Banana wrap or rear quarter panel?

Newbie here with a 1990 300LE Classic Airstream motor coach. Had a contretemps with an immovable object while backing up. The aluminum bumper is pretzeled and what would be called the right rear quarter panel on a car (the plastic piece with the side marker light in it) is toast.

I think I can straighten the bumper, but I'll need to replace the plastic piece. Any advice on sourcing one?

Thanks,
Sid

Welcome to the forums! Nice looking rig! But...Ouch! Sorry to hear you had a "run-n" with an immovable object. Surely some of the other coach owners will come to your aid in finding the piece you need...

See you down the road!

Welcome and bummer about the incident. I think Inland RV sells the pieces you need. If not, keep looking around, you'll find one someplace.

Nice looking MH btw !

Had a similar meeting with a walking stump. That's right, it ran into ME! Anyway, got all the parts from Airstream. Couldn't straighten the bumper though. Got a new one of them too.

Ah Grasshopper, If a bumper falls in the campground, and no one is around, does it make a sound?

Oasis RV in Tucson, an AS dealer, just replaced my banana wraps in the back. The rivets can crack the plastic over time. Or the owner can back into stuff It was not a difficult repair. Inland RV is also a good source.
