Replacement options for pleated door

I have a newer airstream model using the plastic pleated accordion doors. Has anyone found good commercial substitutes to sliding wood pocket doors that work well with the arching ceiling in the trailer? The current plastic ones are either half broken, or don't "lock" flush to the wall in any fashion, or remain "locked" in place. It would be nice to find a pocket door set that also has spacers or vents are the top to allow A/C air through when in use. I'd like to try and replace both my accordion doors with nice poet doors this season.

Thanks for your thoughts and feedback.

We had the original vinyl accordion door in the Argosy. Went to a fabric store, picked out the material (cloth) and had a seamstress make a new unit. By using the slats and hardware from the original door.
It works great. Easily opens and closes.
