Storage compartment door repair

Not sure if this is the correct section to ask this question, hope so...

We have a brand new Rockwood 8280ws (with the diamond package) sitting waiting to go camping when the weather cooperates... I just went to check on it and discovered that some 'person' has broken into one of the storage compartments!!!

It looks like they didn't take anything, there really isn't anything to steal, but they made a mess of the compartment door. It now has a nice bend to it!

So the question is, can the door be straightened or will I have to replace it? I managed to get it closed again so the bend isn't too bad but I'm not sure what material the door is made of, so I'm not sure if it will bend back straight again... any ideas?

I'll have to take a closer look at it in the day light, it's dark out there right now.

Any help appreciated.

Gord

Someong broke into ours causing 6500.00 damage, As for the compartment door they tried to get in by prying it but were unable to get in, Just by the little bvit of prying on the door they fractured th integrithy of it and it has to be rewplaced, it is on order as well as our camper door and the other items.

Sorry to hear that it happened. That is one benefit of living in Korea-we don't even have to lock our trailer!
I hope the repairs aren't too expensive.
