Looks like a tall, wild, horse kicked it. That's the story I'd stick with. Don't worry about repairing it.
I agree with what StevenG says.

Have to agree with last 4 posts- I can think of lots of better things to worry about, or spend $1000+ on! Like: an awning, or new tires, or gas, or camping fees, or rally fees, or insurance, a lap-top or flat-screen, etc........

For a show coach probably not. For a user, why not. No funtional effect. Buy it 1200 less for the damage, roll out the dent. You have your 1st "beauty mark". Got that one out of the way, now lets go camping

You would be able to reduce the dent quite a bit if you are talking about a "Pops a Dent" or a "Ding King". Someone above mentioned hot wax. I don't know about that but a hot glue gun and 2X2 short pieces of lumber will do the same job. You could probably reduce it even more by taking out the interior skin and palming it out from the inside and then rolling it out with a roller from a bed frame. You probably will still have a small ding left.

That dent is no big deal. I had a very similar dent , had the panel replaced, and it was in the ball park of what Andy quoted. Came out very nice.

I'd use the dent to get a better price, then have a PDR (paintless dent repair) guy sneak his tools through the tail-light opening and work it out the best they can. It is a camper, not a Pebble Beach show car... it's gonna get dirty, and dinged, fast enough!
