skin replacement possibilities

I have read much of the Ribs, Skins and Rivets forum and I am probably just missing the information I am looking for but here goes anyway. I want to replace an exterior skin on our 77 Sovereign. After looking at the '77 parts manual, I believe the skin in question is Segment #4, the rear, lower curbside corner segment. I understand that this segment is stretch formed as well, something I must consider when looking for a replacement. My question is whether I can still order this segment from the AS factory, and/or is it available at AS dealerships? Or am I out of luck in this regard? I have read plenty about how others have used aluminum alclad .032-.040 thick. Is it possible to use this aluminum or does it first have to be stretch formed to fit this corner? I have searched the AS parts suppliers on line and travel trailer salvage yards, but none list aluminum skins in their inventory. Is it hard to get the segments or am I missing something obvious?
If anyone can point me in the right direction.....
