While our motorhome was parked at the Freightliner dealer for repair of the heater core, vandals broke the window out of the door and shattered the long side window next to the door. They stole the rearview camera system, the dash radio and CD player, and all of the other entertainment equipment on our 2000 Journey. While doing so, they completely tore up the dash. They also pulled the thermostat out of the wall and left it dangling. Now we have to figure out how to get it fixed. Thankfully we have insurance. Anyone been through this before?

I had our Grand Tour vandilized a couple of years ago in a locked,fenced storage lot. My dash pod was pried up and bent over to the left side. The overhead doors were pried off from the top bending the frame behind them. Bathroom door was kicked open breaking the trim. Winnebago straps in the front TV and the microwave so all they did was pry the trim off. The day/night shades were torn from the mountings. Factory did an excellent job of repairing the damage and I had been with Progressive for five years so no deductable.

Thats not vandalism, its Criminal Damage to Property, Tresspassing and Theft, in this case a felony. I hope they are caught and convicted. These idiots are sucking my air, and have no regard for others.

The vandalism occurred in Billings, MT. We live in Wyoming, but Billings had the closest freightliner repair facility (192 mi.). The people at the repair facility have been great to deal with and ours was not the only one vandalized at their facility. Such a shame for all concerned. Thanks for all your responses.
