I'm not sure about your ride but my '73 Airstream required removal of the whole tract to remove the doors. I like the door but am redoing the insulation, wiring' plumbing etc. I used the manual from Secretarial Services as a guide.

If yours is anything like mine, there is a screw inserted in the track just beyond the point of full extension of the door. Remove that screw, and you'll be able to remove your door by sliding it out all the way.
