Your husband should be covered by medicare and they don't generally give quotes!

Welcome to the AS Forums.

A picture or discription of the damage might help others respond.

Your local RV dealers should be able to steer you in the right direction

CindyKoivula,

Howdy and welcome to Airforums.com! Too bad about your husband and his accident. I'm guessing he was in a vehicle when he ran into the trailer, hope nobody was hurt!

If you are in Lorette near Winnipeg, click here for a list of local RV places near you. I have a feeling that they are going to want you to bring in the trailer. Is it roadworthy?

Is there a small airport near you? There may be someone who is familiar with repairing aluminum and replacing riveted panels. The panels are available from Airstream but in some cases, plain flat aluminum sheet will work.

If the damage is not too bad a lot of dents can be pushed out with a small roller. There are threads on this. Someone who does paintless dent repair on cars may have the skills to do this. It is surprising what large dents can be fixed this way if the metal is not stretched or crushed.
