Don't have a warped door issue and have read through those posts. Just simply bought new hinge assemblies from Scamp and when I went to put the door back on it seems to have pushed it over about 3/8 to 1/2 inch to the left and door won't close.

There doesn't seem to be any adjustment room per se, so what is my easiest way to get the door rehung?

We had to cancel our shakedown trip to Sedona this weekend due to the door issue and I need to have it ready for a Memorial Day trip on Thurs, so any advice is much appreciated.

I'd call Scamp and tell them your problem - they may have a fix for you.

Thanks Jack, I have Justin at Scamp on my call list.

I went to the Yahoo Scamp Group(thanks N.F) and they have an extensive set of posts on door alignment. I am actually making progress by flipping the bottom hinge to the top and vice versa, and have the door fitting. Still need to pick up some washers, longer bolts and shim the bottom hinge (one of the Yahoo suggestions that seems to work) to see if I can get it to align even better.

I think I'll pick up some washers to add behind the stock bolts and acorn nuts on the inside to spread the stress better and not catch the hide. Should help to keep the holes from spreading as well, which seems to be a big contributor to door sag.

Still fighting it, but there's light at the end of the tunnel.
