I think they finally did. I've got the Rockwood version of that trailer on order and I could swear that it strapped around the door and didn't attach to it.

In our Jayco motorhome, the door slid completely into the wall and the strap attached on both sides of the wall.

Might try the same if it slides all the way in.

Agree with Flybob....The best fix is the longer strap.

However, for other fixes.... Tri-fold Exploding pop-rivets hold very well on thin paneled hollow doors and walls.

The closest color stain I found is Minwax Red Chestnut. I used it to add a wooden lip to the shelf under the TV and it is a very close match. I bought the Minwax touch-up pen in Red Oak for fixing scratches as they didn't have the Red Chestnut color in a touch-up pen.

Pinn - I haven't seen another reply from you but would plug the holes with putty or wood and stain them. Then wrap the strap around the edge of the door and reattach it on the opposite side of the wall. That is how my Rockwood is designed. You can purchase webbed nylon strap online or buy black ones at sporting good stores like REI or hiking/climbing stores.

I've been watching every post on this thread.


Red Chestnut, huh?? I have several other projects in mind that might require stain. I found Red Oak to be very close.

Try Mohawk Wood Repair products for touching up small damage. They have many colors and types of touch up products to choose from. Owned by a nice couple in California.

I would test the stain first but you're just touching up a couple of small spots. I used it on a 1" X 2" piece of cherry wood.
