You will only get the book value of the car at the time of the accident. It may not be enough to replace it, but that is how insurance works. If you have GAP insurance through your bank with your loan, then that insurance will cover the difference in replacing that particular make/model of car. This does not pay enough to replace the car. It will pay the remainder of your loan after the insurance settlement. You may still owe the bank your deductible amount.

If your vehicle was damaged but not totaled can you request that the insurance company replace it with a new vehicle if the accident was not your fault?

Fault in the accident is not a consideration. Normally the insurance company or the at fault driver is responsible only for repairing your vehicle and providing you with a rental car. While this may not be entirely fair, it is the system and you agreed to it when you chose to drive. Some states do have a provision that a vehicle must be totaled if the damage exceeds a certain percentage of the total value of the auto. YOur best resource is your insurance agent. lwpat

Can you claim loss of use for a totaled travel trailer that was your home in an accident which was not your fault?

Yes, in most circumstances you can claim loss of use against a third party. There are a few exceptions, Michigan, for example is no-fault for property damage and you would therefore have to have rental coverage on the policy covering the travel trailer. I would think you would be owed the cost of renting a replacement trailer for the duration of repairs (reasonable repairs) or until you received a reasonable total loss offer.
