74 Airstream Argosy door repair or replace
We just purchased a 74 Airstream Argosy with a door that has been bent from an unscheduled opening during hauling. The frame is quite bent and does not seal now. Wondering what you have done to either repair a problem door or did you replace it?
We have learnt that the internal frame is cast aluminum and not able to be bent back to shape. What options have you used?
So many questions...

I have. '74 Argosy 26'. I believe you will find the frame of the door is not cast aluminum. It is extruded.
There are plenty of topics on re curving the door here on the forum.
I will tell you it involves removing the lock mechanism and the interior skin.
