Replacing rear door on 1968 Trade Wind

I need to replace the door. Apparently, '68 was the last year of the non-hinged doors.

First, does anyone know where to get one or the fair price for one.

Second, has anyone had one built with a hinge? I am not crazy about the idea of a hingeless door. Sounds like a good way to be doorless....

This one will cost you... Terry or Andy at Inland RV will have it. If you have a good metal fabrication shop they can make one or try this old thread HERE. It has some good salvage yards listed. Good luck

We make that door and have them in stock.

The primary reason people lose that door is because of rear end separation, which rips apart the door jamb, that in turn lets the door fall out.

Many owners install a small chain on end end of the door, so they don't lose it, just in case.
