A professional paintless dent repair guy would only charge $100-$200.Why would you even mess with it?.They may need access behind the dent but they will advise you when they look at it.

If they need access, they may elect to remove the inside panels, OR they may elect to drill small holes in inconspicuous areas inside of the trailer to insert tools.

I am sure they will talk to you about an agreeable process.

A guy 10 minutes down the road, who works at an auto manufacturing plant repairing dents in new cars used a pneumatic puller to remove the dent in the panel. It's barely noticeable. The stone guard didn't turn out as well but I can live with it and it would be a lot easier to replace than a panel. Click image for larger version

The panel looks great! And I dig the Gerry Cheevers mark you decided to go forward with on the stone guard 😀

For anyone interested, here's where you go for the tools. Good YouTube on the subject also. I'm going to work on several places using the mini dent puller. Two dents and the puller/supplies are paid for.

Refer to my recent post to see how I removed a dent. Not sure it will work for you.

I got hit with a shopping cart with an expensive car some years ago. I was skeptical of PDR but they only wanted $50 vs about $500 for repair and paint, so I thought what the heck - if it doesn't work I'm only out $50. I dropped it off and headed for a coffee shop. Before I could take my first sip they called and said they were done. It was a flawless. Definitely my goto guys now.

They hot glue a stud to the car, and then hook a weighted pull tool to the stud. Then they have a chemical that dissolves the glue withou messing up the paint. You can buy a kit on eBay to do this. You tube videos.

Paintless dent removal

Foolish to try this yourself as if you mess it up ( and you will ) the pros who charge very little will not be able to repair your work.
Aluminum does not have the memory that steel does.

I have had 100% success on all vintages of Airstream and several aluminum bodied painted automobiles. Never ruined anything nor pulled off any paint. What can you loose? You already have a dent!
