Re: French customs are not always pleasant

Catching up on this thread.
French Custom Officers can stop you hundreds of miles away from any border. We call them "Douane Volante" as in "Flying Custom". A shorter name for them is "La Volante".
As they appear to have damaged your vehicle, I would take the matter up with them (Direction Generale des Douanes). You have the place, the date and can make a complaint leading to financial compensation.
I can help with the wording if need be.
