Our story is a bit different, but I'll relate it anyway. We recently purchased a '52 flying cloud with a crease across some of the end cap panels as well. We took it to a very reputable restoration shop. They took a look and quoted us around $2500-$2700 to repair to our damaged panels. We went ahead and agreed to have them do the repair to the skin, but once they got to working on it, they called and said they were having problems making the aluminum do what they wanted it to, and they changed their mind on doing the repair. They did a bunch of other stuff to the trailer, and we're happy with the work, but one of the main reasons they became reluctant to do the repair was the fact that the interior skin was in such nice shape they didn't want to have to take it all apart and mess it up, but they were afraid of being able to ensure the soundness of the exterior skin repair without being able to get to it from underneath. So now we have a trailer with a crease across it. Fine for now. It's a character mark we keep telling ourselves, but it's going to definitely impact resell if we ever decide to sell it. I know you don't buy an airstream to make money, but it is something to consider. And I see you're near Atlanta, so don't forget the cost of towing the trailer to Ohio and back if you have it done at the factory. That's not an insignificant cost. I'm not saying not to get the trailer. Just I would make sure you would be happy with the trailer even if you were to find out you were going to be stuck with the dents for a while. We still probably would've bought ours, but we definitely should've paid a bit less in hindsight.
