Creating a wider side opening

I saw a Sportsmobile Mercedes Sprinter.
It's side door opened more than an Interstate Sprinter.
After inspection, it appears that the bottom stop shown here
could possibly be moved more to the left to allow the door to open further to the left.
Any thoughts?

Also, I purchased a rear and side screen kit online from the sprinter store for my 2014.5 AI.

I'll let you know how it goes.

The stop can be removed altogether. My 2012 Interstate never even had a stop like that, and the door opens all the way.

I put that stop in mine cuz I didn't want the wider opening letting out all of the cold air. You can actually either remove it altogether or move it to whatever opening size you want.

The newer ones have a spring-loaded ball at the top that snaps in between the two rollers. Since it's spring-loaded, you can force it past the stop and open it fully.
