You brought up something that makes me think of another point Jon. Not that it makes a nickel's worth of difference but that design.... Laminar Airflow. Out of curiosity, I'd LOVE to know if that will/would make a difference in gas mileage because you have now created an airpocket and will interrupt what aviation engineering calls "Laminar airflow". Then there's been arguments stating whether to leave the tailgate up or down. So, it may create a pocket of air then ride over it as they say "tailgate up" situations do. Anyway...just an interesting thought to me.
I believe the larger Casitas do this? I like the flat door personally! It would SURE eliminate a lot of the "seal" problems the rest of us face.
As far as "strengthening" the curved doors, someone in our Scampers group made a magazine rack from oak and built it into the door which also structurally keeps the "curve" there.... very neat and looked very professional! (More weight
