Got dent!

Hi! in pulling away from a gas pump island my rear drivers side quarter panel on my 86 345 caught the guard pipe and damaged the sewer/electrical cord access door along with the plastic rear quarter panel.
My question is has anyone seen a 345 in a salvage yard or know if any parts are available thru Airstream?
Any help! Many thanks!
Pete

Sorry to hear about that..
The local A/S dealership here in NH, that's now out of business, had one in their back lot for awhile..It was finally towed away when they closed shop...I have no clues as to where it ended up..

The original Airstream parts are available.

Be very careful who you may chose to do the repairs.

Removing a metal panel from and old Airstream trailer or motorhome, and reinstalling it successfully, has about 1 in 1000 chances of being ok.

You cannot simply "remove" and old panel, without causing some damage to it.
