I replaced all my doors with 1/2" birch faced plywood and urethaned it. I square cut the edges and it looks a lot better and is lighter than the old doors. Pictures are available under Modifications/Preparing a 1991 Scamp

Yes. A 13' standard only takes half a sheet of hardwoord plywood. If you wish to use the other half on the hatch covers, that'd be fine too I suppose.

When we got our 2002, most of the hatch covers and doors were badly swelled, a few corners were starting to crumble and the wardrobe door was abused with various perforations from the PO.

1/2" oak plywood and some layout, table saw, light sanding, urethane. Fairly straightforward project and the buyers of that 2002 saw it as premium upgrade and were delighted in it.

Cut a piece of wood to size, cover with batting for a pin cushion, wrap in contrasting upholstery fabric. Use this door to hang notes, pictures, etc.

You get the idea... have fun with it!
I love your idea!!

I went to Home Depot and bought a 4x8 sheet of 1/2" oak plywood. Had them cut it and now I've got a winter project. Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

Good move Jon.

As for finishing, the water based polyurethane is very forgiving and easy to work with. I used oil based on my replacement table, because it is more durable. It took three coats with 36 hours between to dry. It has been about two weeks and it still smells inside the trailer. So the oil base is much more of a time commitment.

Now I am working on a gas line for a heater install. I will post photos and diy info when I am done with everything.

Good luck with your project.

Tom, I think you misunderstood… I am not redoing my cabinet doors with real wood, not now at any rate. Not enough time these days, and no decent place to work.

I actually sent you the PM inquiring whether the original door under the front sofa might also be available, since I saw you kindly offered your old closet door to the OP. I also want to cut a second door in the lower closet of my Scamp, and, Donna's excellent suggestion notwithstanding, I'd like all the cabinets to match. The smaller door will be large enough for the opening I plan.

Best wishes with your project!
