Best source for parts (fender) 291 and hail damage ?

Hi everyone -

This is our second summer with our 291 and we love it so far. We mainly tow it back and forth to a lake on the weekends to camp. Last Friday night we had the front passenger side tire come apart on us and it damaged the metal fender.

I can most likely fix this myself, but was wondering if anyone had suggestions for places to buy parts online. I did a few google searches - but didn't have much luck, all the websites wanted to sell me the outside plastic skirt, which survived.

Our local dealer (Denver) is RV America, does anyone have experince with them? We bought the trailer used.

Also - two weeks ago we had a hailstorm roll through up at the lake. The hail was roughly 2" in diameter and came in after dark when we had the fire going. Everyone is safe, but our campers took some pretty nasty hits. One camper was totaled by the insurance company last week. There were 4 broken windshields on our groups tow vehicles. Our camper has about 4 spots on the roof that I can find where the hailstones broke the roof underneath the rubber coating. I turned it in on insurance yesterday and am waiting for the appraiser to call. Anyone have similar experience, how much should this 'fix' cost, and what should I be looking for in a settlement?
