1977 Sovereign Buckled

Help ! I put my Airstream on blocks but when I returned this season, I found that the ground has sunk from heavy rains and trailer has dropped on both ends.All weight has been on center.Flashing under trailer is buldging out.
(also,icebox section has dropped 3 in. )
There was no water in tanks,so this is all due to no weight support from blocks sinking.
I need to get it reset on blocks with a solid base but I am a woman alone and no one to ask what to do to prevent further structure damage to frame from pressure put on frame from new blocks,and lifting dropped ends.
Also,how badly do you think frame has been damaged? ( I can send pictures )
As,will I be able to move it again?
Oh this hurts, I Treasure my Airstream !!

I would be willing to bet that if you are able to get the trailer jacked up, off the blocks, and have it pulled to level ground, all twisting will take care of itself and the trailer will unbuckle itself. Hope you have a 4x4.

Maybe this calls for a little outreach a la "So you want to buy a trailer that's 3 states away" ... anybody within striking distance of this poor Airstream & its owner? Any travelers out there on I-40 just east of Oklahoma City? I know fabofabo will be driving that route but not for at least a week.
