Basement doors not flat

I just bought a Damon Astoria and the basement doors that are hinged on top each stick out on side so when looking from the back of the coach forward it Looks all kinkly. Any ideas on how to get the doors to be all flat with each other!

Assuming doors are not bent or have cracked side frames, the latch stop on each side brace is adjustable to some extent.

Thanks for the idea. I went out and looked - there is just a slide u shaped rail on top that hinges the door and the latch in the middle on the bottom but i don't think I can tweak the latch to do much to pull in the left side. Not sure if the doors are bench or what.

On some older coaches the bottom rail which the latch is hooked to is only stitch welded on the outside allowing the rail to curl closer to the door. Intern allowing the doors to be uneven. In extreme case you could cut those stitch welds and adjust the re tack. Have done this before. Not a major job. But it looks a lot better with everything even.
