Default Can you Fix Fiberglass?

I had a bad windstrom a couple of days ago and it caught the fiberglass camper to my Rampage and put a small chip/crack in the top.

I was wondering is there a way to fix fiberglass? Can I do it myself or do I have to have it done somewhere?

I can take a pic if that matters?

You should be able to patch it with fibreglass resin.

You can almost certainly fix ANY fiberglass damage. If you take to a pro, it should even be presentable if not impossible to notice...

I have seen amazing work on banged up boats, camper tops, and vehicles. Good luck and ask who is the best in your area, perhaps start with calling a few marinas.

Some resin should be fine. It's basically an epoxy.
