a big oops

just got back from a beautiful long weekend in the mountains- backing the airstream into the yard, swung too wide and hit a tree crumpling the two corner panels on the upper back passenger side of the trailer, I'm in Alberta just South of Red Deer. Anyone know where I can get this fixed? (This has been our only trip this year -wouldn't you know)

Well, it's not perfect, but made a huge improvement-a friend who has a window business loaned me two large suction cups he uses for carrying glass; stuck one to the dent and pulled hard and popped the worst of the dent out. Also worked on the upper panel-so I
can live with that until I get it professionally repaired.

I have nightmares about this sort of thing. Glad you were able to pop most of it out.

I think there's an AS dealer in Calgary that could replace panels. Poor Tradewind...
