Trailer: Bigfoot 13.5 ft
Posts: 88
I'm doing a complete restoration of our 1987 Lil Bigfoot and need some pointers and door replacement. The door is failry difficult to close (must lift leading edge for it to clear the bottom of door frame). Also, the frame itself has a badly wallowed-out hole for the locking mechanism. The window seals are shot and it looks as if the wood frame inside the door has seen too much water over time. What are some good options for replacement.

Much of what applies to other fiberglass trailers will apply to yours.
Do a search for door sag and body bow, you should not need to replace your door.
Then look at your trailer. Is it the door, the hinges or the body that seems to be the problem?
Some have said replacing a soft floor has helped with door problems.

Too, if the door and hinges are aligned to the body, but doesn't open and close properly... check the trailer frame for cracks. A cracked frame can cause the door to bind.
