what do yours look like? not sure why they would change them in a year? The ones on my trailer are a breeze to open



parts came today! We were dodging the rain/sleet today so while the guys worked on adding water lines to the garage, I messed with the door. I'm only going to post a teaser photo but Ill have it finished up tomorrow

I was actually surprised how many little differences there were between my 13 and the 14 I walked through last fall at the dealer. My latches are more rectangular than yours, and they are very stiff. I would snap a pic but won't have the trailer out of the cave again until Easter.

Other differences are the interior lights (different design and placement in the 14) and the interior fabrics/colors that I noticed.

BTW - looks like good workmanship there! Looking forward to the final product.

Thanks!!

might have to pull the back of your latch off an see if the rocker arm is rubbing the door. When I first cut mine I made it too tight and the latch mechanism rubbed so I had to trim a little out.



Started a new thread with all the photos:
