Exterior replacement parts

Hello,

I am thinking of taking on a project that would require me to repalce exterior panels. A tree fell through the top. I am wondering how difficult it is to get the curved corners and other curved parts. These look as if they would be too hard to fabricate at home. I did see a post referencing Cherokee rv. Is it better to do new parts?? Is this option available? Which way would be better to go? Price wise I'm sure that salvaged would be best.

Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I want to find out how hard these are to find b4 I buy this a yet another "project"

Thank you

Kandy

Oh yeah it is a 1978

I have no direct answer for you, however, a pic or two of the potential "project" will probably assist in realistic answers to your question. Good luck, you might check with the thread of camp collector, he had a tree fall on his Bambi...

If a tree fell on it, you may also need some "main bows".

All the sheet metal is still available for your coach.

However, we suggest that you deal with a dealer that knows "exactly" what you need instead of guessing.

Be prepared to provide the serial number and a couple of photos of the damaged components.

Larger sheet metal parts are shipped motor freight.
