If you can access this area from the inside you can just push it out. The skin wants to go back to its' rolled configuration. I recently had a visible dent just cure itself.

Thumbs up Paintless Dent Repair

We had a very large dent to the left of the tail light and opted to go with mobile paintless dent removal. Here are our results, which took about 20 minutes. It's as perfect as it's going to get outside of replacing the panel. If you're ever in the Tampa, FL area and you have some body work that needs to be done, call Ryan at Elite Dent Repair. We called yesterday and he did the work at our campsite today for an extremely fair price.

That feeling when you put a huge dent in your new Airstream... ugh

The title of this old thread has always confused me.

Would one ever use a “painted” method on an Airstream?

Its just "marketing speak" for "We don't need to repaint the whole vehicle after we pull the dents out without drilling holes and we don't have to use body filler compound by the bucketful."

Reminds me of the old question by George Carlin--"Why do we PARK on the driveway, and DRIVE on the parkway?"

George Carlin absolutely loved to have fun with words. His "Brain Droppings" book was written not long before he died, and is an absolute hoot! I truly miss his talents...

Let's not forget the "Hippy Dippy Weather Man" bit either...

I removed the dents from my trailer by tapping lightly between them with a rubber mallet. By tapping on the high spot, the low spots returned to their former place. I was able to remove a small crease by gentle pulls on hot glue tabs. It’s not perfect, in that you can still identify the crease in strong reflected light; but you almost have to know that it was there.
