This also disagrees with JFXG's explanation. Not saying he's wrong, just it disagrees.
The Home Depot description and illustration is correct for whatever manufacturer is supplying the doors to Home Depot. As I said before, the manufacturer makes the rules for their doors. Include a diagram when you order ... most distributors require you to fill out the form before you order. In regards to inswing/outswing, exterior doors assemblies are different. I.E., the bottom threshold, door seals, and window assembly are different to allow for proper weather sealing.

You are correct, my mistake Mr. wizzard.

Who was it that said, " I love it when a plan comes together" ?

Agreeing with each other is always a good thing (unless it's about which chili is best)

Take from an old builder the easiest way to determine if a door is a left hand or right hand is to put your back against the hinge side of the door opening, if the door swing out toward your right hand it is a right hand door, if it swing out toward your left hand it is a left hand door. This goes for interior or exterior doors.

Exactly

However, is a RH door a "Right Hand door"?... (or a "Right Hinge door")?
And is a LH door a "Left Hinge door"?... (or a "Left Hand door")?

Hinge side does not determine the "hand" of a door. This is all just an exercise. Every motorhome door I've ever seen is on the passenger side and opens to the front of the coach, that makes it a left hand door.

I would look carefully at your door for a sticker with a part number and contact the mfr of your rig.

The part will be here soon,.....I will post back,......letting know if the RH ordered part fits. If it does, we all have to assume that an RV entry door is a RH door.

and 98% of those that posted will be incorrect. What are the odds??

Hope the part you ordered is something like a screw or a washer, so it will fit regardless

Ok, the part arrived today. It is the complete latch for a RH screen door. It is identical to the old one, and fits perfectly. So I believe it is safe to say that the entry door on most any RV, is a RH door.

Glad that it worked out for you! Regardless of all the "help" (or should I say confusion) that this thread generated.....
