Rear corner repair?

Just bought a '92 33' Itasca motorhome. The RR corner has been crunched a little. It's now straight, but loaded with sealant and repainted with spray paint. The corner "cap" running up the rear corner is also a little worse for wear, it has been re-attached with screws. what can be done to fix any of this? It's not real bad, but the rest of the MH looks almost new...

It may be easier if you post a picture of the damage so that the viewers can give you a direction to go. Good luck

Welcome to IRV2. A photo as Bruce suggested would be helpful.

I'm not sure what the outer skin is made from. It's not alum. and I don't know if it's fiberglass or not.... lots of calk and the corner "cap" running up the corner is spray painted and a little crunched. Could this be replaced?

Looking again at the pic it appears that the screws or rivets have been over-coated with something you can't see them on the top half of Pic. I would try and sand a little to see whats under the paint.

The PO put screws on the corner to help hold it down/in place...then sprat painted over repair. I also found a crack in the outer skin when I removed the "wide turn" decal from the rear. It has been calked to the max. I sanded it down a little and am going to put a "Rout 66" decal over the spot. I would like to "tidy up" what the PO did and maybe replace the corner "rib" running up the back corner. As you can see from the pic it's dented and spray painted. I should also add that nothing leaks on the inside.....knock on wood!.....
