NICE!
Not some "off the shelf" RV standard door, but a not quite flat custom design which complements the traditional Scamp identity....KUDOS Scamp!
Constant improvement without diminishing a beautiful and traditional design!

So the new flat door isn’t... :

Wish the video gave a better look at the door, the jamb, and the hinge. Looked to me like the hinge isn’t full length, and because the door isn’t quite flat, it does not use a conventional RV screen door, but still has the Plisse. I’m also very curious how the door itself is made- what kind of core it has.

Agree it looks well-integrated, and it appears to fold back almost 180*.

I didn’t notice if the new blinds are mounted with through-hull rivets or not. Not would be nice. I’d love to get a closer look at those, too.

I was hoping that dated brown laminate would go away in the deluxe.

Seems like it must be. It's interesting to see that there is no rat fur on the door itself. Seems logical to me now knowing the door area (especially the bottom) gets dirty easily.

At location 6:09 in the video I see what you mean about the hinge not being full length. At this point I think it looks good and if it is structurally sound without those outside hinges, they have a winner.

The structural rigidity comes from the core. That is almost always the problem with the old doors: the wood core is compromised by water leaks, and the door loses its shape.

I’m hoping the new door might have an aluminum and foam core. Since it appears to have a slight bend in the middle rather than a continuous curve, that would be feasible. But not inexpensive.
