How do I fix a crack?

My pop up got smacked by an unknown person in the storage lot.

Anyone know how I should go about repairing this?

If you don't want to or cannot afford to fix it by having a dealer replace all the panels I would suggest you use Etearnabond tape to seal it up. If you apply it correctly it should stay good for years.
All above assumes lifting mechanism works and hatches open and close ok.

You didn't include if insurance would cover it, what year it is or what it is worth so the question is make it work but a little ugly or make it like new for several hundred dollars.

Thanks. It's a 1996 1207, not covered by insurance. It's just the one corner, in the one spot. I was wondering if there was a ready-made compound or something that I could apply to patch it.

Eternabond might be the ticket here.

Thanks!

I used Eternabond tape an almost identical crack on mine about 6 years ago and haven't had any issues.
