Patching a hole on a Copper Canyon 5th wheel

Minor accident getting on a camp site. Bicycle in the bed of the truck twisted and handlebars broke the glass in the back window of the truck and puntured through the front end of the rig while making a tight turn. Small perfect hole less than 2" in diameter. Need suggestions on best way to patch. The piece that was pushed in is still attached like a flap of skin. Not sure what kind of bonding materials to use to patch the hole to keep water out. Duct tape over it now for the week while we are away. Truck glass repairs will take place Tues and covered by insurance so not worried about that part.. Just glad it wasn't worse and the kids weren't in the back seat!

Often a marine repair facility will do a nice repair if your 'favorite' RV dealer can't. As a DIY project, might not be such a good idea unless you have a bunch of tools and you know how to work on whatever that nose cap is made from - it isn't necessarily fiberglass - plus match the paint color. Duct tape or an even better material is a thin silver sealing tape usually found in the heating section of Home Depot or Lowe's and will last until it can be fixed. Myself, I would leave it until the summer camping season is over and then get it done when you can leave the trailer for a couple weeks.
