I have seen some excellent metal work done at the AS dealership in Spokane. I had some minor work done, but while there saw the finish of an extensive repair to a front 1/4 and side of a 27 FB. The before pictures showed extensive damage, including damage to the frame. From what I saw, the repair was first rate.

Airstream knows Vinnie well and he is an authorized repair location for Airstream. I can't recommend Vinnie enough. His honesty and integrity is unmatched. At the very least, call him and send him the pictures. He will give you solid feedback and recommendations. Good luck.
X2 for Vinnieís!

I'm a winter snow bird and need feedback good or bad on these two for repair workmanship

I'd suggest going to the factory, when we had damage done to the arms on our awning it took over a month to get them in, perhaps the factory would be faster?

The Factory Service Center always does a great job. Plus, they have any part needed on site.

I had my curb side upper and lower panels plus the lower front end cap and complete Zip Dee Relax awning replaced at Airstream Adventures NW in Gladstone, Oregon (five miles south of Portland) on a 25' 2014 Serenity. Excellent work and they did it right away. Very happy with the people at this dealership. Good luck!

For future reference: Ford's Blind Spot Information System and telescoping mirrors on my F150 really identify any vehicle beside or even approaching the trailer.
I would agree. For those looking to buy trucks, etc. Two things I find invaluable:
1). Rear Camera to see whatís coming up behind me.
2). BLISS system that puts light on when vehicles in blind spot. This comes on other TVís as well. Great safety feature even when not towing.

But thatís beside the point now. Hope you can find someone decent to repair it.

When we were having some work done at Can-Am RV in London, Ontario a couple of months ago, we met a couple from Oklahoma who had some repairs made at Lazy days in Tucson. They were very dissatisfied with the work (I believe they came to Can-Am to have it corrected). Andy Thomson at Can-Am put in a good word for Oasis as I recall.
