    Local council contractors have wrecked our motorhome.

    At least the driver had the decency to come back and own up!!!!

    The whole of the back and the bathroom will need replacing and thats just our non expert opinion.

    So much for half term holidays and the other plans we had

    GUTTED !!!!!

    If anyone knows of a lunar specialist who can repair this - if the independent assessor says it isnt a write off please let us know

    Thanks xxxxx

    Really sorry to hear that. :Sad:

    I hope you get sorted and the council pay up.
    I know it's no consolation when your plans have just gone up in smoke, and God knows how long it will take to put right, so ANY plans are now on hold.

    If it is a write off the long slog to find a replacement will seem like an eternity.

    Chin up and hope everything works out for you. :thumb:

    Thats awful.

    Hope you can sort it out.

    No reason why the Councils insurers shouldn't pay for you to hire one until its repaired.

    Sorry to hear that Gail, hope you get it sorted.

    Not sure if you can get Lunar parts that easy. (I think i remember someone saying that, it might be hearsay) but if might be better to find out while negotiations with insurance and council etc.

    Hugs

    Sorry to hear this Gail :cry: how old is the van ? Anything above 10 yrs and I think they will write it off as spares will be a problem plus matching up bodywork will be nightmare

    Does your insurance cover a replacement Vehicle while you
    are off road.(bearing in mind that yours was/is a specially adapted van)

    or compensation?

    Sorry Gail
    I forgot to add were both sad to hear it
    and wish you all the best in sorting it.

    Oh Gail what rotten luck, thank goodness they owned up, maybe best if they write it off and you get a proper offer of value, could be a quicker option , you could so do without this hassle, sending you a hug :hug:let us know how you get on.

    Really sorry to hear this. I hope you get it sorted promptly.
    If it was me I would be tempted to push for a write off. Vehicles never seem to be the same after an accident this bad :cry:

    What bad luck. I know how you feel.Three weeks into a tour of Germany a kindly blind German managed to rip the side out of my Auto Cruise and write it off. I had driven off the road onto a grass verge to avoid him but he was good, he still got me. Good luck with the repair. BUSBY.

    Sorry to hear about your MH, you could certainly do without all the hassle. I do hope no one was injured. That's the best way to look at it, as long as your all ok.
