You pictures are the proof that you don't need to be a specialist to succeed. It looks very much like my first bodywork repair with bondo in the 80's
With help and advise from a few people I got considerably better over time. Really all is missing is the final sanding and cosmetic finish which can be done with bondo putty and matching spray paint
, once you have tested that your repair is strong enough not to develop cracks that would ruin your finish. You have got the courage and skills to get that far, I'm certain you can find the patience for the finishing touch one day.
In the meantime, I will continue laughing about your Duck Tape avatar that looks just like your RV pictures: Work in progress, it is already working !
