2002 Winnebago Adventure collision damage..

Made contact with a soft wall this past wk. and broke some facial
fiberglass. Along with pushing the bottom of the windshield metal
frame into the windshield. As Winnies of this vintage are known
to rust and leak at the top, as mine did, even garaged keep
for 20 yrs. I would like a new frame installed, would require both
windshields to be removed. Possible need to have the frame re-main,
as the old frame could be used as a pattern. No broke headlight or
parking lamps.

I need a repair shop with the expertise to do this somewhere on
the east coast. Has anyone had any experience with such a shop?
As I know this will not be cheap, but would like to finish up
our camping experience with this 20 yr. old MH, we purchased new.

Thanks for any and all help....Tenn.Vol

The way I look at it, whatever it costs you will be way cheaper than a new one. These things are CRAZY expensive now and you obviously like what you've got!

I had rust around my windshield and when having the windshield replaced I took my 2002 Winnebago here to have the frame taken care of - Fortney RV, 11999 49th St N, Ste 105, Clearwater, FL 33762. Phone is 727-575-7989. Did a good job.

Thanks for your reply ptl. One other question did they
cut out the rusty parts and replace with NEW medal and
if so did they replace the entire top metal piece that
hold the glass in??

Thank you again, and it is still not leaking....which would we good!!
