20 Ft 1972 Argosy

I just picked up a 1972 Argosy 20 with a great condition interior. The outside is good except for the paint which I will start on shortly. Right front quarter panel has a small dent and wrinkle which looks easy enough to repair. The only puzzling thing is the entry door. While it appears to be in great shape, it has lost some of it's curve on the side that opens. Before i get in and screw it up, I was wondering how to put the curve back in the door or what to look for that might have caused it.

If you mean the door is somewhat "flatter' than it should be, that's not too puzzling. The door probably either came unlatched while the trailer was moving, or was caught by the wind when camping and smacked the side of the trailer at the end of its swing. I've seen threads about reshaping "bent" doors (and even though it's straightened compared to the desired shape, that's essentially "bent."
