Dent repair on 1968 Tradewind

Is this dent repairable without having to replace skins. It is on a trailer I am considering purchasing. After seeing all the repairs done by forum mebers I would like to think I can repair this myself.

Thanks,
s_zamora

The metal can easily be replaced.

In your first photo, it shows that the rear main bow has been some what pushed in about a foot above the floor line.

When the metal is replaced, that main bow should be straightened.
