We will be picking up our Egg soon and want to keep it looking as nice as possible. How do you protect the side of your trailer when you open your door and it 'gets away from you'? Really don't want to put dingies on the side from not paying attention. Need a simple fix that doesn't require major thinking. I'm not very mechanically inclined.
Thanks a bunch,
Pat

Our trailer, a 16' UHaul Vacationer, has a rubber pad on the door that acts to protect the sidewall if the door flies open. I would think you could go to a place like Home Depot or Lowe's and pick up a rubber stick-on door/wall protector used in homes. Most are beige or white and would just stick to your door and/or trailer wall. I think I might put two opposite each other to make sure nothing bashes together. When you open the door all the way, check to see where a contact point would be and place your protectors at that spot.

You can also get a door fastener for RV doors that keeps your door open without flapping. This is a plastic piece that hooks to the wall when you want the door to stay open. You can check RV supply places for this part.
