Uh-oh, just saw the pics. This one is bad and way more than a handy-man wants to undertake. Again, we have repaired a few of these but not to this extent. Walk around the unit and count the sections that are damaged. Minimun $500 per section. Door with frame over 2k, stone guards $500 each, propane cover $500. Front windows with solar cover $3000, tor-flex axles $1000 each. Lights, windows, trim, propane tanks, awning parts...the list will be long and most of it available only through A/S. Interior panels are surely damaged as well. Multiple ribs and spars to replace. Molding--beltline and lower $1000 to wrap around the entire trailer. Overhead cabinets? Heavy damage to the corner with the shower??
I think an honest appraisal of the cost of parts alone should discourage repair. The 23FB is worth about 52k in perfect shape with a clean title. This one repaired to perfection..probably 40k and the likelihood of repairing it to perfection is low. Add your initial cost to the cost of parts and I bet it is real close to 40k. No easy solution at this point but its kinda like getting in a bar fight...sometimes a good run is better than a bad stand. Part her out and who knows, you might make a little money and a few new friends.
