Need collision repair recommendation

I am currently near Parker, AZ, where a very large tree limb fell on the top of my trailer, toward the rear end of my 2006 Safari, 25' SE model, FB. The trailer has a large dent in the center rear panel, above the word "Airstream", a smaller dent in left rear quarter panel and a dent on the roof, just forward of the rear center panel. The skylight is severely scratched.

Without going into all the insurance considerations, I need to find a repair place in the Las Vegas area (I will soon be camping outside of Boulder City at Lake Mead). Does anybody know of a repair place other than Clark's (that is not the full name, but 'Clark' is in the name)? Camping World has a major repair facility in the area but says they don't work on Airstreams. I'm not heading west so Reno is out. Any ideas? Thanks!

What a bummer! I think, if you must get it fixed right away, your travel plans may change. Maybe your insurance company will have something to say about repairing it and where. Seems to me an Airstream dealer or JC may be the place to go, but some Airstream dealers are to be avoided. Have the seams been compromised so water can get in?

I haven't answered your question and probably everything I've said is obvious.

It's about 275 miles out of your way, but I would recommend Oasis RV in Tucson.

Oasis RV in Tucson has a very good reputation - note I've not used them myself. They no longer carry new Airstreams but they are still a Airstream Authorized Service Center. I had some non-body work done on my trailer by the dealer in the Apache Jct/Mesa area and while the work done was OK I did feel I was overcharged for repacking wheel bearings on a single axle trailer. Have no idea what kind of panel work they do.
