Same here, plus I don't really wanna cut a bigger hole in the roof, and try to seal it.

Me too. Looks like I'm gonna havta fake it. Fab something... or... replace it.

This is an experiment, sorta. I had to learn a little first. 1) I didn't want to use that cheapo composite glue and sawdust pressformed wood to replace our cabinet doors. 2) I didn't want to actually make real cabinet doors using cabinetry methods, besides, 3) I couldn't convince my hobbyist woodworker father-in-law to make them for me. 4) I was looking for something that I could just cut out, that would be durable and easy to cut, 5) that I wasn't going to have to laminate. I was sitting at our chopping block island in our kitchen mulling this over tapping on a white plastic cutting board when it hit me. This stuff, I thought, was nylon. A few Googles later I found out it is call HDPE or High Density Polyethylene, compressed grocery bags. It comes in white only and specifically is called Sandalite, because it has a pebbled finish on one side. They have it in 1/2, 3/8, 3/4 and 1 inch thicknesses. I opted for 3/8". It cuts with a carbide tipped saw or router. It is slightly translucent and smooth on the back. Folks buy this and cut it up specifically to make cutting boards, that's predominantly what it's for. I measured all the doors in the trailer, which were all shot and rotted, and plotted the dimensions into Adobe Illustrator and discovered I could get all the doors (2 below sink, 3 above sink, 2 above dinette, 1 below bunks, closet door, entire table top, and front of fridge) out of a single 4'x8' sheet. Google turned up Regal plastics in Denver, who gave me the number for Regal in San Antonio. Cool place, tons o' plastic, by the pound. The 3/8" sheet set me back $98, the 1/2" was $198 (and it was much heavier, too heavy IMO). I figure when it comes in and I cut it out and router off the corners and install the hinges & quake latches, I could concievably install lights
IN the cabinets and they would glow :chin

This a.m. was 30 here. Texas weather, if ya don't like it, wait a minute, it'll change. And "yes", you can have the minus temps and snow.
As for trim, I l;ooked at all suggested sites, no go. :sad
