Crashed My Van

Post by barbsark »

I bought my 93 B190 in 2016 . i had been looking for a class B for over three years and found it in Donna Texas. Now I have had a Stroke while I was driving it and crashed it.The Insurance has said it's a total loss as the estimate to rpaire is $13,664. If I keep it They will pay out $13,800.00 to me.I'm waiting for another estimate that will tell me if the drive train has been dammaged I'm not sure what to do. I really love this Van!

Just picked this up. Sorry to hear this but it sounds like you were not physically hurt and are dealing with the stroke at this point. I guess it comes down to 3 options. 1. You said that insurance will pay you $13,800 if you keep it and that it would cost $13,360 to repair. So you could take the money and repair it.
2. You may just want to get it out of your life so let the insurance take it and take whatever additional money they will give you.
3. Or, take the insurance money, keep it and part it out.
Good luck with whatever you choose to do.
