Default just noticed a dent!

Looks like someones been past the van in the drive, and caught it with
something..Now theres quite a deep dent the size of a 10p just by the wheel
arch...

Can these be pulled out with those vaccum things that the dent master's of
this world use?

Or is it "get used to dents you have an aluminium caravan?"

Ta again!

They add character.

Is your house in 100% new condition?

Are you?

Easier to just buy some body filer, if its metal, give it a few coats,
sand with rough then fine sandpaper, and your dent disapears like
magic.

If the dent is just unsightly and doesn't really require repair, the easiest thing to do is buy two identical reflectors, stick one over the dent and the other one in exactly the same place on the other side of the caravan.
