Hail Damage!

Hello guys, new owner of a 2013 CTS192RD travel trailer. I traded for it, salvaged by a dealer because of severe Hail damage on passenger side. I need to know if anyone has any idea who to contact for replacement panels for this thing and also where do I find the vin number for the unit because the sticker was also destroyed by the hail.Live out here in Southeast Colorado, middle of nowhere. any help would be appreciated. thanks

out ofsorts, You didn't state what type of siding you have, but I have worked on repairing siding on a truck camper I redid, anyway go to www.hemetvalleyrv.net, they cut the siding for me and it fit just right....Also Zapmeta access denied is another one...Good Luck, let me know how your doing....The main thing as you remove things, is to keep everything square and take your time

The north Texas hailstorms of April 2016 pelted our Forrest River POC single axle TT

Took 7 months to repair and the repair was not acceptable (pure crap) so we traded for our rbsl.

The hail storms required replacement of our house roof, 12 windows, totalled 2 of our 3 outside cars (still drive them) and made the TT look like a golf ball with all the dimples.

We have a garage. What was in it? 2 1970 VW's. Westfalia camper bus and a bug.

I know my priorities. They are replacement insured via Hagerty but they are special.

yes, my bad, i forgot to mention it is aluminum panel siding. so yeah mine is pretty boogered up from that hail storm, bought it like that, actually traded for this unit so im just getting to know it and start tinkering with it. Took forever to find a damn fan blade for the a/c unit! camping world $8.00. yay. still having trouble finding the shroud though, gonna have to order that online i guess. and I will check out the links given, thanks Nevada!

outofsorts, aluminum panels, you will like what you see on their web page, you should be able to find your design and they will bend and cut what you need, They ship where you are, the only thing was the shipping charge, they box it so nice that, its comes without any dents....and it costs

I see that Nevada. thanks for the info. now the only other thing I gotta worry about is getting the vin number sticker for this thing. ya know whats funny? I cant find a sticker with the full vin anywhere. something stinks i think. Only thing I can find is the last 6 stamped on the frame. atleast thats there i guess.

outofsorts, How about the DMV, even if you didn't get it on the Sale slip, if it has plates, try them....Good Luck

no plates, the guy i got it from got the unit at an auction house.And camping world (dealer) is a joke for customer service. I called Keystone/Dutchmen, they said to call a dealer, I call the dealer they say to call the manufacturer. Neither of them had any answers. its a mess guys

See if there is a yellow sticker on the door, it should have the VIN on it too. Also IIRC the full VIN has to be stamped on the frame by law. It may be there, just partially painted over.
