Airstream, if you brought it to the factory might just put panels over the damaged ones rather than remove and replace.

If it were mine I would:

- Order a new center segment
- Drill out the rivits
- Remove the old segment (more difficult than it sounds because of the sealer)
- Carefully work out the dents in the adjoining segments
- Install the new segment

I'd probobly want it done the same way dmac has listed, maybe even replace both side segments depending on how bad it looked after trying to smooth them out. I'm not a real big fan of doubling up the sheetmetal, but I'm also a bit uneasy about disturbing the factory sealing that is done from the inside.

Anyway you go though, there is no inexpensive fix.

I would get it repaired properly ,dont fool around ,lots of good ideas here on the forums.If insured ,then take it to the best facility with the best reputation ,after all that is why you have insurance .You will be happier when you know its as good as new.

Oasis RV in Tucson. I saw the work they did on one backed into a garage and you would never know. Don't expect much when you see the place, but they do great work.
