Nope. I'm sticking with the warped due to moisture or other defect. If I were going to break into a trailer I'd bust out the glass and reach inside for the latches. (So you know it wasn't me that did it )

A new door and an hours work with a good helper and you're good as new, except for the stripes that you'll have to order.

Is there any signs of damage to the bottom interior part of the door as if a crowbar or screw driver was used? I don't see any damage to the out side of the door frame it self to where it was pushed againest to pop the door open. Someone would have to use some kind pipe or bar to get the door open far enough to try to pull the door open may be with there hands.

Thanks to you all for your suggestions.

I, too, thought of attempted break-in but there are no marks, tool or bear.

I will fix the door and follow up with a post and a picture.

Thanks again and have a great holiday season!

I too have an issue with one of my doors, but it is opposite of yours. The center of the door is bowed out where the lock is. No break in just the way the doors Is and little or no quality control. All I need to do is place a block of wood at the top and one at the bottom of the door on the inside of the door frame and push the door in the center, I may have to loosen or remove the screws on the center hing before pushing in on the door then drill new holes of the same hing once the door is flush. Good luck with your repair.

I've seen body shop folks take a block of wood and stick it in the door
of a car/truck etc and SLAM the door when they need to "adjust"
a door so it will shut correctly.
Sometimes doors need a little "tweak"!
