    Simpsons of Gt Yarmouth have had a look at this pic

    And concluded of course that we need a whole new bumper (even though we have the broken piece)
    Any idea what it would cost?
    Do you agree? If not where should we go?

    I would try and find a good independent body shop and ask them if they can repair it first. If not, be prepared for a large bill: I seem to recall that the rear bumper for your vintage Hymer B-class (and mine!) costs something over £1000.

    A good body shop will be able to rebuild that if you have all parts with no problems and my even be stronger when finished.

    I used to be a mobile car body work repairer, until I retired.
    The damage to your bumper is repairable.....ask around for a recommendation for a good
    car body shop or, as I was, a mobile one, such as Chips Away......but try and find an independent operator
    as these tend to be better.
    You should be able to get that bumper of yours repaired within one day at a cost of £200 - £250.

    I thoroughly recommend Specialised Autobody Services in Norwich. Take a look at their website, you can also get a quick estimate online. Talk to Ivor, his work is top notch.

    Mine pulled the corner off like yours, but not around the light. Local bodyshop fixed it, think it cost around £300, a new bumper was over £1500 and at least a 6 week wait.
