Need Replacement compartment door

I goofed and turned into a low rock ledge around a pole and bent the left compartment door that provides access to the water and drain etc. (2ND FROM left REAR)
Does anyone know if one would be available somewhere?

Most times it is faster and many times cheaper to go to a RV Collision Repair Specialist that does fabrication. Finding, ordering and waiting for a replacement door can take weeks and months and have added costs for shipping.
Using the damaged door for measurements and re-usable parts allows fabricators to make a new door and then match the paint.

Give Aubrey's RV a call. If they don't have the door, they can have one made up by the supplier in Yakima. At least that's what they told me when I stopped there last summer. (509) 453-4709

Doors were made by majic metals. Call a give them the size. They still have the drawings a can make in a short time. Last time I spoke to them it was 700 to 1000 based on size. There are still 2 alpines being salvaged at visoner rv
1(606)843-9889. Styles are the same just measure width and height

If the inner structure is not damaged too bad any sheet metal shop can make the door a lot quicker and a lot cheaper than Magic Metals.

Thanks Greenmachine.
BIG HELP... it. I called there and talked to Mike.He sent pictures. I talked to the people at the RV repair shop in Fresno. They talked to Mike and this afternoon was told that they are ordering it. gIt was a fixed panel so is missing the latch and brackets for the cyclinders.
STILL is costing $750.00. Would have been $1000.00 except it has 2 dents.
Things are SURE expensive. That's more $ than my first car.

AGAIN thanks for the help EVERYONE.
I will keep the statu posted.
Ray

Hello there. There's a place here in KY that is the biggest Salvage yard for RV in the US. 606 843 9889. They ship all over the world. That means it's not on sale. They have 4 Alpines there I saw. Call them send a pic and they will show what they have. If you go to there web site a lot is on there.
