Fifthwheel cab dent

So I was on vacation last week and got in to a rush to get out of a fuel station when I turned a little too sharp. I managed to make a dent in my cab. Has anyone had this happen if so any idea on cost to pop the dent and paint it? It's just the corner of a c pillar.

I don't have a photo on me. It's about a oval 2 inches by 6 inches dented in between 1/2 - 1 inch. I can try and get a photo tonight.

I did the same with my 2008 F250, I was told that you can't pop that dent out due to the location of the damage. The body shop was able to fix the damage on mine for about $350.00.

I was told that they usually have to take the back glass out and on the 2008 and newer trucks it is impossible without breaking the glass. The rear window is a $1500.00 piece. Thankfully they were able to repair mine without taking the rear glass out.

I just had my back glass removed without it breaking with safelite... I had a tree root come thru my slider, all they did was take a hot knife and go behind it and cut the glue. Came right out. The Dent I have no clue about tho

Saw a truck the other that had a dent on both sides, they matched.
Could make other side match, LOL.

Short bed or long bed. Happens alot on short beds that don't have slider style hitch.

Those are called clearance dings. It's an added option when you purchase a 5th wheel.
