Exterior delamination repairs

Anyone had any experiance in the best place to take MH for exterior delam work? Most body shops I've talked to aren't all that interested. Also heard its hard to repair just certain areas,(repaires look as bad as bulge) and that the whole side should be replaced. Has anyone had this type of work done, and how did the job turn out?Previous owner was negligent in caulking around couple windows, and I would like to have work done if not crazy expensive.

Go to a boat repair shop or an aircraft composite shop, both should be able to help you, with the boat shop probably cheaper but a better job at the aircraft shop

Delamination repair

Gloran,
Here in Florida, some of the bigger RV dealers like Lazy Days have big
RV Body Shops and do that kind of repair. If you have anyone up in Michigan that does Corvette body work, that may be an alternative.
RV Body shops charge $85 and hour and a Corvette shop will be half
that. Ever consider a do it youself project? You can grind yur mistakes
off with fiberglass.
Paul

I did contact one fiberglass repair shop, and it looked like he knew what he was doing. But his shop was to small to bring MH in side, I would like to have work done during winter months when I don't use coach as much.The storage garage I keep rig in is heated but I only have parking privilege, can't be tearing MoHo apart in it. Don't really have room at home even for a summer project. Has anyone ever seen a larger RV company like Lazy-Days work on a delam coach? I heard the AS factory in Ohio used to do repairs on their coaches, has anyone had body work done there?

I had some body work done at the Airstream factory on the front end (all fiber glass). They did a very good job.
