16ft Scamp door fixes??

Ive been workin on my moms new trailer a bit since shes bought last week.For some reson the search is hard to use from my phone so ill ask this question.The lower part of the entry door sticks out about 3/4" or so.Im preety handy and imagine this is a normal thing for these.Im try to think of a way to keep the curve of the door a bit more true as it tucks under the side.Obviously id like it to look nice for my mom as well.First idea I had was to build a roughly 10" strip for the bottom of the door out of diamond plate with the deired curve arivit to the door bottom.Ive also thought maybe to grind a bit on it andto lessen the strength a bit then hold it into the desired bend while appling a thick piece of fiberglass to it.I then would have to paint the bottom of the door to match somewhat close.It coesnt take much presure to bend the door under so it fits,everything lines .up fine it just kicks out a bit on the bottom.Any other thoughts or links to what others have done.

Aaron, how old is the Scamp? It may just need a hinge adjustment or new ball hinges to get it to hang correctly. If you stand back and look at the door does it seem to be sitting straight across the top to the set in area? If its slanted it may only be a hinge issue.

Door leaks in Scamps

I have finally found a way to solve the misshapen Scamp doors. I will have to get the product labels from Home Depot to share with you, if you are interested. This is our second Scamp, and we were destined to live with the leaks until we came upon this.
Let me know. I'll also get some pix.
