I just replaced my tongue jack with a Husky hb3000 from adventure rv for 200. I would also replace the awning as I use mine every trip from hot sun to rain. Good to here it’s working for you. My son is looking for a wolfpup 17jg but they are hard to find.

To the OP -

The great thing is when someone runs over to tell you they see your trailer has some damage there you can bull chit them about how you rolled it on the way to the campground and a girls fastball team stopped and helped you roll it back on it's wheels good thing the fridge travel latch held etc etc

Looking good so far.

Glad to hear it is working out for you. I would keep an eye on the wheel bearings, as the one on the right side certainly would have experienced extra stress as the unit tipped over. Also curious if your insurance company let you reinsure the salvage trailer, or if you had to go a different route?

My original insurance company remove TT from my policy and told me they can not insure totalled RV. I didn't look from other insurance since it's not required for TT in my state and now I have even less value to insure.
My TT does come with 1Y factory roadside service and I confirmed it's still working. The dealer also offer same one year of roadside service. Maybe after that I will think about other options.

We started out camping in a converted 1977 van. The we got a slide in/cabover camper. Then we got too big for our britches and decided we needed a travel trailer. I found a one year old, salvaged, 1991 Prowler. We went to look at it. It had become detached from the tow vehicle and rolled into a deep ditch. One side was scraped up, a window was broken but, the glass had been replaced, etc.. I bought it and we camped our butts off in that thing for years. We saved a ton of money, which was good because we were young and money was tight.

I think you should consider getting a liabilty policy for your salvaged TT.

I had no problem getting insurance on mine in Idaho. I think I would look elsewhere. Good luck

^Why would he need a separate liability policy unless required by state or not part of vehicle when in travel?
