Collisions are nobody’s cup of tea. What happens so suddenly and sends your mind into panic mode might end up leaving your RV in dire straits, depending on the severity of damage. Some accidents require only attention to dents, while others may require an overhaul of an entire section of your RV.
Whatever the cause of your RV’s unfortunate collision, you should feel encouraged that in most situations, damage can be mended with some expertise and experience from a professional repair shop.
Structural (Body) Restoration
Going hand in hand with paint restoration, RV body repair and restoration can also include repairing dents, scratches, but is more specifically focused on other types of damage to the body of your RV. When your RV is involved in a collision, there is always the chance that its structural integrity needs attention. Restoring the structural integrity of your RV is the key to the process of restoring your RV back to a safely operating condition. The process to complete structural restoration follows this path:
- Thorough assessment of the damage
- Identifying all the areas that need to be repaired
- Begin the repair process
- Cut out and replace damaged areas
- Use body fillers and other materials to fill in dents and other damage
- Sand the body and paint to match the original color and finish.
The process might look simple when spelled out, but it requires time, well-thought out execution and precision on behalf of the RV mechanics doing the work.
