I know this has been dealt with in other threads, but none seem to be quite as bad as my damage. I was hit by a car on a roundabout which holed and crumpled the front near side corner of my Troll 540 GT. I live in the midlands, and the accident occurred on the way bad from its annual service and water ingress check!! I would really value recommendations of a good company who will do the repairs properly and maintain the value of the caravan. As usual on Facebook, Ive heard some horror stories both about Saga and workshops, so am rather anxious now.

Oh Stewart, I do feel for you. I'd contact your insurance company and tell them you are getting a quote from your Eriba dealer who has serviced the van. They vans are of a unique construction and the dealer is best placed to advise on the works required. That should get the ball rolling.
I'd think the reaction would be get the quote and we'll then send somebody around.

If it's not too late and you are going down the insurance route then Leisure First are the go to. Just had my 530 repaired by them, good as new.
My iinurers tried alternatives but all turned them down due to the uniqueness of tbe Eriba you'll be needing a complete bottom half re-skin, guess you'll be claiming against the car if it wasn't your fault. Get in touch with Cameron at LF for a quote but don't expect a quick repair
