Can One Guy Remove a Parkliner Door?

Yes, but it is heavy.

Can one guy put a Parkliner door back on (by himself)?

Only after getting extremely frustrated and using every magic word he knows!

My door started rubbing real bad opposite the top hinge. Chandler had put several washers on each hinge to try to get the door to seal better, so I removed all the washers and the door doesn't bind anymore.

It still doesn't seal well, so still need a fix for that.

I read that several months ago, but had completely forgotten that others had a door problem. I think the problem is partially from the flexible hinges. And also that they need to redesign the door so it fits better.

I can see why some mfrs (like Eggcamper) use a plain, flat door! An ill fitting door can lead to floor rot, which kind of defeats one of the purposes of molded FG.

Yea tough call on the door fit. We were part of the original post-volleys on that thread mentioned above. I can say that on our PL#35 we have had no water intrusion from the door, which actually, is quite amazing. The door is on the storm side where it is parked, and we do get ~80" of the wet stuff a year so it has had plenty of opportunity!

Probably could remove the door and replace it with a standard framed rv door....if mine went bad I would go that route.

How would you do that Deryk? Sounds like a lot of work!

Ah Frank what in life isn't complicated lol

I bought an RV framed door with screen off of Ebay a few years back when I enclosed the pilot house on my motor sailor. They come in varieties of width and height...and for a larger price could be made to exact size. The hinges would have to be removed but it would look like a door on the egg camper.... the screen door would open outward so you could always get into the closet easily.

I like the way the fiberglass door works and looks, but if ParkLiner ever went out of business and I couldn't find replacement hinges that's the route I would be looking at.

Boy Deryk, that looks like a lot of $ to have someone fit something like that on a ParkLiner! Beyond my skill set anyways.

Yeah, its all on skills. I bet I can come up with something. It wouldn't follow the shape of the hull but I could pull it off if I ever needed to.
