Standard size door?

I have a 89 29' excella. Main entry door came loose while towing, ouch ! Now door is bent. I plan on trying to straighten it out, but if not successful, are all the doors a standard size? or do they vary by size and or year? Any feed back would be appreciated.

Although I can not answer your question specifically, I am amazed Airstream mounts doors hinged on the left side. Guaranteed to be a problem eventually. We have decided to double lock the door each and every time while on the road and hopefully avert an unplanned opening.

KOSM1O,
Thought I had latched and set deadbolt. Much to my surprise, looked back and saw door swinging open. Had not gone 3 mi. Hope I don't have to replace it.

Door straightening blocking instructions were posted on a thread yesterday. Has the photos and instructions in case you didn't see it. I believe I saved it to a file if you can't find it and need the information.
