Baggage door size on 5th wheel?

I buggered up my pass thru baggage door on my trailer last week while backing up into a tight campsite. Mostly just ruined the door but also put a crack in the fiberglass siding beyond the door for about 3 inches. I could fix it perfectly by installing a new slightly larger door. The existing door is 24" wide by 22" tall. There is room to make the hole larger and install a larger door. There isn't anything structural in the way. From the pictures it looks like the 5th wheels have a larger door. Anyone know the size? I found a few websites that I can order a new custom door but I don't think I can get it to match the titanium grey. It's on the back side so perhaps its not too big a deal.

You will have to contact the manufacturer. All I have seen the framing is tight to all sides of the doors and windows.

larger door

I expanded my service door on my 2016 CreekSide 22RB from 22x10 to 22x24 and it barely fit.
I used a strong wire and pushed it through the insulation foam to determine the available depth before hitting the frame.

Unfortunate for you, the frame is likely within an inch to the front of the door.

Measured our door. Going to be too big I would think. It is 42 1/2 x 24 1/2. The other side is even bigger. Our model is 26 RDS

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to go ahead and replace the door with the same and fix the fiberglass. Job is already underway. No paint needed since it will be under a decal. Do you think they will have a pre-cut decal available? I'll call them tomorrow.

Just a follow up to my previous posts. Looks as good as new now. Many thanks to Darin at ORV for getting my the parts I needed quickly and at a very reasonable price.
