After market Hatch

Hey everybody!
My husband and I bought a 1976 31' Sovereign, and one of the aspects of the trailer that we thought was super neat was this hatch that the previous owner had made. However, we didn't realise at the time that it didn't seal properly. We are now super bummed because we think it is going to cost alot to fix it. Like unhinging and rehanging and/or fabricating a new exterior skin for the hatch. Has anyone dealt with something like this? Do you have advice? We have gutted it and plan on renovating so we have been pinching our pennies for that. Help!

I should also add that pulling on it really hard doesn't work.

Looks interesting. I would find out at what point is it getting hung up? In other words when it is in the down position where is the fit tight. Then move up from there. Take a picture of the hinge area as my guess is that's your problem area, unless the shape doesn't match.
