Dent question

I'm looking into buying this airstream. should I be concerned about the dent on the rear corner? Is this a big deal to fix? Thanks

If the dent is a crease from running into something, sometimes it can be pulled out with a suction cup and persuaded by malot on the edge of the crease. It there is stretching of the aluminum, it is not repairable. Replace the panel.

I doubt that the dent you show can be repaired. You will have to have the panel replaced which is a pretty expensive job. The upper panel also looks to be damaged and might also have to be replaced. Only an AS expert can tell you that.

You also can just live with the "beauty marks".
