Damaged “skirt”

Wife hit the metal skirting on our silverback. Anyway to replace or find a replacement? Local auto body shops won’t touch it because of how thin the metal is.

Hard to tell without a pic, you may start by contacting FR or your dealer for parts ref or looking online at the RV dismantlers for used parts.

Prior TT I was able to replace the damaged skirting, took a picture, sent VIN number and length of the skirting to the local dealer who sourced the part from the manufacture.

Cost for the skirt was $58 but the shipping OMG, $250. I did find a local body shop who was willing to repair the part but that was going to be $600 so half the cost to replace it.

Part came in uncut so I needed to cut it to fit and length just used the old skirt as a template it was easy enough to do.

I damaged the skirt on my Cedar Creek one time and ordered to part from the factory, I don’t think you can do that now. It wasn’t cheap, the shipping was the problem. If you are ever by Topeka you could stop by Amish Family RV. It doesn’t take long to replace it

I bet any good metal shop could cut one for you, then have an auto body shop paint it. It's just a sheet of aluminum.

My TH lost an argument with a Kubota and needed a new skirt. Local independent RV repair place had what I needed and cut it to length. Local paint supply custom matched the paint and put it in a spray can. $85 total for everything.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
