Damage to RV 38 GK

Does anyone know where we can take our damaged RV to have fixed? We were thinking back to Indiana, but don't know if they do that kind of work.
Our tire completely came off. and the bolts that hold the tire on, were completely shirred off, as if someone took a saw and cut them. This caused major damaged to the RV. We need it towed to Indiana from Lancaster, Pa to wherever it needs to go.we are very stressed and lucky to be alive. I say that because the mechanic checked the otherside, and it was about to happen on another wheel. He said we could have been killed if that wheel went as well.

I would contact these folks in Goshen.
https://affinityrvgroup.com/ All I have ever heard about the is good.
Seems some have managed to get into the RW Service Center, but most get told to go to your dealer.

Call Carl Martin, he owns https://www.thetrailershoppe.com

He custom makes trailers and did work on BOTH my 2016 and my 2020 Redwoods.... He will most likely have what you need in stock. HE does NOT do body work, just the mechanical end to get the RV towable.. Then I have a guy in Newark DE that does all types of RV body repair and painting...

Carl is an awesome guy and he is located in Ephreta PA just off 222

Tire Damage

We had tire blowout damaged under slide on passenger side. Insurance didn't offer any help where to go but we were in area of Elkhart, IN and went to Wanna RV & Engine Center. ph: 260-768-4185. Parts were fender skirt, skirt 25 x 193, wire guard harness, trimmetal 4" x 156", silicone, labor, PAINTING. Replaced skirt metal, starter strip, wire guard harness, fender shirt and paint. $2245.83 for 2012 Redwood 36FB in year 2016. (Full body paint so that was expensive.) DO NOT TURN INTO YOUR Insurance if you live in AZ. They charge it as a moving accident and report to Nexis Lexis so your rates go up for 5 years (AARP Hartford). Maybe you don't have RV on your auto policy, but it a very economical way to cover it if you can. Still have our original 2012 and still loving it.

Damage.

Thank you for all that info. We live in Florida, and the damage is extensive, more then fenders. But will call that number u gave us. Maybe they can do slides and the back, where it meets the side corner.
