Re-skin Door on Non-AS Vintage RV

I need to reskin the aluminum on the door to an old custom built (1940's) rv. The door has 1/4 inch plywood wood bolted onto a metal and wood frame, which is then completely enshrouded in aluminum. The aluminum is beaten up and some of the wood paneling has to be replaced. The RV is not shiny like an AS so I don't think I need to use 2024T3 Alclad. I need aluminum that is easy to bend and I wasn't sure whether I should use 5052H32 in a .025 thickness, 3003H14 in a .020 thickness or go with a 2024T3 in .016 thickness. My concerns are durability on a door but easily bendable.

Please let me know what you recommend.
