Tear in skin of trailer

I am looking at a older trailer with a tear in the outer shell.
Can this be repaired easily and how will it look.
Does it gave to go to the factory.

It depends where the tear is. You might be able to put a patch on it and attach with blind pop rivets, if you did not care how it looked. For a lot more money you could have that panel replaced. If you are just looking to keep the rain out of a small tear, thick metal aluminum duck tape with work for a year.
