The trucking company has commercial insurance and will make you happy if you insist. Keep track of everything you spend that is related. Report all contents down to a bar of soap.

Easy to total a 10 year old truck as the book value is low and repairs high. If the frame is not damaged get a few estimates for body work. After you settle with the insurance company offer $300 for the truck as salvage and have it repaired if it makes financial sense. 61,000 miles I often put on a truck annually, yours is hardly broke in....

The trucking company owes you a new truck and new trailer. I had a 2001 Ford F-250 totaled by a Dodge Colt in Canada because driver fell asleep and hit us head on. This happened in 2005 right after retiring. The truck had 18,000 miles on it. The Canadian insurance gave us a good settlement and our insurance paid us what we almost paid for it in 2001. Still, it was almost like new when totaled and took many more thousands od dollars to replace when we had just retired months before. Not in the budget. We were not towing the trailer when it happened. It messes you up mentally after being hit head on.
