Well, the problem with Caravans, and many other vehicles, is the low clearance. So... banging the curbs is not uncommen. Actually, we had always been quite careful *not* to do this, but after a couple times, the damage is done and we're maybe not as careful....
Today, backing out of the station in Girdwood, about half the lower portion pulled out. Not suprised, it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Being the creative geniuses we are (and me being prone to have lots of 'stuff' in my trunkbox), we were able to do a good temp repair.
Using the vehicle's bottle jack and some wood I found nearby, I pushed the bent bumper back out.
Its a good thing I have those new tires stacked in the garage. It looks like I'll need to install them soon.
