The length of the trailer has nothing to do with the end shells.
You "cannot" drill out all the rivets.
If you drill out all those visible to the eye, you won't move or remove the panel. The panels are held in place with bl;ind rivets.
In your case, you would need to remove the panel below the rear window, the curb side lower panel and the curb side window sheet. Then and only then can you get at the blind rivets.
Then, was your trailer made at the same plant as the salvage trailer? If not, the panels won't interchange.
Then, if the salvage trailer year is more than a year or two from your coach, again, the panels won't fit.
Now you know why most people bite the bullet, and buy the correct panels that will fit. At that point, the only risk is their ability to properly install the panel.
Saves a lot of wasted time, and, lets you have a smile when your having that beer.
