New door?

Guess who backed into her Wildwood 18bhxl? Yes, me. Thankfully the Jeep took the brunt of the damage. But I believe I'll need a new door as it is scratched and the bottom hinge bent causing it to no longer align properly with the door stop. Metal frame around the door is also bent in spots but looks like it can be straightened.

Where do I begin to look for a new door?

Lippert typically makes the doors on most RV's.

Them doors aint cheap, but, at least it's just the door on the camper. Don't feel bad. Since 2003, I've backed one into the garage wall, ripped the power cord out of the wall of one, and plowed the garage door with the class a. And, I laugh about it now. It happens.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

I'm wondering if I can just replace the hinge and paint the door. Has anyone ever done this?

Never been in that boat before. I'm sure you could. Hard to tell without pictures, but what's the odds of straightening the hinge?

It possible. But when I looked at it more closely, both the door and screen door are out of alignment with a gap along the hinge side when closed and especially when open. I'm worried about rain leaking in now.
