There's an Airstream park in Florida...might be a good place to find a local reference/reccomendation...When it comes to panel work, I would think the ground rules would be pretty much the same for mohos and trailers...mike

There was an airstream dealer (I believe also a Isuzu truck dealer) in Rivera Beach(West Palm) that if still there replaced panels on a friends 05 safari. I think they still did repair work after closing their dealership. If I can find the name, will post it.

Closest AS dealer is Bates in Tampa. But you might be able to find someone doing aircraft repair in Miami that can handle your panel repair.

I wouldn't let Bates change a light bulb...... let alone a panel!!

From my previous experience with them, their tech's skill level is way below acceptable!
