or I'm guessing, quickly available.

That looks like damage done by a stone wall 🫣 maybe moved over to avoid an oncoming vehicle and caught a high wall at a fair speed, hence all down the side of the motorhome damaged 🤦‍♂️

If it needs a new side wall then you could double that at least, probably be written off here.

Still dropping clangers and making it up as I go along
Very embarrassing for the owner who must be devastated. Just as well the pictures weren't posted on an open forum ey?
Hope its not someone on here lent it the kids and they had not told their parent of a little misshap :Eeek:

Maybe a new take on ‘log book loan’…….

The owner needed some cash so deliberately scrapes down the whole side of the motorhome. The insurance company writes it off, pays the owner the value (say £100k) the owner then buys it off the insurance company for say £40k and has now £60k in the bank and does not mind the aesthetic look 🤣🤣😂😂
