Proper repair of this tear

Your trailer is kind of wrinkled. What do you want out of it?

Practical use, or a show quality rig?

What you want from the trailer will determine your direction, and your budget.

If it was me, I might strip the interior, roll the dents, put on some pretty patches, use some creative camouflage, polish it up and make it look better than it should. Mine I think used to be a deer camp.

I live in Southern California, there is an old highway called the Rincon and the County of Ventura let's you Boondocks along the road and it faces the ocean and there are mountains. I have surfed along this old highway since 1969. So buying this vintage Airstream is going to fulfill a desire to camp right on the ocean. I am close to achieving that dream.
