I've thought about this issue and have reconsidered.

I'd secure my deposit back and look elsewhere for a trailer. There are only a few dealers I'd trust to replace a panel(s) and only two repair facilities OR the factory and that is asking a bit much for someone who wants a new unit - not a new previously damaged unit.

Good Luck

Bud

Curious, did you ever find out the story behind the damage?

Personally I'd reject it. If not negotiate a big discount. Also ask if they are repairing it with the original type buck rivet or the olympic rivet often used. It's value quite likely goes down with the olympic rivet repairs!

Reject it. Period. Depending on the dents, they either put a panel over the old one, or they shave off the rivets, remove the panel and place a new one in it's place and they don't reseal it from inside since the interior of the newly attached panel is not able to be reached without removing the interior trim and interior skin.

Get your deposit back and keep looking or order another one, but don't take this one unless you can live with the dents along with a major discount (more than the standard 19% off list).

Even if you closed the deal and you were delayed in taking initial delivery I would demand to have the trailer replaced with a new. There is no way I would drive off the lot with that trailer regardless of their promise to repair and stand behind it for the next ten years. I would also caution to check the serial number on the "new" replacement when it comes in.
