Door facing on Bigfoot/other fiberglass?

Does anyone know what the material on the outside of a Bigfoot entry door is made of? Or, anything that might be better, if applicable. Mine is looking pretty bad, so if there is something similar in a similar off-white color to my trailer, I am thinking of trying to take the door apart and replace it.

This FAQ says it is fiberglass. I think Vision Manufacturing, Ltd makes Bigfoot doors and windows.

Hi Ken The material they sometimes use is filon any decent sized R V shop should have some. I rebuilt my door on my surfside and I think I paided about 4.00 Sq. ft It is a off white in color and easy to work with.

Hope this helps

Thanks. I think I saw a sheet at an RV store today, but it was white and bumpy on one side. The other possibility I came up with at Lowe's was Formica. It would probably work, but you have to order a 4x8 ft sheet at $70+.

Home depot also stocks the filon but has the one pebble side about 45.00 for a 4x8 sheet

The Formica, I think will not like the cold it might crack fairly easy
