Airstream dealer repair vs. Custom shop
I have a '73 Overlander that needs work to remove some rusted frame components in the rear end, and will need to have new parts welded on.
From everyone's experience here, I am curious where you think I should take these major frame repairs to.
1) Would you suggest that I take it to a dealer? I live about one hour away from Can-Am in London Ontario. This might have the potential to be more expensive, but they are most likely very familiar with the trailer.
2) What about taking it to our local auto body shop? They do a lot of repair work on trucks and trailers frames and bodies. Might be cheaper, also right around the corner, and excellent customer service.
3) What about a custom shop? There are a few shops around here that regularly slice and dice vehicles. They may be the most creative at repairing the frame and adding reinforcement or alternate materials.
