Need 1994 Land Yacht Door

After doing a lot of work to restore my 1994 35' Diesel Land Yacht, somebody felt they were more entitled to my stuff than me and broke into my motor home. I had the home stored with the batteries disconnected the handle locked and the deadbolt set. The perpetrator started by trying to pry the door open with a crowbar and destroyed the area around the locks (both frame and the door itself), when this didn't work they smashed-out the window and destroyed enough of the screen door to (eventually) find the lever for the deadbolt.

If anyone knows where I might be able to find a complete door (or possibly all of the latching/locking mechanisms, trims, etc.), please reply. I have someone that is going to try to repair it, but I am very doubtful.

That is upsetting.
I keep a close watch on my unit and have installed an alarm on it. These guys don't like working when there is a lot of noise.
The mothership may have the lock and hardware. A body shop type guy with aluminium welder, should be able to repair the door.
What does the insurance say about it??

Your insurance policy would cover that loss.

I think new doors are still available from Airstream..

You cannot buy parts from Airstream, unless, your a dealer, or, your at the factory.

Secondly, I doubt that the door is in stock and would have to be built.

If that's the case, if you wish to order it directly, more than likely you will have to pay for it, up front.

Airstream has franchise agreements with their dealers.
