We were under the impression that:
1) "they" have to fix the damage.
2) we are told that we have the right to chose the repair facility where we feel the trailer will be fix to the proper specs. (and since this is not a regular rv it seems like factory is the way to go)
There are many very well quailfied Airstream dealers that can repair major body damage, although your damage is very minor, other than the factory.
I have been doing it for over 46 years, and taught others how, for many years as well.
While the factory is good, there are others that can easily share the same reputation.
Non dealers are usually another story, since Airstream parts from them will cost much more.
Your stalling the settlement, is not paying any dividends. You have been provided estimates from reliable sources, and I think you should accept them, especially since you asked for them.
The damage to your Airstream, at best, is considered very minor, as it will take just a little over one day to correct it.
Good Airstream repair shops, do that just about every day.
