    Hi can anybody please recommend where I could get repairs done. I caught a low gutter which left a reasonable gouge along the top edge of my new camper van. It seems to be both vinyl and aluminium damage. I live in Dublin but have no problem traveling anywhere to have it repaired properly. Thanks

    Are you claiming off your insurance?

    Maynooth Motorhomes might be a good bet but as Pat was saying are you claiming on your insurance.

    Thanks for the quick response everybody. I most likely won’t go through my insurance (unless the repair cost are surprisingly excessive)
    I’ll check out both suggestions. Really appreciate that.

    I understand only to well Frank...I hit one of my first vans on a pillar in a momentary lapse of concentration. When you get it sorted and are able to get out and enjoy your travels.

    Sorry to hear of your problems Frank,I hope you get it sorted without to many problems.

    I know that you may not want to make an insurance claim but if that is what it takes to make it right then go that way.

    The quality of the repair will have a bearing on the resale value of your motorhome.
