First trip

We took our 25í Toyhauler Puma to Nashvilleand pick up a RZR we bought last week. It towed great but had a few issues which are expected with a new RV. A major issue was the door on the outside side paw kitchen would not stay closed. A bit scary headed down the hwy at 65 look out my passenger side view mirror to see the door flapping in thewind.
Main problem is the quality of metal bars that latch to keep door closed plus the screws are cheap as can be.
Anyone else have this issue ?

Mine popped open on the highway in a curve and knocked the side view mirror off an 18 wheeler.. that was a 500+ dollar fix.

As far as keeping it closed.. I'm still working on that.

WOW ! that must have ripped the kitchen door off also . Must be a big door to hit the side view mirror of an 18wheeler . you're surely lucky

Nope, just a tiny little dent in the frame.

I still get nervous that thing is going to fly open every time I get on the freeway.

Knocked off an 18wheelers mirror and only suffered a minor ding on your kitchen door . what's it made of titanium ?

Semantics.. My outdoor kitchen door popped open and damaged an 18 wheeler to the tune of $532.00 USD.

The damage to my kitchen door is barely noticeable... a very small indentation on the frame of the door.

I just purchased the 25TSC and had the same issue. We had to duct tape the door closed and have not yet found a permanent solution.
