Let me know if you can't find a "close enough" cover and have to get something made. I can provide you with a detail drawing of the cover for fabrication.

Check out Dyers. Norcold Small Square-Cornered Metal Service Door - Refrigerator Parts - Refrigerators - RV Appliances
I have made panels with my siding brake and trim coil. I think I have a new one like the Dyers Norcold panel in the shop. (somewhere)

Great ideas! This site is great for a newbie like me. I will start a new thread but since you all have great ideas, what would you suggest for bunk bed supports? Mine came with everything for top bunk missing....? Thanks ahead of time!

Here's a link to the manual which has Elixirs phone number in it; the part number for your cover is shown too.

Well, since you mention it, I was going to take some pics of my front bunk support mod but have not had a chance. I have been busy finishing up repairs to my new-to-me old Scamp and getting it ready to go camping next week. But I will try and describe it. I wanted to accomplish two things, opening up the lower bunk by moving the passenger side support over and adding some width (front to back) to the upper bunk. The Scamp has about a 5” gap between the bunk and bathroom wall with the bunk raised. What I did (which turns out to be way over engineered) is rip a 2X6 down to 4 ¼”, screw a 1X4 to one side of it flush with the bottom forming a “L”, and then screwed a 1 ½” X 1 ½” light gauge angle iron to the other side of the 2X6 to carry the bunk itself. Holes are drilled in the angle iron for the bunk support screws to stick through. At the ends of the 2X6, set back 3”, are 1X4 “legs” attached with a standard door hinge. The legs have approximately 7 degree angles cut on the ends so they splay out tight to the outside walls at the bottom when set up. This does not interfere much with the bottom bunk cushions. Note that the bathroom wall and the little wall extension at the exterior door prevent these legs from slipping out and off the lower bunk. It works fantastic and I had two little girls, ages 10 and 11, sitting up on it at the same time playing last weekend and it did not move at all.

If/when I do it again I will do something different and not nearly so heavy. I am thinking about a support with the same legs and vertical 1X4 but a 1X bottom with a piece of 3/8” plywood glued/screwed under that sticking out to carry the bunk. Should be about half the weight if not quite as strong, but still strong enough. My daughter was very happy with the additional 5” of bunk and said it was not only easier to get on but she “did not feel like she was going to fall out”.

If so the cover may have VT-24-1 stamped on it. I found a replacement on a tent trailer.
I found a VT-24-1 in Winnipeg:

If you can find a dometic cover that fits then it is very easy to give it a couple of coats with a spray bomb. I did have a very close colour spray to the 80 Trillium and I did post it on this site somewhere now It's just a matter of finding it.

I can make you a drawing if neccessary, if the above doesn't work.

Thank you peatle and Dave.... I'm still getting organized with what I want/need, making the phone calls, research and list. Regardless I will need this cover.... Almost ready to order or adapt! I did find the thread with the colour matching info.

Thanks again!
Bee
