'72 Boler American door issues

I've had my Boler for a week. Still looking everything over and the front door is a pretty good mess. It's got the common sagging issue and seems "full" or inflated at the bottom. It also needs new hinges/parts as there is a lot of rust.

Tips/recommendations for the bulging bottom of the door?

Also, is it enough to get new hinges from Scamp or do you need to get the "fix" as well to help with the sag?

you're welcome! you may have discovered this, but under "search" menu, you can choose the Google search box at the bottom of the menu. You may find more links than the ones I'd saved in my favorites regarding this!

Have you bought your Boler American recently?

I bought it last weekend and I'm hooked! This site has a wealth of information. Which is good as mine needs ALOT of work. I'm getting ready to have the propane lines checked for leaks and have the wheel bearings packed. Anything else urgent you'd recommend? My Boler has nothing remaining on the water system (other than the holes in the sink for the faucet), so I'll be lookinf for tips on getting that set up too

For the door, it might be body sag. Check your frame and floors first. Then look under the trailer at the hinge side of the door. Chances are the small piece of plywood that connects the body to the frame is missing or has come loose.

I fixed mine by installing an aluminum frame around the door. In hindsight I would suggest fixing it utilizing the screen door mod. I'll post a link to all my fixes and mods in your other post New proud owner of '72 Boler, 13'

I've looked at the picture of your door:

It does not really look all that bad.
