Options for limiting front door swing?
This is a design flaw on our FC23FB. I grimace anytime someone refers to 'engineers' at Airstream. These windows would never pass an engineering review in my business (retired). The window next to the door is indeed an accident waiting to happen, and the rear window is an outright safety hazard to anyone walking around the rear. Sure, one can say 'hold onto the door' and 'don't walk into the window pane', but proper engineering should eliminate hazards through design. End of rant.
A fabric safety strap or cord with detachable clip attached to the door and frame would be the best remedy, as our highest probability of a fly away door occurs at highway rest stops when someone needs to access the toilet quickly. It could be unclipped when full opening is desired.
I would love to reverse the door opening. It would then only open to 90 deg with the awning arms deployed, but that would be no problem for us. A door stop/latch on the awning arm would be simple.
