Exterior door repair and missing screen door
I have a 1969 25 ft tradewind in need of a screen door.
I bought the trailer a year ago and now im getting started with the remodel. First things first is the door area which was hit by something or attacked by a bear and the frame around the door is damaged. If anyone has any experience/know how with this let me know thanks

Firstly, welcome to the AirForums and a 1969 is sure a good place to be if you're new to Airstreams..

Photos - photos - photos!!

Is the frame bent or broken? Pictures would help! Is the door damaged at all? Was the screen door removed or destroyed? Check here on the forums classifieds to see if a '69 door is available here (possibly with frame). Also a search on CraigsList and eBay may be useful. Good luck, Ed

The door frame on a 69 is cast and can be welded by a GOOD welder. The aluminum is crap so it really taked a good welder to weld one

Shipping may be brutal but - if you get up against it - I may have a source for the screen door. There was one in an old RV repair shop this summer that the new owners tried to sell me. Can't recall if the hinges were on it or not...
