Outside hatch frame and door source

The short story;
I'm thinking of adding a small outside storage door, and need a source with prices.

The long story;
I won't decide on definite plans for several months, so I don't want to get everyone too involved at this point. I have an unused area next to the toilet in my SABRE SILHOUETTE 2011 260BHS. It is an area maybe 16"W x 15"H under the shelf at the TP holder. I am thinking I would like another secure, dry storage area accessible from outside. I might have an awning support in the area which would reduce the size of the door. I want to install amateur radio wiring and components in there, so I could use a very small size if I need to.

So where does the frame and door come from? Can I easily order one that matches the others?

I'm resurrecting this thread, so that I can think more about this project.

When we destroyed one of the slam latch doors on our Sabre (don't ask how-it's pretty sad), we called the factory and had a new one shipped directly to the house. There may be a cheaper way to do it, but it was less money than I thought they'd charge. Toni Koenig (574-642-3016) was the parts rep who got everything together.

Have you checked with your local dealer, mine has several in stock for FR products. Also handy for repairing damage in non critical areas. Adding an outside storage door is a great idea!

Thanks for the responses! My local RV dealer carries a lot of stuff, but not this kind of weird request. I will try the Sabre factory supply and see what I can come up with. I hope I remember to post back here with my results - I see lots of threads that leave us wondering as to the outcome, and I don't want to be one of those!
