I guess you guys are different than me. I would have it fixed professionally because at resell, the new buyer is going to think 'what else did they cheap-out on'? Unless, the original poster can do a professional job.

When we had our previous '08 Dynasty in for service, an identical Dynasty came in for repairs. The fella's wife was in a fuel station and turned too sharp and scraped a pole on the rear passenger side which crushed the exhaust extension along with scraping the fiberglass pretty bad.

At the end of the day, I went to pick up our coach after it was serviced and the 'damaged' Dynasty was fresh and new, you could not tell that it was ever damaged. They did an excellent job fixing the fiberglass and replacing the chrome extension. The paint matched perfectly and all completed in one day.

Safe travels and quarantine!

There are fiberglass repair guys that come to boat yards and RV parks that can repair in correctly and spray gelcoat to match. Get on the phone and internet and find one and do it right. I have seen guys come into our Az RV resort and do this kind of repair. There is one sitting at home right now waiting for your call and a chance to make 200 or 300 bucks.
