Exterior repair in Tampa Bay area

Had a pickup scrape & dent along door side of 14 Flying Cloud FB. Seems driver thought he was in a thru lane that was really a merge lane except instead of slowing, waiting or stopping when he ran out of road he kept on coming right into our lane. Knocked off his drivers side mirror and left much of his paint color in our aluminum skin.

Not asking for commentary regarding the accident but would like to get recommendations for RELIABLE, QUALITY workmanship to have the entire length of panel below the trim piece replaced and pressure tested for leaks in the Tampa Bay Area. Weve already been in contact with JC but they are booked til mid 2022 and wed have to reroute other travel plans to take it there. Hoping at fault insurance will cover all repairs but also curious as to whether they will cover our costs to get our Airstream to the repair location and other incidental expenses such as cancelled reservation costs while it is being repaired.

Appreciate the advice from those whove had similar experience.

Frankly, with the demise of the JD Sanders facility in Alachua, I am not confident that there is anyone in Florida that can do structural repairs.

If it was me, I think I would see if/when Out Of Doors Mart in NC can fit you in.

Thanks. We were not aware that Sanders is no longer, such a shame. But Out of Doors might be our way to go. Appreciate that recommendation.
