'Stella' needs some help!!!

Hello friends:

Well, the really good news is my 1967 22' Safari, Stella, will be going on its very first camping trip with me as the "new" owner in approximately two weeks - Russian River and Yosemite!

The bad news is that this morning it's current "absent minded" owner, that would be me, somehow didn't properly secure the exterior access panel to the rear of the refrigerator on the driver's side - 14" wide x 12" high. The door dropped off on the way to its new storage facility. I drove the route three times looking for it. No luck!

Needless to say I'm just sick about it. Right now the trailer has a cardboard "band aid" with blue tape sealing the opening. It looks awful.

Does anyone have the spare panel/door I am looking for? I'll pay whatever you think is fair. Any other suggestions? I guess worst case I could find a local aluminum metal fabricator and have them build me some sort of replacement panel.

Thanks all for reading this thread and any help you can give me!

John

PS - My next project is to attach a lightweight chain or wire cable from the trailer to the rear of each panel to keep something like this from happening again.

We've all done it...forgot the "walk around"; that's what keeps Andy busy.
