window

I had asked in an earlier thread about how to handle a broken window I thought had broken because of a defect from Airstream. I have found a place where it looks like a bb hit the side of the airstream. So I am assuming the window was shot with a bb gun while we were riding down the road. It happened between northern TN when we stopped to get gas and the campsite in Evansville, IN. Anyone ever have this happen or just my luck? I guess insurance can fix the window but to fix the bb marking in the aluminum will require a lot more work. No way to easily get to the inside of the outer skin. And then there are the scratches in the clearcoat when the glass hit the side of the trailer. I am hoping they can be sanded and buffed. This really sucks. Thanks for letting me vent, Mike

Install a single Olympic rivet where the dent is in the metal.
