Hard to tell in a picture, but my guess is due to the awning location. When you open the front door, does it hit the front awning support? I don't mind the gas strut, should yours come with one, but definitely have to be careful. Depending on how well they're mounted, they can rip out of the door if you get too forceful with it. I removed the strut off of the few we had with them as it'd only let the door open 90°.

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