Francesca's got it. Looks like the door opening has sagged over time.

About that door lock: Dad was chasing parts for me today and found a kit to repair the lock. He says it has the missing parts from mine, plus new lock and key for $44. We'll see what it looks like when I get home from work this afternoon...

Hoping to spare you what I went through regarding that waistline problem:

Before you get all carried away trying to correct that anomaly, take a look at this thread to get an idea of what's "normal" for a Trillium and/or its descendants. There are pics/links there showing that even on the newest models, that's how they come from the factory.

Here's a spankin' new "Outback" and you can see it clearly there.



It also shows if you take a long straightedge and lay it across the door opening from shoulder to shoulder of the raised fiberglass edge of the belly band. Which I didn't think to do until I'd had the door off three times trying to line the edges up...

Farkles rule- but since you have three holes total, my hide-a-hole sense tells me that the farkle would do nicely for the two on the door, and a nice doorbell would serve to hide the one on the body!

And forgive me if this has already been asked/answered: Has this trailer been painted?.

That pic is the first I remember with the contrasting colors...not that I can remember what I read last week, let alone ten pages/months ago.

Yes, it was painted white in the Dawg House incarnation. I wish it wasn't, but it doesn't look terrible overall.

Clowning again with the beer opener there. I probably will fill and paint the holes. The opener will be on the camper somewhere, though!

Me, too.

One of the things that I like about your whole approach to this project is that it's Perfectly Clear that it's just a trailer- not some kind of Holy Thing!

Looks like your fridge was an after thought. The remnants of a street side logo are visible. Could hardly see it with the vents on.

I noticed that and wondered if they were all that way.

Redid all the gas lines with new copper tubing, and replaced the single outlet under the fridge with a duplex. That's where my converter/charger will plug in.
