An update to my thread on the insurance page
After accident on easter Friday our burstner has been written off we were attacked from the rear by a french car driven by a swede on holiday in scotland both vehicles written off we have settled we didn't lose much on the van thankfully we are both still recieving physiotherapy at his expense my wife's shoulders kneck and arms ,causing some concern and my lower back and hips being rather stiff still the drivers seat gave way.
The decision has been made not to replace our motor home but to try some holiday cottages instead we are booked up for later this month

not long enough
You may well return to a Motorhome in the future

But a write off and all financially resolved is probably the best result for you right now rather than all the hanging in for repairs

Best of luck with your personal recoveries, sounds like quite a shunt to break the seat mounting

Concentrate on getting both of you well physically and mentally from the trauma. Then make your decision final ..
Good luck and wishing you strength in whichever path you choose to take.

Don't forget to put in a claim for injury compensation, not just the cost of the medical treatment.

That old chestnut
From the injuries and treatment they're having its not gonna go away overnight and could easily need further treatment in the future which may cost them money.

It's always difficult to have to give up something that you have enjoyed and motorhoming is something that normally creates many happy memories. So sorry to hear that your accident has forced you to give up and hope that you will soon recover from your injuries. Also hope that you will be able to relax and have a good holiday in your rented cottage.

Think I would leave my decision about not replacing the Moho for a good while.

Without trying to state the obvious you could have been hit in a car with a similar outcome.
Would that have stopped you from driving a car.

Good luck with your final decision

Sorry to hear you're still suffering the effects of the accident, but like others I would put off making any kind of decision until you see how your injuries sort themselves out.

Cottages are great, we used to take our holidays in all sorts, from a converted garage to a sumptious barn conversion, in the UK and in France (gites). But we found them a bit restrictive as we are wanderers at heart.

Good luck with your recovery.
