Door fabricator

I have a door I'm not able to fix myself. Would you tell me who you recommend to reshape a door, or where to look for a new door?
Thanks!!

@shineybullet - it was pinched when I bought it. My guess is after the door sprang, it was letting in water, and this was their solution. We unpinched it, and it looks worse than if we would have left it!!!
I had a bumper that was taken off, and had to be put back on...a 3" canyon cut out of one of the main support beams to make room for 4" residential plumbing that obviously doesn't fit...so they had to jerry rig it under the belly pan (that was also cut to shreds).
I am guessing that it was a tiny house for grandma and grandpa in someone's back yard, and the person "fixing" the trailer knew enough to be dangerous, but not enough to actually fix anything :/

Can you send me picture of the damged door? Or PM me. I might be able to find the time to make you a new one. I have reshaped mine it was 1 1/2" out at the top and bottom. Must have been hit with a big wind. If I can see the view of the door and it's profile I might be able to help you so that you could fix it.

I just can't make out what I am looking at, try backing up a bit and shoot pictures at both angles.

Steve

Maybe these will be helpful. It is really hard to know what you're looking at with out seeing it in person.
Thanks for taking a look!!

So the door is in pieces?
It had a center panel/widow?
I did post a repair video on youtube, titled: Airstream door alignment repair. Shows how I fixed mine. The door do come apart quite easily.
