Orlando Airstream Body Repair Before and After: 2020 Airstream Bambi

May 18, 2023 | RV Repair

Accidents are an unfortunate reality for many RV owners. Even the most seasoned travelers can experience mishaps! This can be especially true when it comes Airstream owners and the delicate aluminum construction of their RVs. And behind every Orlando Airstream body repair we complete, there’s a story. Airstream owners Dan and Marcie Lazear from Windermere, Florida are a prime example of an innocent mishap that could have turned into a lengthy repair. Thankfully for them and their 2020 Airstream Bambi, they found KA RV.  This story showcases our specialized Airstream repair expertise and the exceptional service that has made us the go-to destination for Airstream repair in central Florida.

Dan + Marcie’s Orlando Airstream body repair success story

Dan and Marcie Lazear had everything prepared for their much-anticipated weekend trip in their 2020 Airstream Bambi. To their dismay, an unexpected collision with a tree would uproot their plans. The unfortunate damage to their beloved Airstream had the potential to derail much more than just their weekend.

Initially, the Lazears thought they were going to have to drive the 16 hours from Windermere, Florida to the Airstream corporate repair shop in Ohio to remedy the situation. The long waiting list at the corporate repair center would have meant months before their RV could be repaired. And when they did find an appointment, it would have meant weeks of travel, time away from home and significant expenses. But luckily, they found KA RV Repair & Sales just 50 minutes up the road from their Windermere home.

What began as a stressful situation turned to a stress-free one thanks to our repair team in DeBary. There was no need for an expensive pilgrimage to Ohio – they had expert help around the corner. With transparent communication from our staff, they were informed and guided through the repair process every step of the way. Our Florida Airstream aluminum repair experts executed the restoration flawlessly, leaving the Airstream looking as good as new.

Central Florida Airstream aluminum repair before and after

As you can see in the before and after photos below, our expert team at KA RV Repair made it look like an accident never even happened. On the left, you can see the large dent on the Airstream’s upper rear corner from the tree at the couple’s Windermere home. Our Orlando Airstream body repair team performed a segment replacement post-impact to the corner. With precision and attention to detail, we skillfully execute the aluminum repair at our service center outside of Orlando. The Airstream’s exterior now appears flawless and restored to its original beauty.

KA RV Repair & Sales are leaders in Orlando Airstream body repair and beyond

Central Florida is a haven for Silver Bullet owners. From Kissimmee to Sanford, our many attractions are a draw for these RVers. Central Florida’s RV-friendly infrastructure, warm climate, and year-round camping opportunities make it an ideal setting for Airstream enthusiasts to fully embrace the Silver Bullet lifestyle. Orlando is known for its theme parks tucked into the Lake Buena Vista and Doctor Phillips areas. Celebration is a Disney-esque community, while Clermont’s rolling hills feel a world away from theme parks, yet close enough to drive. Plant Street Market is a favorite in Winter Garden, and Winter Park boasts high-end shopping and a walkable downtown area. Historical downtown Mt. Dora is a great spot to visit, and Apopka has easy access to Wekiwa Springs State Park. Even College Park, Maitland and Lake Mary have shops and restaurants worth exploring.

Airstream enthusiasts take advantage of these many activities by camping at some of our favorite Orlando campgrounds. They often join local Airstream clubs like the Florida Airstream Club to meet likeminded campers. These communities provide opportunities for Airstream owners to connect, share experiences and embark on adventures together. If the great weather isn’t enough, the clubs are reason for these passionate RVers to head to our neighborhood.

A glowing review of our Florida Airstream aluminum repair

Don’t just take our word for it — let Marcie and Dan Lazear’s 5-star review speak volumes. In their recommendation of KA RV, they highlight the exceptional service and craftsmanship we offer. Marcie commends our informative and transparent approach. They praise our shop manager, Chris, for keeping them fully informed throughout the repair process. We encourage you to take their feedback to heart and discover firsthand why KA RV Repair is the trusted choice for Airstream owners in central Florida.


Highly recommend. KA RV Repair in DeBary, FL beautifully completed the replacement of an entire exterior rear corner aluminum panel on our 2020 Airstream Bambi 19CB. As shop Mgr, Chris was very informative and kept us completely informed. So happy to have found this highly professional and Airstream approved shop locally. They employ aircraft aluminum specialists, trained and certified by Airstream, and the pre-formed aluminum panel was supplied by Airstream.

No need to travel HUNDREDS of miles to the corporate shop that’s unavailable for many months in advance. And KA offers their warranty with a hometown convenience. They could not have been any more honest or up front at explaining the process, and we’ve already returned for an additional repair, as well as referred friends.

If you were considering taking your AirStream to the corporate shop in Jackson Center, Ohio, rethink it and talk to KA first. Can’t say enough about our positive experience with KA!! 👍😊

And PS … Don’t miss out on the manatees at Blue Springs just 20 mins up the road!! 😉
