You might consider trying paintless dent repair.
Those guys can work wonders and they will come to where the camper is to do the job in a short day.
Good luck

It could have been an accident. We were traveling on a 4 lane hwy in GA when we got to a construction zone. One traveler did not pay attention and his lane played out. His truck tires scrubbed the side of our TT, did some damage, but we did not feel it at all. We would not have known if it hadn't been for some witnesses who flagged us down. But if they did know, karma.

Some time ago I was sitting in the parking lot of one of the big box stores waiting for my better half.....Across the way and up a few cars a chap scraped the door of the car in the space next to him when leaving...He got out and examined the damage, looked around,went back to his car and left a piece of paper under the wiper of the damaged car.....A few minutes later a chap came out and noticed the paper and removed it....I got out of my car and walked up to him and told him I saw it all happen!!!! He showed me the paper...nothing written on it!!!!!!!! Good thing I wrote his lenience plate number down.....Called the police and they took it from there----Charging with hit and run.....A few days later he called me to again thank me for my info and help........J

So sorry it happened to you and they didn't leave a note. It's a shame what type of people are in this world anymore.

I'm sure, like you said, "99.999% of the people on this forum would have left a note".

Looking at the pictures whatever hit your 5er suffered a broken rear hatch window or rear door window. Probably someone with an SUV. One thing for sure, they knew they did it.
I'd definitely find a new lot with cameras at the very least at the entrance/exit. If there were cameras it would be pretty easy to see a blown out window on a vehicle.
The positive side is it appears to be only cosmetic and a gel coat repair is in order. Tape it up for now so moisture doesn't get in.

Our storage last winter had cameras, AND a keypad for entry. Every owner had a unique code for access.

That is good protection, it logs every individual that comes and goes so if damage does occur they know who to blame.

I'd definitely look closely at all vehicles in that storage lot with any damage at the same height as yours.

My TT was broken into and the storage place did have camera which were of no help.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
