Is Bambi door smaller than others

Hi there. I'm new to the Forum and just picked up a vintage '62 Bambi. It's in need of some restoration. I 'm trying to decide whether to re-skin the entry door or replace it all together. The existing door is a jalousie window door, but I am not picky about the type of door, as long as it is an airstream door. Given the diminutive nature of this tiny trailer, it looks like it may be smaller than doors on other model airstreams. Is the '61-'63 Bambi door smaller than doors on other models? or are all Vintage 1964 and earlier doors the same size?

The door is smaller then other trailers and probably each Bambi is different as they were all hand made. It's not hard to reskin the door.
