New (to me) truck with damage from dropped 5th wheel. Any idea how much to fix?

I've been looking for a good deal on a PSD for a while and finally found a 2004 (with 36k miles) that I just couldn't pass up. The only problem with the truck is that the guy dropped his 5th wheel camper on the bed. One side was later sideswiped as he had it parked on his street, so he got that fixed for free by the guy's insurance, but the other side hasn't been fixed at all.

Here is a few photos of the damage from various angles.

My question is: does anyone have any experience fixing stuff like this? It looks like, to my untrained and not-a-pro eyes, that it could almost just be pushed back into place, but maybe it's far more complex and will require painting, welding, etc. I know I need to just get a real estimate, but it will be a few days before I pick up the truck so I thought I'd ask on here.

Any idea how much a body shop would charge to fix something like this?


Thanks for any insight here folks. This is literally my first truck ever, so I am so totally stoked about getting in the PSD Club.

I jackknifed my truck and enclosed trailer 2 winters ago and a dented bed side, new bumper and a couple scratches on the opposite side came in at 2200 on the insurance claim to have it fixed.

Just make sure you don't go to the cheapest place. The side of the bed will need to be reskinned and the paint blended into the cab. If they just paint the bed you will notice the paint difference. I know when I had my old trucks bed redone for the same damage they got the skins from a salvage yard for both sides blended all the paint and new decals it cost about $5,000 so divide that in half you are looking around $2,500 and about a week at the shop. Trust me you want it don't right the first time so you won't have to worry about bad paint and chipping or flaking off dull spots or rust even. Oh and they put new bed caps on as well since they broke the clips on the old ones
