I agree on selling as is. The damage, at least most of it, is superficial...just beauty marks, although sizable enough to make this trailer really pretty!

Superficial dents in the banana wraps and skin do not make the trailer unusable, just a little bit harder on the eyes.

All that said, it is still a nice looking trailer and would make a nice rig for the right person who is handy enough to fix some of the blemishes.

Use it or sell it...

SO Sorry!!!

I truly know how you feel! What will your insurance cover? I've seen some extraordinary repairs done at the factory and it just depends on its final usage for you or next owner. If you are DONE with the AS, someone else MAY see it as a opportunity to get a AS and project. A dealer hoping to sell you another newer model - MAY - give you a clue to its real "worth" as a trade-in. You then can figure if it's with saleing or junking. Leaving it as is will lead to other issues; the main one being water and pests. Someone may see it of restoration value OR as a doner of parts. As others have offered, there are shops that can do the work - it's just how attached you are to beauty intersecting with your finances.
