Dent repair - '97 Safari 25'

I've got a 97 Safari 25', and I have two small dents, one on front top - above window, and 2nd dent it at rear above window as well. Both are about 6" to 8" around, and are pushed in about an 1" to 2" inches. If this was a car, I would guess I could use a dent puller to fix it.... Please share any advice on this repair. Would I be better off allowing an Airstream dealer to repair this? I haven't gotten any prices yet... I thought I might be able to remove interior cabinets and push the dents out? Thank you!

There are several different methods to get dents out, but it depends on the dent. I have seen videos of people putting dry ice on a dent to shrink it and have it pop out. Others have used suction cups to pull it out. Sometimes the dent will just pop out by itself if left in the sun. The dealer will most likely want to replace the panels with the dent, that would be the most expensive method.
