Hey Boxcar, I also had a front locker mishap. Quick repair on summer trip 2010 with white duct tape, turned into renewable repair every 2 years. Still holding on 7 plus years and 200,000 miles later. I call it a 20/20 repair,looks good from 20 ft or 20 mph.----Lou----

alternative repair

You could also see if there is a metal supply shop around and get a piece of thin aluminum diamond plate and fasten that to the door with screws.

Smile Lemon to lemonaide

I had to go out to storage and get an exact measurement for the Trekwood quote of $590. They have the same door on their website for $240 but it is white instead of Ash.

I really like the idea of a polished aluminum diamond plate, Chris. I think I'll add a piece of aluminum on the backside, too. That would fix the structural design problem - the aluminum outside frame has the seam right where the door latch holds it up and the door is so wide that it bends when suspended.

I happened to have a roll of white duct tape with me, trucker LOU. I patched the hole on the front and back sufficiently to finish the camping trip and it is still holding quite nicely. Unfortunately, the hole included the area with the lock so it won't be a long term fix.

I'll post a picture when I get to this but it may be next spring - supposed to snow here tomorrow.

Dealer repair on my old trailer

This is how the dealer repaired the hole I put in my last trailer, they did just a strip of the aluminum diamond plate but if it was thin enough you could cover the entire door.
Good luck
Chris
