this has been brought up before . still have not seen any facts regarding a thin aluminum sheet in the door for the patio option . a thin piece of aluminum would not prevent pressure dings .

I welded an additional bracket in the top corner of the trailer to help support the cable, drilled 2 holes in the door and used a plate on the backside to distribute the pressure, then used cables and hardware to attach. Super east to make and not near as scary as I thought it would be. If you're throwing a spring break party you may wreck the door, but for 3-4 of us adults it looks solid!

It's honestly our favorite part of this trailer is having the rear door open! When the heat of summer comes will be a different story, the i'll be ready to make glass french doors.

Looks like yours was manufactured in 2011 utilizing wood products. At some point they transitioned to foam and metal only.
