2nd trip, 1st oops

I think I went a tad too big with my very first trailer.....

Took her out to another state park this past weekend. Unfortunately we got a late start and arrived after dark. Road was very narrow in the campground with lots of trees. Taking a turn the back tires went off the road a bit, didn't take it wide enough. Trailer leaned and scraped against the tree. The tree took off my drain gutter above the rear slide out. also crimped my main gutter. I inspected the roof and didn't see any noticeable roof damage.

Is this a part I can order and replace myself? I'm not too handy but it appears to have been just be glued to the side. I think I can uncrimp the main gutter with some pliers.

I was able to measure the strip, the factory cut it and sent both pieces at about half the shipping. PM me with the the length you need I have the extra piece in my shop and can check shipping cost if it's long enough.
