Repair cost? Storage Doors

I have a New To Me 2003 Fleetwood Discovery 39L in exceptional condition, except the previous owner slightly sideswiped something, damaging 2 storage doors on the passenger side. Are the door skins available from anywhere?
Has anyone had a storage door replaced, and repainted that could give me an idea of what it will do to have a pro repair them?

I damaged a single door on our coach. I priced the salvage door, then discussed these options with the body shop:

1) Repair the door skin
2) Replace the door with salvage (I would buy and deliver to them; about $600)
3) Replace the door with new (REV Group; about $1,000, delivered)
4) Replace the door skin

Option 4) was their suggestion after some investigation, and the way we went. The body shop worked with a local fab shop to make a new door skin. The top edge is folded at 90 degrees, and the bottom rolled, so matching the shape was tricky. The body shop said the tape Monaco used to hold the old skin on was very tough. They painted the door to match the decals (not a problem in your case), clearcoated, and the total cost was around what I would have paid for the salvage door, which they would have had to prep, paint and clearcoat, anyway.

A body shop with a great reputation is your best bet, I think. See what they suggest.

Also: You should add a "signature" to your profile. It contains whatever info you want; most people put info about their coach there, so they don't have to type it into each message. Instructions for adding a signature are here.

So about a grand ea. I don't lock my basement doors for this reason. The stuff inside isn't worth one door. I've got 14....

I made the same mistake, lightly creasing 3 doors. They were repairable, but at a cost of about $600/door (body work plus painting). Insirance covered most of it, fortunately.

The skins are often aluminum and some (many?) body shops won't attempt a repair and insist that a new skin is mandatory. However a good shop has the skills to do it properly. Aluminum body skills are becoming more common as more & more cars & trucks get aluminum panels.
