Help!! Refrigerator Access Door Needed!

I have looked everywhere for the outside access door for the refrigerator on my 29', 1972 Ambassador. Does anyone know a good salvage site or someone that has a "parts" Airstream? Any advise is very appreciated!

Canadian Money

The $200 CDN mentioned in the previous post is about $130.00 U.S.

Has anyone come up with a good solution for the prevention of access door loss? Unlike my 60 Overlander that had hinges my 66 Tradewind doors must be completely removed to open. I was thinking of some sort of safety chain that would allow the door to only open slightly until you release a catch. I also worry about an access door hanging on a chain banging up the trailer skin as I cruise down the highway.

Anyway if somebody else has an idea that worked for them I'd appreciate hearing it.

Preventing breakage of my curved corning windows is also a concern. (but that is another topic)

You might want to try a set of plastic child latches for kitchen cabinet doors. They should be available at any Home Depot or Lowes. The latch cosists of a stem with a hook that is flexible. You have to push the latch out of the caught position to fully open.

Just an idea.

Great idea Brett!

My wife used to have a childproofing business and had a product called Tot Lok that used a magnetic key to release a safety catch. Something like that or the plastic catch you mentioned should reduce the risk of a lost access door.

Thanks for the idea

Melissa,


Your prayers have been answerd. Now you just need to bid if you have not found one yet.

Good luck!

Lost Door Remedy

Invert the door, and install a piano hinge at the bottom.
