Interior Door Damage U-Haut 16 VT

Hi All - Our interior doors have damaged corners exposing the wood underneath. Does anyone have a way to fix them?
Thx
Deb

pictures certain would help us help you.

You can do everything from complete replacement of the doors.. we've seen lots do that, to just tonching up with paint depending on the severity of the damage.

The doors are not in bad shape - just missing some of the plastic on the corners. What have people replaced them with. We are trying to stay away from wood - since it's parked in AZ.

I wonder if you could use body filler, then sand and paint. Hard part would be getting a bond to the plastic covering.

We've seen cabinet doors made out of everything from plexiglass...comes in colors! To diamond plate and a very nice mod done with cutting board poly... that comes in colors too, etc., etc. It just depends on your budget or skill level + tools + time. Can be fairly easy to make your trailer uniquely your own.

whoop, that door took a hard knock! Donna D is right, the door material is only limited by your imagination and skill set (or pocket book).
What about using a moldable type of expoxy?

I'm curious why wood wouldn't work in AZ. Heat, moisture?

Norm made some pretty nice doors of 3/8" birch plywood.
