how much for dealer to install segment protectors?

Looking for a ballpark of what I should expect to pay to install on our Bambi. Thinking about calling dealer tomorrow. Am competent to self-install if need be. Appreciate any input.

Bought trailer new six months ago, washed it for the second time over the weekend and was astonished at the beating it's taken and can only imagine how bad it would be after this summer's big road trip.

I priced out three front roof segments installed at Airstream factory.

$5400 using Olympia rivets. More if I want buck rivets because it would require removing the inside. I thought the factory labor rate is $120 hour.

The 3 segment cost around $1400 from Outdoor mart.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

I chose America

I installed mine on both trailers. Its not a bad job. I bought one pair from P & S trailers and they had them drop shipped from factory for about $600 - but that was about 3 years ago. It's not a bad job. Just use Vulkem on the mtg screws and brkt screws. The trailers do get beat up more than you would expect, even on highway trips !

Stone dents used to be a badge of courage, showed the trailer was a road warrier. I guess things have changed, appearances are everything today. Gonna be expensive! Jim

Some great dealer (4 hrs away) had them drop-shipped from Jackson Center and they arrived at the house today! Only $306 each, although they're not as big as others I've seen. Looks to be a simple installation, although initially had alot of uncertainty as the included instructions did not match the included hardware. Had to do a bit of searching to find a vid. Anyways, pic and vid here:
