If I can ask, how much did the new door cost? I may do this mod on my 23ss.
It was $120+ as I recall with shipping. The website link I provided shows prices/options for various sizes.

So my question is, did you add any additional wood framing to the beef it up?
The floor was the same as the floor in the trailer... just a partition wall framing cabinetry to the two rear beds separated the storage area from the inside. I added nothing to the inside wall to hold the frame. The 1.25 inch thick wall is plenty sufficient.

I will not be storing anything real heavy back there. If I were to put batteries back there, I might use a 2x8 piece of lumber longer then the batteries, then put in plastic battery boxes on top of the lumber to hold any acid that might spill in some unknown event.

The actually cutting of the panel, while daunting was actually very easy, once I was sure of my measurements and that there was nothing behind the panel that I might cut accidentally.

thanks for everyone's positive comments...

funny that there is another current thread about paying people to do work on TV and trailers... I like to do as much as I can, but the older I get the less patience I have doing these things...

I really like your mod!..I'm going to do that one, I just have to find the matching oyster colour. I wonder if you can order it direct from the manufacturer. Thanks for the detailed instructions!
