New(used) 2003 Safari 25

I have recently purchased a 2003 Safari 25 that was in great shape. It was until I decided that I could back it into our storage unit without help. Scraped the Left rear upper and lower panels and punched a small hole in the aluminum.
Lesson certainly learned! Looking for the best way to have this repaired. Do I take it to my auto body guy that does phenomenal work on cars, or do I need to take it to an Airstream specialist? I live in central Illinois.

Living where you do, I would take it to the factory in Jackson Center, OH without a doubt. I recently had a lower rear curved panel replaced at Out of Doors Mart on NC. they did a great job, but given your proximity to the factory that might be the least cost option.
