TREE!!! Know any roof repair places in S. FL?

Took my brand spankin' new Wildcat 5er out for its maiden voyage and cut a corner too tightly under a tall tree branch while parking.

(I know, I know... rookie mistake.)

Anyway, I crunched about 2 feet of the side edge of the roof, tore up the membrane, mangled the rain gutter and underlying structure. If it were only membrane damage, I'd patch her myself, but this looks like it will take skills and time beyond my ability. Does anyone know of a reputable repair facility in south FL that works on RV roofs?

There is one outside Tampa that has a very large repair facility.
Lazy Days RV RV Service and Parts | Trust Lazydays' RV Service Experts

I bought parts there and their parts folks were first rate.
No first hand knowledge of the shop area though.

There is also a large Camping World in the same lot as Lazy Days RV with repair facilities also. Both have very knowledgeable and friendly personnel.

Thanks for the recommendations. I live and work in the Keys and the Tampa facility is about 8 hours away. I'm hoping I can find someone reputable in the Dade/Broward/Monroe area so I can make the round trip in one day. I found a place online: South Florida RV Dealer-Miami-Dade-Ft Laud-Broward-Palm Beach . If anyone has any first hand knowledge of this place I would appreciate the info.

Update: took rig to North Trail RV Collision Center in Ft Myers FL. She's still there. Will update again when she's out.
