Aluminum comes in different grades. If you get the same as the skin on the trailer it shouldn't matter if it is from Airstream or a warehouse. If the coating you refer to is plasticoat, don't try to work the panel too much or you will end up stripping and resealing. If you get a formed punched panel as a replacement that would be ok, but I would go with bare metal for anything else. Think about auto body shops, they don't install painted parts, assemble and then paint.
