Collision/Fiberglass repair in Denver area

Looking for reputable repair shop to repair damage to right rear cap of a
Tuscany XTE. Also pulled metal panel on lower right side back about 4 inches but not bent or paint damaged. Coach fully operational and no leaks so believe all damage is cosmetic but needs to be fixed. Would like to avoid big repair shops if possible. Insurance company would make no recommendations for repair facility.

Damaged caused when right rear struck pavement when I dropped rear wheels into shallow ditch trying to turn into a very narrow driveway.
Also willing to travel for quality shop. Any suggestions appreciated.

One of the better marine facilities in the Denver area is Calibre.

I was once told by a trusted friend years ago that if you wanted good body work done on an RV, go to a place that works on boats as they are really familiar with fiberglass and gel coat repair. Not sure about the accuracy of that statement as I've never had a boat and neither have I needed extensive body repair on any of the RVs we've had. But it does make sense and I've heard it from several others after that through the years too.

I do have in my notes that there is another marine and RV body shop in Littleton but there's only one entry I made in my journal of somebody saying that they had body work done there but thought it was just an average experience and nothing special about the work or the service.

Marin's (RV page)

But nothing extraordinary like Calibre has the reputation of being ...Calbre is highly recommended.

I'm sure others will have suggestions too as the Denver area has a lot of good general collision repair and body shops.

I'll second using a boat yard for fiberglass work. Can't recommend any particularly Denver base shop being that I'm Norfolk VA based but my one close encounter with a telephone pole guide wire sliced thru my rear cap as if it was a birthday cake. Local boat yard did the work plus they had a paint booth big enough for my coach. Lots of labor involved but the final product was as if the event never happened.

An example of what to look for when searching for a repair shop -

Not in Denver, but this place in Colorado Springs is very good. We used them for some minor repair and they specialize in RVs. No, I'm not related.
