Backed into the house...

and need to get 3 panels repaired/replaced. Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, can anyone recommend a good repair facility near Austin, TX? Thanks a lot.

There are several places. Airstream of Arkansas in Searcy, AR does outstanding work on airstream panel replacements. Roger Williams Airstream in Weatherford, TX is also a place you can go.

thanks for the help. well, it was bad enough to make you feel a little sick. that being said, it put a pretty decent crease above the rear window, spanning 3 panels. i already talked to my agent and they will cover it, so that's nice.

No longer an Airstream dealer, but still an approved Airstream repair facility. Terrific reputation. They repaired Jim Haddaway's 34 Limited after he severely jacknifed it and ended in a ditch and the repair came out absolutely perfect.

I second the recommendation of N. Dallas RV. Randy will take good care of you. It is right on I35 about 4 hours north of Austin. I'm picking my trailer up from there tomorrow following a number of warranty repairs.

I spoke with Randy today. I think I will be taking mine up there next month or so. It's just a pain to squeeze in a 4hr. drive up there. Thanks to everyone for the help.

Hey Dannyo!
Austin, Texas Airstreamer here. Thought I would write to make you feel better - 'cause you made me feel better! Just backed into a tree limb on Saturday backing my 06 Safari out from under the RV bay I built. Talk about a sickening feeling. Broke the awning arm off which then proceeded (with the limb) to dent (and I mean DENT) an upper rear panel. I will need to replace at least one panel if not two. Any word on where and how to go about this. I am a newbie on this site and a fairly new Airstreamer. We have gone on two fairly long trips. Coming up our third to the Florida Keys next week. I want to get this insurance stuff going before we shove off. Any info you can impart would be of great value. Thanks - Nancy

nancy, i feel for you. it really hurts, doesn't it? well, i still haven't gotten it fixed yet; however, i did talk to my insurance agent and was told to get a quote and then send it to him. it sounded like a fairly simple process. i hope it works out for you. have a safe trip. oh, by the way, i have decided to take it up to n. dallas when i get a chance. i think i have a few months or so to deal with this.

June 1998 came home with new 30ft airstream, thought it would fit where the 24 ft high low was parked. So back in, got out walk around was not enough room, so took to customer shed. Next morning went out to get the paper looked up saw problem with rain cutter, drove over to shed right away, yes new airstream right top corner panel had a big grove it. So 180 mile trip back to Denver to get it fixed, I took a lot heat on how I parked airstreams, the repairman that was a first. it shall be as good as new when they get done.
