Good idea to add a photo, Bill

Not only does it look like Vickie's are worn down or missing, but you can see where it has started to cut into the upper part of the hinge body in her last photo. Luckily that should not come into play once the new balls are in there.

Vickie, I would definitely get a set of these and install them before I did anything else. Maybe that is all (or most) of your problem. Certainly it's hard to judge the rest of the problems (if they even exist) without the balls in the hinges.

(I was thinking that *maybe* the Perris Pacer hinges did not use the balls, but I highly doubt that, especially looking at that last photo.)

whats surprising is that you could open and close one of those doors enough to wear out that part. In the future.....any lube will help.

I'm wondering if at one time the door might have had a bit of bind in it and a previous owner took the ball out and the spring off the shaft of the bolt... that's missing too.

Here's the parts needed: http://shop.scamptrailers.com/p-334-...-nut-bolt.aspx to do a repair, just remember even if it says SET... it's only for one hinge... you need to order two sets!

Vickie, be aware the hinges for the Scamp are three bolt on the body and two on the door. Your PP are two bolt in both places. I don't know if two of the holes are going to line up in the same place as two holes for the Scamp hinges. If there's no cracks in your PP hinges you may be able to just buy the replacement parts from Scamp, not the entire hinge setup. Only you can tell if you really need to replace the entire hinge.

Well just getting the ball kits *is* simpler, presuming they fit. It's what I'd be trying first.
