NC or other dealer recommendation for repair

A stealthy heavy wooden box came up and hit our new FC 27FB at a campground in Quebec. Tore a hole in the black metal just above the waste valves. Fortunately aluminum skins and tanks are fine.

Looking for recommendations for a dealer to do the bodywork as well as some minor warranty repairs.

We are full timing and will be traveling south through midAtlantic, Carolinas and onto Florida from October through December.

Colonial is booked until late November and we will be way beyond NJ by then.

Anyone have experience with Tom Johnson in Marion, NC for body work on their AS?

I welcome any other experience-based recommendations for qualified repairs in the Southeast.

Thanks, Allen

I also recommend Out of Doors Mart.
Make an appointment since they are always busy!

Don Johnson RV is not an Airstream dealer so they will have to get the special color material from a dealer. ODM had it in stock when I needed a piece to make a repair.

Another code of confidence for ODM in Colfax. I think they can do about any repair for an Airstream. We bought ours there and have always been pleased.

ODM does first rate work. IMHO, equivalent to what you'd have done at Jackson Center. An added advantage is they have a huge stock of parts. Give Mike Taylor a call at 1 800 636-2267. NO, I do not work there, but they have sold me two Airstreams and taken terrific care of anything I've needed done. Barry

What BAB said. They replaced the curbside rear lower curved segment on my 25. When they were done I couldn't tell it had been replaced. But do make an appointment.

I concur that ODM can do whatever you need, but the question will be "when?"
