Again, there is a reason.
Come on our lot and look at 300 RV's, and find some without a plastic door holder.
There are two options....Winnebago uses an aluminum bar that you put in and take out of clamps, and the hydraulic struts that are typically used when the awning arms are mounted behind the doors.
Only 2 options for cargo doors as well.....hydraulic struts, or the magnetc latches that Prime Time uses (which, we have found don't do very well in wind either)
These aren't aluminum skinned horse trailers, they are thin fiberglass sided, and you would much rather fix a broken plastic t bar than patch and repair holes in the fiberglass skin when the screws are ripped out of the sidewall.
