Second that... when I got my Scamp
new last year I felt the same way.. I thought the handle in the middle of the door would pull out.
But within a month the door closed much easier.
If you do add spacers I would make sure I could remove them when the seal gets broken in.
And of course, be sure and use both handles when pulling the door shut from inside (it is absolutely a two hand operation). And from inside or outside, always turn the handle to the open position and THEN close the door, then release the handle while keeping the door closed.
When closing the door from the outside, I always give the door an extra push near the latch. I find that sometimes the latch is not fully engaged until I do that and I think that the problem that some people have had with the door opening in transit is partially because the latch only gets partially engaged.
