Dented end cap

So what are my options here...?
The dent is only in the steel end cap. Is this something an auto body shop can pull ?

I'm not going to install a replacement front end cap , I'd sooner buy a new trailer so I'm looking for reasonable solutions.

auto body shop should be able to fix that. Just like a dent in a fender.

Dented end cap

Were you able to get it fixed? If so about how much?

I have a similar situation. I am borrowing a stud welder and slide hammer to try and pull it out. Haven't started, though.
