Suggestions for hail repair

We received hail damage on our '13 International Sig in September. The repair estimate is a little over $23k, but the service center does not want to do all of the repair.

So, I'm interested in hearing recommendations for competent repair facilities in Texas or New Mexico.

Anyone with experience getting panels replaced in these states?

Thanks for your response.

Holiday RV in Albuquerque is an Airstream certified facility. Those dimples do tend to work themselves out somewhat over time.

Hail damage

I also had hail damage from a storm in Texas. My damage might be twice what yours was. Can you tell me why couldn't the service center repair yours. I'm assuming that we are talking about the service center at Jackson Center. I dropped our Classic off three weeks ago for repairs. Let me know! I hope everything works out for you.

OK U can have a body shop do the repairs just like they do on a car. I have done this myself and also had a truck body shop do the last repair for me. If U were to see my trailer U would not know I had it repaired and painted. Also the job was a lot cheaper than having AS do it. But I can tell U if U R going to have panels replaced do not have a dealer do take to AS. The dealer will use the pop rivets that can b shaped and trust me they will leak of on the caps of the trailer. As for side damage pop rivets R ok.

Schoochie, it's the local service center, not Jackson Center. The roof panel suffered hail damage & the local guy does not want to do that part of the repair ... Not sure why, but I'm now trying to find someone else to do the work.

My preference would be Jackson Center, but it's not gonna happen ...so ...

T reson U let Jackson center do it is because they have the equipment to buck rivets and the dealers do not do buck riveting. That is how Ur trailer was done when new. Buck riveting is the only effective way to do a good seal.
