Try English autos. On the n125 His name is Wayne . Tel +351912400228. He did a great job for me last year. They even took us down the coast for the day. And picked us up again when they had done the work. Oh the they are down near Albufeira in Portugal

You can also try Nigel at Algarve motorhome services, whilst he’s more a mobile fix it chap, he will doubtless be able to point you in the right direction for a body shop.
A very helpful chap! Tell him Dave from Mikkis reccomended him!

Thanks both... went to English Autos very helpful and he spoke to someone who said we are better to go to Spain nearer the dealer to get some parts? So looking for someone near saville or Cadiz in Spain?

11yrs, but many years a tugger.
Does it need repairing replacing now ? Can it wait until you have finished your trip. Taking it anywhere now will almost certainly mean a long wait for any parts. :gum:

Hi Supermike we are travelling for 5 months so we are prepared to wait a bit... have been told would only take couple of days to fit parts... so if it was 2 weeks wait for parts it’s doable... it’s such a pain getting in and out of the cab plus we need new bathroom window as didn’t mention as driving 2 days after the accident the bathroom window flew off into a van... not bad the best starts... so not keen on doing any free camping as wouldn’t want to leave van. Not deemed suitablely locked with tape over the window. So would be happy if window and door done at very least just window. thanks

That’s the trouble Vanessa, I suspect that obtaining the parts will run into months not weeks. Whatever, good luck it seems you need it.:gum:
