Exterior panel replacement

I have dent right rear curbside middle panel. I need it repaired and I've in San Diego,Ca. I need someone besides RV Solutions to repair, they are very expensive and are really the only Airstream repair in area. Any suggestions?

Repairing damaged skin panels on an Airstream entails replacing the panels, and it is fairly expensive.

By comparison, replacing two compound curved panels on the rear of our Airstream cost about $4400 at the factory last year. I don't know how that compares with your local dealer.

Unhappy Panel replacement

Anybody know how long it takes to replace two rear panels? It's been 6 weeks now. Way too long!😬
