I replied earlier that roll doors can be purchased from inland rv @ inlandrv.com they have it listed at $595.00 for a 4 foot by 8 foot roll or $21.70 a foot. Does anyone know of a less expensive place to buy, or is this a really good price, I know that it is expensive but this is gold prices.

Keep and eye out on here and someone will probably give you some that will fit or you can cut down.

That is in the ball park. I suppose it you had to you could make your own or source from a woodworking company.

The think is that the tambour you buy is real wood but the stuff in your trailer is the fake plastic stuff. That is probably the main difference that it costs so much. Also it is probably not made in China like most stuff is.

replacing roll up doors

When I had the Tambour doors restored in my 1978 Minuet, I sourced my new Tambour from Tape-Ease. They have a large selection of tambour materials to select from including:I was replacing the off-white vinyl tambour in the upper cabinets in my Minuet. Since the vinyl didn't hold up well to the summer heat while stored, I chose to go with birch veneer tambour and stained with a white-wash stain that resembles the original, but with a richer, more elegant feel.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

Hey Jeff and Ron,

Thanks for getting back. I'm an idiot, I have the original doors (I packed up the 'parts' from the guy I bought thr camper from and just checked it) but I do need the roll up track that goes between two roll up doors. Not sure if it matters but this is for the compartment above the kitchen in a 77 25' trade wind.
Thank you
Lawrell

Lawrell,
Let me look tomorrow, I'm sure Ive got what you need. I'm renovating a 77 Argosy and I'm not using anything that I removed other than bath components.

I have a 1985 with the original vanilla “sponge painted” interior with the tambour doors. I am planning to replace all the tambour material with bamboo mats which I will cut and spray-paint to a rose gold color to match the pulls. I have the tambour removed, but now I see the pulls have teeny tiny nail heads on the back going through the aluminum into the fabric but not through the other side. Not wanting to break or bend these pulls; need a very thin clipper tool to slide between and clip the mini micro nails. Any thoughts or experience???
