Skin coming off underneath

Hi, I own a 1986 Sovereign 26' and the front transition from wall sheet to under sheath has been coming off for awhile, I fixed it with duck tape. The other day on the highway the "good" side of the front transition, just to the side of the hitch came off totally. Upon further inspection I have a hole in the underneath sheathing at the storage tanks. (along with two front pieces coming off) I am guessing I will need either a total re-do or most of it redone, including the plastic transition pieces. Is this prohibitive for a DYI? If so how much in round numbers ($$) am I looking at for a pro to do it?

I believe the parts you are refering to are called the banana wrap. Based on your description of the location.
Sounds like the belly pan is also coming loose.
Were you able to recover the parts?

No parts ecovered/pictures to come

Thanks for the responses! Unfortunately, I discovered the banana wrap was gone only after I stopped for diesel, so they were not recovered. Are they difficult parts to find? I will send pictures this evening.


Thanks!

Pictures

Here are the pictures of the damage. Expert Gorilla taping on the front, the port side has the banana wrap underneath the tape, the starboard side is missing it all. Seems to come loose just under the blue rubber that goes around the trailer. The underside is a little hard to see, but the hole is jsut underneath the holding tanks, you can see the metal tear if you look there. Thanks for any help!!!
