Well after many phone calls I got the insurance company to agree that this was NOT a total loss. After the van was towed to my house, an independent appraiser came and looked at it. They agreed that is was worth more than $1,000.00 in fact they put the value at just over $5,000.00. My Repair estimate was around $3,000.00 so not even close to a total. I want to say thanks to leadfoot for the NADA reminder, I'm sure the page I pulled out of there helped. And also I have to say AAA did a god job of keeping an open mind when the vehicle wasn't a run of the mill car. The motto here is never give up.

that's a happier ending to a another sad van story-some one trashed the side of my van-
_we found out who did it but couldn't do anything because the people who saw him wouldn't come forward-(and i repaired the damage and did;nt document the damages or repairs(did em myself anyway))
Listening to the scanner the other day

I don't know what the bigger bummer is leadfoot, the fact that you sold your van, or the fact that your custom paint job got screwed up. I know that you'll get another one probably when you're not looking. Thats how it always happens to me. Take care and thanks again..
