Thank you for the advice! I've sent pics and got an estimate from Airstream but will use the insurance to cover it. Lesson learned on our part'

You'll need to remove the inside panels to do the job right. Make sure that's what they have in mind when you have the repairs done. Your insurance should pay. Good luck

If something like that happened to the FaN, I'd be inclined to take it to an aircraft-structures specialist vs. a body shop that does trailer repairs.

An aircraft-structures programme at a trade school might work too. There is one right here in the Fraser Valley.

I did the same thing a couple years ago. Mine was two of the panels only...the curbside top curved corner and the center panel. it was $3,400 at the mothership. There are no ribs up there above the window until you get to a bow at the white roof/end cap interface.

edit: There are no ribs nor inner skin IF you have cabinets up there. If you have inner skin showing, there probably are ribs.
