Bumper boo boo, still learning

Just a little back up off the leveler blocks so dumb move not to have DW spot. Guess easy fix at boy shop or new one for maybe $250? Just 4 screws

New one . . . assuming ~$250 and easy swap out. A body shop would have a hard time making the old look new, given labor rates these days IMO.

That’s what I am thinking

A new one is closer to $500 now. You'll still never get the bend out of that one, though, so you'll need to replace it.

The bend could be pressed out, I've done it. But it looks like the cover is overlapping the bumper by a lot. Did you perhaps bend the frame too? If that's the case you may want to start at a body shop to help figure out what to do.

Yup, I had mine replaced by Spokane AS 2 years ago and it was $500 plus 1/2 labor to install it. They have to line it up with your old screw holes and drill
the bumber, or vis/versa, I dont recall exactly. It actually took them about 45 mins.

Bent my bumper. Several body shops said they would recommend buying a new one as aluminum doesn't like being reshaped ? has a memory. New one if I remember was $440 shipped from AS to my house.

Been there done that twice to our bumper in the last year. Missed the “STOP” scream from DW. At least that’s her take.

Airstream dealer fixed first one and I fixed second one. Not that difficult with some careful persuasion. My damage was about 50% bent up as yours. Looks good with a few leftover scratches that I can live with.

Dealer fee was $125 ish. Not that bad.

Yup, I'm in this club. Backed into a drinking fountain and had a similar bend. Dealer quoted us about $500 for new bumper plus labor to install. They ended up pounding out some of the dent so the lid can close and now the bumper is just our reminder to always have a spotter when reversing.

Count me in as a member of this most likely sizable club.

Also a member. I took mine off and with a couple of well placed small blocks of wood, I used the Airstream frame and my little hydraulic jack to press the bend out. Not perfect but Good enough . Click image for larger version
