Al, when you called about the door, and I told them the part was NLA, I also told them to refer you to Colaw. If they didn't, I'll have to have a chat with the person you were talking to.

There is no wrecking yard in the U.S. that has an old dear motor home where you could get the door?

Trust me, I've done some searching, as well. Could be all the mo/hos are still on the road? I've seen a couple of the old dears, sitting forlorn behind the barn, not for sale; what a waste!

I too have the same door set up and have been worried about it falling off and disappearing as it has the one latch and flops around a bit when closed. With your new door did you come up with a new solution for securing it?

This is what I did on my old '79 after I lost (and found) my door. Its a little different style, but works the same. The latches are Zip-dee aluminum awning latches readily available.
