Thanks Robert and to all who have offered your ideas and opinions,

I have found a boat builder who will make a new door and repair the door frame. We are going to eat some more Love Bug. I do plan to make the vertical brace for the hinge side of the door, that several have mentioned. Will take the curve from the side of the closet from the other side of the door. Hope to someday add a screen door so it will serve that purpose as well as structural support. Will get that additional piece glassed in befor the door is fabricated.

Thanks all,

Cat

Cathy,

I am impressed! The work that you have put in is amazing. You are well on your way to having a trailer to be proud of. Even more so, since it is from your own labour. Your kids won't thank you for it, but they should.

If your boat builder is going to go to all that trouble, perhaps he could fabricate a door frame that would allow you to replace the existing door with a flat door, such as those available from Atwood. They come with a screen door.

Also:

If the boatbuilder is actually going to make a mold and form the door from/on it, you might hang on to the mold when he's done.

I'd bet it would be worth something to someone else with Scamp door trouble!

Look at it from my perceptive. You have done an amazing amount of work on the trailer since August. Way more than most of us here would ever have attempted to do. Yes you see lots of project photo's being posted but the truth is its the minority here who actually take on sure projects. The rest of us just sit back and go wooooo! In the same time you have almost completely rebuilt a trailer I puttered about with a simple 110 exterior plug - that was a 2 month project for me from purchasing the receptacle and actually installing it and I still have a front overhead bin sitting in my basement since early September that simple needs me to come up with a simple door solution before its installed LOL its a good bet it will still be sitting the basement come the spring!! You go girl!!!
