In all of the years i have been around automobiles i have never seen an insurance company fix anything that had an interior fire or that was even in a building that burned,damaging paint etc.
I'm sure they have a reason.

The main reason is hidden damage.

I guess that makes sense. Seems a huge waste with something like a Blue Bird

From what I understand "hidden damage" had a lot to do with it. The insurance appraiser (third party(and could care less)) said there "could be" hidden damage that could be a few thousand more. There isn't any place for hidden damage though. None of the wood was burnt through. I will have to replace two vinyl covered ceiling panels because the 1/4" birch plywood is chard. above those panels is undamaged plywood used in the sub ceiling which covers the spray insulation which in turn protects the steel roof. The fire guys were walking around the coach looking for damage. They were even more amazed when they opened the cabinet doors directly above the fire and found plastic containers that weren't even discolored!! I do love my 'Bird.



Thanks for all the offers guys. I will definitely look into renting or buying an ozone generator. We did use a fire restoration company to try and salvage some personal belongings and they utilized one. They were able to save more than I thought.



Randy D., I may be calling looking for some LXi overhead kitchen cabinets and acrylic glass cabinet. Have any??? maybe a Kool-O-Matic fan trim piece and sliding door.

I made kool-a-matic trim and door as my coach did not come with any. So easy, even a Framer can do it.
