Tsunami front end damage

Just had a deer take out the passenger side headlight area on our 2004 Tsunami. No one hurt but the deer so we are thankful. Most of the damage is fiberglass work, but it did destroy the headlights on that side. Any help finding a place that can get parts and or fix.
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried an RV dealer for the headlight? That would be my first stop. I would get a quote for them to possibly fix the rest of the damage then go to an actual fiberglass place and to a body shop. See who can fix what for the best price.

Thank you. But being an 2004 didn’t know if anyone had heard of aftermarket options.

Often times these headlights come from the automotive industry. Like say a Dodge Neon.

Correct. Tail lights from the Ram pickups are common on some RVs. Make sure you get a QUALITY replacement for everybody's safety. Some vendors, or even dealers, will push for LED or HID when they can in fact be very dangerous due to the glare given to oncoming traffic.

There are many RV Salvage yards. You can find them with an internet search.

While the Tsunami is no longer in production, the Forest River Diesel Division might be able to help you with the part numbers. Try contacting Randy Alwine at (574) 327-2195 or ralwine@forestriverinc.com. Give him the last seven digits of your VIN, and he might be able to steer you in the right direction.
