For a hunting camper,it shouldn't take that much to make it usable.

To pull probably no. For a hunting camper on property or yo pull a short distance yes. We have had much worse on our lease....

It all depends on what you want to do with it,like mike said,if you are going to park it somewhere and just leave it to camp out of,that will be a pretty cheap fix,but if you are wanting to haul it back and forth,it will need a pretty good bit of work.

i'm going to try to patch it up and get through through the hunting season with it and either give it away or scrap it after season. I have nowhere I can leave it.

I've got some ideas on how to patch it. it won't be pretty but we don't need pretty. it's just a hunting camper.

I was gonna say, you could use a riveter to pull out the dented portions & then seal it up, but it looks like you fared pretty well!
Great job.

And yeah, if you go to get rid of it, I'm sure there are plenty of folks on here who would take it off your hands!!
