The fellow in the van fell asleep and caught my left rear quarter...I am thinking of taking it to the factory in April for the repairs or to a factory supported facility in Goshen Indiana.Anyone have any suggestions where I should take it?

Bit far from home. If I may make a suggestion, trim off all loose material and fill the area with expanding construction foam, (Lowes, Home Depot) let set, trim excess and tape it up, just to keep out the weather until repairs can be done.

Not sure if this shop will work. I have used them for various work. Always honored appointment and completion dates. If I ever have collision repair this is where I am going. They are not an RV dealer. Their bread and butter is repair.

Glad your ok! Sorry about the camper.
Honestly, once insurance gets involved, your camper will probably total. The amount of work required to do a seamless repair would probably exceed the threshold of repair for a 2006 models value. You could always retain it and pay to have it fixed elsewhere.
I highly doubt any manufacturer would repair this at their factory. They dont have time or space. I would google search rv repair places close to where you live, if you do end up repairing.
Good luck op!!

Kind of a long way from OP's home area of Ontario though.
Looks like a great place for repairs if someone is close to them though!
