Here is one located a bit of a drive from you but the price sounds very good and the description makes it sound like an almost like new unit. Might make a good "Memorial Day" trip for you. [emoticon]

Echoing what everyone else has said.

You do have time to find a replacement before Memorial Day.

We had a car that was a total loss from a hail storm 2-3 years ago. My advice is to be ready to negotiate with the insurance company. If they are like ours (Safeco), they will come in with a settlement that is lower than you want. Start your search now for comparable units to show the adjuster to help with your valuation.

Good luck.

Dangz thats tough.
I lost 3 years old truck camper in a tornado. It was sitting beside the garage. The tornado picked it and rolled it out across the pasture. Nothing left but two beat up LP tanks and 3 hydraulic post jack bent like pretzels.
Insurance wanted to give me a cash settlement at 10 percent reduction per year from my cost.
I contacted the RV dealer on replacement with same campers and all options I added. I refused the very low cash offer and told them to replace it with same. After 3 weeks they couldn't find one like it so they upped their cash offer to actual replacement price which was considerable higher due to double digit inflation.

Glad no one hurt.

Probably saturated ground being spring along with a decent wind allowed the tree to go over.

If the insurance doesn't play games, good chance of getting a replacement by Memorial Day.
