Hatch cover to replace heater?

Planning on moving the heater to new location. Any ideas on where to find an appropriate size hatch cover to cover the hole? Other methods?

Leaving the existing cover in place, and just removing the heater, would be the easiest option. It could be re-purposed for access to stowage in your new layout, after lining it with a piece of sheet metal painted black (or silver - the idea is to keep light from getting into the space behind the door and making it look obviously empty), and weatherstripped to keep the weather out. If there won't be inside stowage there, just insulate inside behind the sealed-up cover and install interior skin.

Re-skinning a section to cover the hole is an option, but imho the patch often looks worse than the door it replaced...
