Added Cabinet Doors

Well, the weather was nice today, so I got a mod done today.

This was easy to do. I used a roto tool to cut out the paneling, and used 1"x2" to frame in behind. It took about 90min from start to finish.

We can now get to the extra towels under the dinnette seat without having to raise the cushion. I did the same thing under the other seat for access to the tool box.

The only pain in the rear part about this project was ordering the doors. I gave the door size to the dealer, and they were told by Forrest River that they did not have a door in this size. Well, this is the same door size used on the bathroom vanity. I took a picture of the door with a tape measure held up to it for sizing. Emailed the picture to the dealer, who sent it to Forrest River. Six weeks later I had my two doors. At least they came with the hinges and knobs already mounted.

Very nice job you did there, Chuck.

It's too bad you had to wait so long for the doors. I would have been pulling my hair out, wanting to do the mod.
Usually, when I set my mine on a project, it has to be completed pretty quick....LOL

Looks good indeed!

I am working on similar mods, and didn't realize that you could order doors from the factory, so was intending to make my own to match. Now you've got me thinking there might be an easier way.... seems like quite the lead time on those though.

Well, I took a shot in the dark on being able to get them. From what I know about RV builders and their "rep" on parts, I was counting on it taking a long time to get them. Seems FR 1st shipped them "piggy back" in a trailer being sent to the dealer. Problem was, the trailer they put them in was not headed to my dealer. They had to track down the doors or reorder them. Not sure which they did, but I got them just the same. Now, I have to go pick up my one replacment chrome wheel cover that has now come in. It was ordered withthe doors. We lost one on Vacation in Oct and have been rolling around with one white wheel ever since.

I ordered 3 doors last week from the factory to be used on a computer desk I plan to build.

squire,

Was this order placed direct, or thru your dealer?
Was an ETA given on delivery?

I ordered direct from Forrest River. 3 doors with hardware and shipping came to $86.93. No ETA but others over on the "Cardinal Club" has fast delivery time. When you call Forrest River, they will direct you to the parts department for your brand of rv.

Just received my doors . UPS just dropped them off. 3 doors, 3 handles, and six hinges. No escutcheons (backing plates for the handles), I will call Kyle tomorrow and see if he forgot to put them in. Regardless I will order them. Doors look great and it was super fast service.
If you recall, I ordered them last Thursday and he said they would be shipped this week.

Wow, impressive service.
Maybe I'll try to order from the factory rather than self-crafting replacements.
Too cold to go out and figure out which replacement doors I need right now though...
