we just got a 1960
tradewind that needs a door, period.
it has a homeade jobber that ain't-a-workin'.
we're going to use this for temporary housing for the next few years and are cash-poor at present but hubbie is a professional carpenter and farm-style welder, very handy but eager to avoid reinventing the wheel.
i know we can't afford a factory(-remake) door at this stage in our lives and our decision to live in the airstream is first and foremost one of necessity, so we're not concerned with top-of-the-line period construction just yet...i gather we've got that death sentence-type dead-end problem here on the trailer, but i know
there's more than one way to skin a cat, right?
any experience, any suggestions?
sources for used doors (or does that just open another can of worms)?what years and models would even be compatible?
wooden alternatives? is it realistic to have our aluminum welding shop down the road tackle it?
anything outside of the whole door box i haven't thought of (i.e. attaching the trailer to some sort of porch)?
new to this whole airstream world (not to mention the world of the internet)...any advice i would TRULY appreciate.
