I have a 61 Deville trailer. It has a piece of the metal on the front side that is damaged. Is there a company that can supply it or replace it?

Its in the front corner...not the greatest picture.

59Bisquik -- That pattern in the metal is called "Mesa" probably 2" -- That was/is a very popular pattern -- Depending where you live, it is still available - I live in the Phoenix AZ area,& can still be found here -- I worked in the mfg of park model trailers & have hung many feet of that metal -- You can replace it yourself -- Take the baggage doors off, & start from the bottom taking trim off - The metal will probably be stapled on, but take the metal off till the good starts -- Keep the old metal for a pattern, if you`re not familiar working with with such -- On repairs such as that, I use 1/2" drywall screws in place of staples -- The metal will bend very easy, so have help - Bill Willard

The skin you're looking for is aluminum as well, not steel sheetmetal.

Thanks for the tips guys. I knew it was aluminum but not sure what to call it...sheetmetal, aluminum siding, skin...etc.

Aluminum Siding/Skin is the most common terms used. It'll be less confusing in the long run.
