Cargo hinge full open mod

I have doors on my RV that only open half way and its starting to bug my back. I'm going to have to find a way to modify them to open all the way or get double folding door hinges. Anybody know where I can get something like that? I really don't want to upgrade to a newer RV yet.

The cargo doors on my rv will open about half way and then if you want them higher you just pull them up and the gas shock like openers will open the dor up all the way. Might try it, I dent realize for a few months that they would do that.

Some are restricted so they don't hit the open slides or come close to the furnace exhaust.
Knowing the risk usually all it takes is raising the lower shock mounts to the height that the full open ones are.
As stated some shock mounts have a lower track they run in with 2-3 "up" positions.
