Damage to Body

I am wondering if there is a way to repair damage to an RV's rear bumper without replacing the whole thing. On this particular unit it looks like in order to replace the "bumper" one would need to replace the entire end cap.

This is a 2008 HR Admiral 34sbd that I am looking at purchasing.

Any GOOD body shop can make it look like new.

That should be an easiy repair. Anything loose and crumbling needs to be removed and filled with fiberglass filler. A little primer and paint and your on your way.

Don`t be surprised at a $1000.00 quote -- I`ve had body work done on RV`s, & it`s expensive -- Even though the damage is small,the paint will have to cover a much larger area for it to look right -- So take that expense into consideration, & good luck -- Bill Willard

And NO, you don't have to replace the whole end cap. You might have a problem getting a regular body shop to quote you though. Most of the ones around here who do four wheelers don't want to mess with any RV.

If it's a dealer you're talking to, he should fix it as part of the deal. If it's a private party, and there aren't any dealer's near by with an RV body repair, consider a boat outfit. They do fiberglass all the time and I used one here in Beaumont, Tx after finding out the only local RV body shop guy had closed down and retired.

And remember BOAT stands for "Break out Another Thousand" and there has to be similar slogan for RV's.

You could also make a stick on trim piece that covers the area and make a duplicate for the other side.
