Here is the location we are considering and so I don;t think curve is a huge concern.. Currently this section is in pieces and is being rebuilt anyway so now's the time to do this..

And the door... remember the door? Horrible. It was missing locks and had been broken into with a crowbar and then repaired with a hammer. Garys made a new one and it's installed. Gaskets still need to be added and adjustments made but it FITS and latches and locks. It's a miracle. The door was the deal breaker on this rehab.. the rest of this tuff we know how to do but the door was a giant challenge. The old door could not be reskinned but had to be built from scratch. Once we dug in to remove the lower curbside segment we discovered a nightmare repair...

This trailer has been in an accident and the door and lower front segments rebuilt - not very well. The front had been restructured with angle iron and ribs sistered in. The frame was tweaked. Who puts angle iron in an Airstream??

When the door was fixed at the same time as this other stuff they cut it down a little because they didn't make the front repairs properly and the old door didn't fit in the tweaked frame.

The frame is straight now and the front rebuilt, today we have a door.

The window is a good addition. This was added so that you could see out on that side of the trailer.. There was a big 'blind spot' there
