Looking Under the Mouse Fur

After reading many discussions about removing the fur and painting, I came across this problem under my furry walls. How do you fix where Airstream cut the window bigger than it should be and now I have a gap?!? This gab is smaller than some of the other ones I have some across. Please help me.

Make a filler piece to fill the gap.

It appears that the trailers with mouse fur had a sloppy interior wall finish out only suitable for some material application. You may have to overlay entire panels in some areas to fill gaps and make it look decent.

Overlay it with new aluminum?

I found one area to the left of the door with three panels meeting and the cut out for the window too big. The only way to make something like that look good is to remove the window trim and overlay a new piece of aluminum. I opted to install fresh mouse fur.
